High definition baggage screening technology

GE Security : 27 March, 2009  (New Product)
Combining explosive detection and 3-D medical imaging technology, GE Security have gained TSA certification for the CTX 9800 DSi airport baggage screening system
GE Security has announced that its Homeland Protection business has attained TSA certification for the CTX 9800 DSi, the next generation CTX in GE's explosives detection systems (EDS) line.

This certification will give airports the opportunity to protect travelers with advanced high-definition 3-D imaging (HD3-D) baggage screening technology, formerly only available in healthcare settings, combined with industry-leading explosives detection.

A dramatic evolution in the CTX series, the CTX 9800 breaks new ground with its innovative data acquisition system called Clarity -- bringing together for the first time GE Healthcare's pioneering 3-D imaging technology and GE Security's industry-leading automated explosives detection technology. Clarity's unprecedented HD3-D imaging delivers a 360°, finely-detailed view of baggage contents, providing operators with an increased ability to identify threats and lower operational costs. The CTX 9800 also provides users the ability to easily adapt to new threat definitions in the future.

'The CTX 9800 utilizes advanced imaging technology originally developed for healthcare applications and customizes it for security applications,' said Dennis Cooke of GE Security's Homeland Protection business. 'Our unique Clarity technology enables checked luggage to be scanned by an EDS system at unprecedented speeds with the highest resolution in the industry. The CTX 9800 delivers 3-D volumetric images with exceptional detail that can lead to more effective identification of potential threats and increased operator efficiency.'

The CTX 9800 represents a significant leap forward by improving on the throughput of the current EDS generation with a path toward further advancements. It is the second in a progressive series of enhancements for GE's CTX 9000 DSiTM EDS product line. This offers customers the ability to protect their baggage screening infrastructure investments by ensuring a continual upgrade path to the latest EDS technologies through a sequence of regularly-scheduled new product releases. Both the CTX 9000 and CTX 9400 DSiTM can be upgraded to the CTX 9800.
