The TSA Orders Further Itemiser DX Scanning Systems

Morpho Detection : 22 December, 2010  (Application Story)
The innovative Itemiser explosive trace detection system from Morpho Detection will be further deployed across US airports due to extra order from the Transportation Security Administration of the country
Morpho Detection has announced the fourth delivery order awarded under the Itemiser DX Indefinite-Delivery Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) base contract from the US Department of Homeland Security's Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for more than 1,200 additional Itemiser DX desktop explosives trace detection (ETD) systems.

The TSA delivery order, valued at more than $32 million, follows the largest single unit order in company history received last summer. Morpho Detection was awarded the base contract as a result of a competitive solicitation and evaluation process.This delivery order under the IDIQ base contract brings the total number of Itemiser DX units purchased by TSA to more than 2,800 for a total value of more than $80 million.

"We are very pleased by the confidence TSA has demonstrated in Itemiser DX's ability to help protect air travel across the US," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection, Inc. "We are confident in Itemiser DX' ability to deliver the most advanced explosives detection possible to checkpoint, air cargo and checked bag screening at the nation's airports."

Placed on TSA's Qualified Products List for checkpoint and cargo screening in March 2009, the Itemiser DX is one of the next-generation explosives detection solutions at U.S. airports.

The desktop Itemiser DX is reliable, cost effective and easy to use. Utilizing Ion Trap Mobility Spectroscopy (ITMS) to provide unparalleled threat detection, the Itemiser DX is optimal for checkpoint, air cargo and checked baggage screening.

A lightweight, effective, and user-friendly detection unit, the Itemiser DX meets TSA's strict detection standards and has also been certified for use outside the US by the Israeli Prime Minister's Office, the United Kingdom Department for Transport and the UK Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB), as well as certifications and pending certifications in other countries.

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. It is the ideal complement to CT-based CTX 5800 and 9800 explosives detection systems for break-bulk and larger air cargo screening.
