Further Desktop Explosive Detectors Ordered For US Airports

Morpho Detection : 27 May, 2010  (Application Story)
The Transportation Security Administration of America has placed a follow-on order with Morpho Detection for the Itemiser DX explosives trace detectors for use in baggage, cargo and checkpoint screening applications
Further Desktop Explosive Detectors Ordered For US Airports
Morpho Detection has announced an order with the US Department of Homeland Security's Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the second in the past year, for more than 1,200 additional Itemiser DX explosives trace detection (ETD) systems. This order from TSA, which represents the largest single unit order in company history, is valued at more than $35 million and was awarded after a competitive contracting process.

First placed on TSA's Qualified Products List for checkpoint and cargo screening in March 2009, the Itemiser DX delivers qualified explosives detection in a desktop package that is portable, reliable, cost effective and easy to use. Utilizing Ion Trap Mobility Spectroscopy (ITMS) technology to provide unparalleled threat and contraband detection, the Itemiser DX is optimal for checkpoint, cargo, and checked baggage screening.

This follow-up order brings the total number of Itemiser DX units purchased by TSA in the past year to more than 1,600 as part of contracts valued in excess of $50 million.

"We take great pride in the confidence TSA has demonstrated in Itemiser DX's ability to help protect air travellers by placing this second major order in one year's time," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "We laud TSA's efforts to bring more and better advanced explosives detection to the frontlines of the nation's airports."

A lightweight, effective, and user-friendly detection unit, the Itemiser DX meets TSA's strict detection standards.

In addition to use by TSA at US airports, the Itemiser DX is available in a commercial version to protect transportation, industrial and high-risk facilities and locations around the world.

Morpho Detection's order with TSA was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). In addition to providing enhanced detection capabilities to protect travellers and cargo, consistent with the ARRA program, this order will directly help create or maintain US jobs.
