Smiths Detectionís HI-SCAN 10080 XCT Explosives Detection System (EDS) has passed laboratory certification for high-speed checked baggage screening from the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

The XCT is an imaging solution based on Smiths Detectionís dual-energy, dual-view X-ray technology and Computed Tomography (CT) technology from Analogic Corporation.

Mal Maginnis, President of Smiths Detection, said, ďWith TSA laboratory certification now added to EU EDS Standard 3 approval, the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT is ideally suited for installation at all major airports outside the U.S. It is the fastest, largest tunnel-size baggage screening system in the industry today, surpassing the most stringent security screening requirements while both improving airport operations and reducing costs.Ē

Lab certification of detection performance is vital for systems seeking inclusion in the TSAís Qualified Products List, a prerequisite for deployment at US airports. Sales to the TSA are also subject to additional testing at its Integration Facility (TSIF) as well as operational testing at an U.S. airport.

 The lab approval represents a key endorsement for the scanner which, having already passed the European Union Commission Regulation Standard 3 for Aviation Safety, is now being marketed globally outside the U.S..

With a belt speed of 98 feet per minute (0.5 metres per second), the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT can screen up to 1,800 bags per hour.
