Hi-Scan X-Ray Systems To Be Deployed at US Check Points

Smiths Detection : 27 September, 2010  (Application Story)
Airport checkpoints in America to be protected with Hi-Scan X-Ray detection systems as a result of Transportation Security Administration order on Smiths Detection
Smiths Detection announces the award of an order valued at $43.5 million from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for its Advanced Technology X-ray systems to be deployed at airport checkpoints across the United States.

The order for HI-SCAN 6040aTiX systems is one of the first delivery orders placed against a five-year, Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a ceiling of $325 million. The award of the IDIQ contract was announced earlier in September.

The HI-SCAN 6040aTiX X-ray system is among the first to be included on TSA's Qualified Technology List (QTL) for next generation Advanced Technology X-ray systems.

Stephen Phipson, President of Smiths Detection, said: "This is an important order from TSA for aTiX. Our advanced X-ray technology provides enhanced capabilities at airport checkpoints with the potential for significant performance upgrades in the future."

HI-SCAN 6040aTiX systems, which are manufactured in Edgewood, Maryland, capture multiple views of carry-on bags in a single sweep to provide more information about every piece of luggage. They also feature software algorithms which can be upgraded to detect evolving threats.

Mark Laustra, Vice President of Homeland Security, Smiths Detection, said: "We are proud of our relationship with TSA and our combined efforts to make the world a safer place. We will continue to invest in developing security solutions that are practical, efficient and reliable."
