390 Kent Ave.
Elk Grove Village, IL, 60007

Press release date: March 30, 2011

LOS ANGELES - Siemens Industry, Inc. (NYSE: SI) unveiled its new Siemens Apron Baggage Screening (SABS) solution this morning with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Located at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Terminal 5 for Delta Air Lines, this is the world's first SABS project.

Siemens Apron Baggage Screening system is an innovative approach to baggage screening demands at airports. The system provides an inline baggage screening matrix with explosive detection system (EDS) devices that are linked to the existing baggage handling system at the airport, essentially providing a baggage handling and screening system "in a box."

The new checked-baggage inspection system is a TSA-compliant solution that was implemented in much less time, at a lower cost, and with noticeably less disruption to terminal operations than traditional methods - making it a safer and more pleasant experience for passengers traveling through Terminal 5.

"For airlines, this new baggage handling system is a more efficient, cost-effective way to modernize luggage handling and security screening without interrupting day-to-day operations," said Jay Turney, Corporate Real Estate, Delta Air Lines, Inc. "Also, removing large screening systems from airport lobbies can reduce congestion at check-in, further enhancing security operations and making it more convenient for passengers."

"The SABS system provides one-stop-shopping. The benefit to passengers is that they can just drop their bags at the ticket counter and go; instead of getting a tag in one line and then dragging their bag through the lobby to drop it off at the screening area," said Oliver Hauck, President, Mobility Division, Siemens Industry, Inc. "With this solution, Delta is making it not only safer, but also easier for passengers traveling through LAX."

This turnkey solution is based on a pre-engineered building and modular screening matrix design, which allows a project to be completed significantly faster than conventional systems. The contract was signed in November 2009, and the project was completed in mid-November 2010, nearly one month ahead of schedule.
