Explosive detection system for checked-in baggage to be used at Israel's Airports
Morpho Detection has announced a contract worth up to $50 million to supply the Israel Airports Authority (IAA) with its "System of Systems," the most advanced checked baggage explosives detection system (EDS) available.


The Morpho Detection System of Systems consists of an X-ray Diffraction-based XRD 3500 EDS fully integrated with one or more CTX 9000 DSi Computed Tomography-based EDS.

"The IAA is a leader in the adoption of innovative security practices to better protect the travelling public and we are honoured to be chosen to help them meet their checked baggage screening challenges," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "Morpho Detection's 'System of Systems' is another example of our commitment to developing the most advanced technologies to help airports around the world address constantly evolving security challenges."

"Our number-one priority is the safety of every passenger passing through our airports," said Shmuel Kandel, managing director, Ben Gurion International Airport. "Morpho Detection's 'System of Systems' will allow us to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of checked baggage screening, enhancing both safety and the passenger experience."

The use of orthogonal CT and XRD technologies delivers unparalleled levels of detection and allows airport security operators to enhance security, reduce cost and improve the passenger experience by dramatically reducing false alarms and resultant manual inspections of bags.
