High-Performance Explosives Detection System Approved for Aviation Hold Baggage Screening in Israel
NEWARK, CA--(Marketwire - June 12, 2012) - Morpho Detection, Inc. (MDI), the explosives and narcotics detection business of Morpho, Safran group's security unit, today announced its compact-design CTX explosives detection system (EDS), the CTX 5800™, is now certified by the Israel Security Agency (ISA) for aviation hold baggage screening in Israel.
Designed to assist small- and mid-sized airports take advantage of computed tomography (CT) technology, CTX 5800 combines industry-leading imaging and data collection in a smaller and lighter solution. As a result, CTX 5800 can help airports maximize effectiveness and efficiency of their hold baggage screening operations, while planning for evolving threats and future expansion.
"We are pleased ISA has recognized the operational and detection capabilities of the CTX 5800 by certifying it for use in Israel," said Brad Buswell, president and CEO, Morpho Detection, Inc. "By delivering industry-leading imaging and data collection capabilities in a reduced-footprint EDS, Morpho Detection is delivering on our commitment to give airports of all sizes the opportunity to leverage CT technology to deploy an automated checked baggage screening program."
In addition to ISA, CTX 5800 is certified by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and approved by European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) as meeting European Union Standard 3 requirements.
With a baggage throughput ranging from 400 to 450 bags per hour (BPH), CTX 5800 can help airport operators drive down operational costs and increase return on investment (ROI) for security screening infrastructure. CTX 5800 uses the innovative data acquisition system Clarity to offer identical imaging and data collection capabilities as its larger counterpart EDS, the TSA-certified and E.U. Standard 3-approved CTX 9800 DSi™.
