Explosive detection system for Cornish airport

Morpho Detection : 12 February, 2016  (Application Story)
The airport at Newquay in Cornwall has got ahead of the 2018 EDS mandate with the installation of a CTX 5800 explosive detection system from Morpho
Explosive detection system for Cornish airport

Morpho Detection has announced a contract with UK’s Cornwall Airport Newquay to supply and service advanced detection systems that screen passengers and baggage for explosives and contraband.

Following competitive tendering, Cornwall Airport Newquay selected Morpho’s compact CTX 5800 explosives detection system (EDS) to screen all passenger checked baggage. In addition, Morpho will supply baggage handling system (BHS) components, including conveyers, to enable a fully-automated hold baggage screening program. As a result, Cornwall Airport Newquay will be the first UK Airport to comply with Department for Transport regulations mandating Standard 3-approved EDS to screen all hold baggage by September 2018. At the checkpoint, Morpho will supply cabin baggage X-ray systems and walkthrough metal detectors to facilitate a robust, multilayered approach to checkpoint security.

“Morpho commends Cornwall Airport Newquay for being the first UK airport to meet the September 2018 mandate and is excited to be their partner in upgrading and expanding hold baggage and checkpoint screening capabilities,” said Karen Bomba, president & CEO, Morpho Detection. “By investing in localized sales and service support, Morpho has created unmatched, field-proven solutions for airports of all sizes to meet current and emerging security challenges and regulatory mandates.”

Richard Thomasson, Operations Manager at Cornwall Airport Newquay, added: “As a rapidly growing regional airport we want to stay at the forefront of security, service and facilities provision. The new screening equipment shows our commitment to customer service improvement and will help us continue to provide a high-level of aviation security at the airport.”

Designed to allow small- and mid-sized airports to plan for evolving threats and future expansion, CTX 5800 combines industry-leading imaging and data collection in a smaller and lighter solution. The CTX 5800 is approved by the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) as meeting Standard 3 requirements and certified by the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

Morpho’s CTX family of EDS are the most widely used in the world, with nearly 2,000 units deployed worldwide.
