Air cargo screening order for Rapiscan systems

OSI Systems : 17 October, 2008  (Application Story)
Hold baggage and parcel screening systems from Rapiscan to be supplied to American air cargo and freight forwarding company
OSI Systems has announced that its Security division, Rapiscan Systems has received an approximate $3 million contract from an undisclosed US air cargo and freight forwarder for multiple Rapiscan MVXR5000 multi-view hold baggage and parcel screening systems. The systems are to be used to screen air cargo aboard passenger planes within the US under the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP).

Under the CCSP in accordance with the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007, Congress mandated that TSA establish policies to ensure inspection of 50 percent of all air cargo carried on passenger airplanes by February 2009, with a 100 percent target by August 2010.

Rapiscan Systems President, Ajay Mehra, stated, "For over fifteen years, Rapiscan has provided high performance security screening solutions to companies in the global air cargo industry. In the case of TSA's Certified Screening Program, we have worked closely with air cargo companies to develop solutions that meet advanced throughput, detection, timing and budget requirements. We continue to support airlines, freight forwarders and government agencies both in the US and around the world to ensure the implementation of new air cargo screening regulations."

The Rapiscan MVXR5000 system is a multi-view dual-energy X-ray imaging unit that enables advanced automated explosives detection, class leading image quality and low false alarm rates. It has been deployed in airports worldwide and has the ability to scan up to 1,800 items per hour. It features a built-in flexible system configuration that allows easy integration into any existing security architecture.
