X-Ray Baggage Scanning System For Indira Gandhi Airport

Morpho Detection : 02 September, 2010  (Application Story)
India's largest airport has taken computed tomography based X-Ray scanning and explosive detection equipment from Morpho Detection for efficient screening of passenger baggage
Morpho Detection has announced the installation of six CTX 9400 DSi explosives detection systems (EDS) at the newly constructed Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL), one of the largest airport terminal buildings in the world.

The CTX 9400 DSi systems are the first in India to utilize the advanced imaging capabilities of computed tomography (CT) technology for aviation security. This technology not only helps to ensure the security of travellers but also has a low false alarm rate, allowing screeners to positively identify threats while expeditiously examining all baggage.

The new terminal's construction, a project led by GMR Infrastructure Limited, a company of the GMR group, will expand the operational capacity of Indira Gandhi International Airport, which already serves as a primary gateway to India with nearly 34 million passengers arriving and departing each year. The new facility has the capacity to handle 12,800 bags per hour, and the CTX 9400 DSi will play an integral role in maintaining passenger safety while also increasing efficiency in the baggage screening process.

"Morpho Detection is pleased to bring CT technology for checked bag screening to India," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "With the adoption of the CTX 9400 explosives detection solution, Indira Gandhi Airport serves as a model for the future of aviation security across India."

"Safety and convenience has always been our goal at DIAL. We strongly believe that we will achieve more with the installation of high-tech CTX 9400 systems at Terminal 3. We have worked closely with Morpho Detection to implement the best technology and solutions in the industry," said Prabhakararao Indana, CEO - Airport Development, DIAL.

Four CTX 9400 DSi systems are installed as inline components of the terminal's baggage handling system while the remaining two are installed as standalone machines.

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.
