Australia and New Zealand are jointly collaborating to develop and trail world-leading auto- detection algorithms for 3D X-Ray technology to enhance biosecurity screening and speed travel.
Minister for Agriculture David Littleproud said the two nations today agreed to continue collaboration and to trial technology approaches across biosecurity screening arrangements on both sides of the Tasman.
“Australia and New Zealand enjoy a long history of strong biosecurity and successful collaboration. Today, we’re taking that record to the next level,” Minister Littleproud said.
“Today’s agreement will see world-leading screening technologies trialled to protect our agricultural sectors and pristine environments.
“For passenger flights between our countries we will be working together to deploy world leading algorithms that automatically detect biosecurity risk using 3D X-Ray technology.
“The end result will be a better standard of protection with less disruption and a better experience for travellers.
“We are also exploring similar technology options for air freight and sea cargo by setting up third party trials with industry.
“That means less delays for freight and reduced regulatory costs for Australian and New Zealand businesses—all while maintaining the current high levels of biosecurity compliance.
“Australia and New Zealand enjoy a biosecurity status that is the envy of the world. I am very proud that from today, we’ll be working together in new ways to keep it that way.”
