Smiths Detection has received a $26.7 million follow-on order from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for additional Advanced Threat Identification X-Ray (aTiX) systems which will be deployed at airports across the United States.

This third TSA order follows an initial contract for $21 million in October 2007 and a $25.2 million order in June this year.

Unlike conventional X-ray technology, aTiX systems capture multiple views of carry-on bags in a single sweep in the same throughput time as existing systems. Using advanced software algorithms, they are able to alert the operator to potentially harmful items.

Stephen Phipson, Group Managing Director of Smiths Detection, said, This is another significant win for aTiX which is now helping enhance security in airports across both the U.S. and the EU.
