Transportation authority order for explosive trace detectors

Smiths Detection : 16 March, 2009  (Application Story)
The US Transportation Security Administration places order on Smiths Detection for lightweight hand-held detectors for trace explosives
Smiths Detection announces a $2 million order from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) completed in November 2008 for SABRE 4000 hand-held trace explosives detectors. These lightweight systems can detect trace amounts of substances from either particle or vapour samples.

Cherif Rizkalla, President, Security and Inspection, Smiths Detection said: "Our advanced trace detection and identification solutions are developed to enhance existing security measures. We are pleased to continue working closely with TSA providing advanced technologies that keep the public safe."

Mark Laustra, Vice President of Homeland Security, Smiths Detection said: "The highest levels of security are better met when sophisticated, layered approaches are put into place. The SABRE 4000 gives TSA a mobile option to complement their existing security solutions."

Currently TSA is utilizing more than 4,500 Smiths Detection desktop trace detectors at airport security checkpoints across the nation.
