X-Ray Detection System Gains Standard 3 Certification

Morpho Detection : 21 July, 2010  (New Product)
The XRD 3500 explosive detection system from Morpho Detection can be used in European Union baggage screening applications after gaining EU standard 3 certification
X-Ray Detection System Gains Standard 3 Certification
The XRD 3500 from Morpho Detection has become the first X-ray Diffraction based explosives detection system (EDS) to be tested and evaluated by the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) as meeting the ECAC Standard 3 technical specifications, the requirement for complying with the European Union's Standard 3 for hold baggage screening.

As a result of this milestone, EU airport operators and security organizations can meet tomorrow's EDS mandates with a system that is standards compliant through 2012 and beyond. Beginning in 2012, Standard 3-certified EDS systems will be the preferred screening solution at EU airports. Future mandates will include a Standard 3 certification requirement.

"The XRD 3500 utilizes advanced X-ray Diffraction (XRD) technology to pinpoint the exact location of potential explosives in any given suitcase," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "With this capability, airports are able to screen checked bags more effectively, reducing the number of bags requiring manual inspection. With fewer false positives and hand inspections of luggage, airports can reduce costs and increase return on investment for security infrastructure, while travelers benefit as more bags make it to their planes on time."

Using XRD technology, the XRD 3500 can accurately distinguish explosives from non-threat materials in luggage without the need to open the bag or remove its contents. Additionally, the XRD 3500's extremely low false alarm rate results in a simplified inspection process. XRD technology identifies materials based on their molecular composition, not densities or other less distinctive characteristics. As a result, the XRD 3500 can identify potentially threatening substances in many forms - including powders, solids and liquids - where other technologies cannot.
