Hong Kong Airport Takes High Resolution Explosive Detection Equipment

Morpho Detection : 09 November, 2010  (Application Story)
Morpho Detection is supplying the CTX 9400 DSi computer tomography imaging systems for explosives detection to Hong Kong International Airport
Hong Kong Airport Takes High Resolution Explosive Detection Equipment
Morpho Detection has been contracted to install four CTX 9400 DSi explosives detection systems (EDS) by Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK), the operator of Hong Kong International Airport.

The new installation of the CTX 9400 DSi systems will replace the airport's existing deployment of Morpho Detection's CTX 5500 DS scanners. Both models use computed tomography (CT) imaging technology. The CTX 9400 DSi offers higher resolution on-screen images, allowing system operators to make smarter, safer, faster decisions. Cleared baggage can be sent on to its destination more quickly and easily while potential threats - including homemade and improvised devices - can be readily identified for further inspection.

Hong Kong International Airport has repeatedly been recognized for the quality of service delivered. Named the "World's Best Airport" among facilities serving more than 40 million passengers annually for the past three years by Airports Council International, the airport has relied for years on Morpho Detection's advanced detection solutions to ensure passenger safety and cargo security.

"Hong Kong's decision to install the advanced CTX 9400 DSi marks a new chapter in what has been a strong business relationship for more than 13 years," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "Morpho Detection's unfailing commitment to customer service and the reliability of these scanners demonstrate the quality and value we add to an already superior facility like Hong Kong International Airport."

The CTX 9400 DSi creates an X-ray image as each piece of luggage passes through its tunnel. Using complex computer algorithms, this image is analyzed and compared to the properties of known explosives. If an image triggers an alarm, the CTX 9400 DSi displays a high-resolution screen image that allows the operator to determine if a real threat exists.
