OSI Systems : 21 January, 2010  (Application Story)
Tijuana and Guadalajara Airports in Mexico as well as Regional Airports in the Country will be Equipped with In-Lind Hold Baggage Inspection Systems from Rapiscan in $35 million deal
OSI Systems, a vertically-integrated provider of specialized electronics and services, has announced that its Security division, Rapiscan Systems, has been awarded an approximate $35 million contract from Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico (GAP) for a turn-key aviation security project for the construction and installation of baggage handling systems integrated with the Rapiscan MVXR5000 high-speed multi-view X-ray hold baggage screening systems at multiple Mexican airports.

GAP operates 12 airports throughout Central and Northern Mexico including the major cities of Guadalajara and Tijuana and tourist destinations such as Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos, La Paz and Manzanillo.

OSI Systems Chairman and CEO, Deepak Chopra, stated, "Rapiscan is unique in its track record and ability to provide a broad range of aviation security solutions. As such, in a competitive process, GAP has chosen Rapiscan as the provider of the most effective and efficient proposal to meet this project's complex and stringent requirements. We believe that our combination of a successful track record, cost-effective, state-of-the-art technologies and efficient services make us an ideal supplier of aviation security systems for fast-growing emerging markets such as Latin America."

Rapiscan System's President, Ajay Mehra said: "We greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with GAP to help it implement a world-class baggage screening solution for the airports it manages." Mr Mehra continued: "The Rapiscan MVXR5000 is an excellent solution for rapidly growing markets that need superior threat detection, throughput, and reliability."

The Rapiscan MVXR5000 system is a multi-view dual-energy X-ray imaging unit that enables advanced automated explosives detection, class leading image quality and low false alarm rates. It has been deployed in airports worldwide and has the ability to scan up to 1,800 items per hour. The solution is part of the Company's family Hold Baggage Screening product line and its air cargo screening solution offerings. The MVXR 5000 has been deployed in airports, airlines, freight forwarders and other air cargo companies globally.
