International airport in America takes Morpho Detection's ShoScanner on trial basis to gather data for regulatory approvals for mainstream use for the detection of threats contained in footwear
Evaluation Trials For Shoe Scanner At Indianapolis Airport
Morpho Detection has launched a data collection study of its next generation ShoeScanner at Indianapolis International Airport (IND), one of the final steps in preparing this solution for regulatory approvals.

The data collection is taking place at Indianapolis International Airport's pre-security Civic Plaza and is expected to provide critical insights into real-world operational requirements, such as human interaction and ease-of-use. Morpho Detection's latest-technology shoe scanning device (SSD) is designed to detect shoe-borne threats, allowing air travellers to be screened at security checkpoints without the need to remove their shoes.

"We're excited to take this important next step towards the acceptance and adoption of advanced shoe screening technology," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "There is a growing global demand for a convenient and effective shoe scanning option, and we're pleased to offer Indianapolis travellers the opportunity to be part of the final development of this solution."

"The Indianapolis Airport Authority is pleased to partner with Morpho Detection as a test location for this project," noted Mark Hedegard, IAA's senior director of business development. "We fully support the research and development of new airport security innovations and are very interested in systems that will enable us to enhance and improve the overall airport experience for passengers."

Morpho Detection's SSD technology can detect a wide range of explosives and metal shoe-borne threats using multiple integrated technologies, including Ion Trap Mobility Spectroscopy, Quadrupole Resonance and active metal weapons detection. Designed for high-volume and throughput, the ShoeScanner provides a convenient, quick and effective scan for metal and explosives not only in shoes, but also on the lower leg.

"The Indianapolis data collection will take us one step closer to the checkpoint of the future - armed with real-world data, we are confident we can deliver highly effective shoe scanners that provide a fast, convenient solution for air travellers," said John Hill, chief technology officer, Morpho Detection.

The Morpho Detection ShoeScanner is the next-generation evolution of the former SRT (Secure Registered Traveller) Kiosk, which for the first time integrated explosives detection and shoe scanning technologies along with biometric identification to support registered traveler programs in the US The next-generation ShoeScanner does not incorporate biometric technology.
