Smiths Detection has received an order from the
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to supply CTX 9800
Explosives Detection Systems (EDS) for checked-baggage screening.
The systems, which utilize computed tomography
(CT) imaging, will be deployed to U.S. airports as security
equipment upgrades, or as part of enhanced security measures.
The CTX 9800 3D CT imaging technology detects
and identifies explosives. The scanners can be incorporated into
customized networking solutions and deliver operational
efficiencies, including energy savings. Along with being certified
by TSA, the CTX 9800 is also approved by the European Civil
Aviation Conference as it meets the Standard 3 requirements.
Shan Hood, President of Smiths Detection Inc.,
said, “TSA’s continued use of CTX 9800 EDS in airport screening
upgrades or expansions demonstrates Smiths Detection’s leadership
in applying computed tomography to aviation security. This
additional order for CTX 9800 EDS will enable even more U.S.
airports to protect travelers while ensuring that security
screening keeps pace with a growing number of passengers.”
This order follows a US$70 million order from
the TSA in June 2018 for CTX 9800 Explosives Detection
Systems (EDS) to be deployed at ten airports across the U.S.
