Analogic Corporation has secured two orders worth up to $781.2m from the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to procure and maintain 469 base and 469 full-size ConneCT computed tomography (CT) checkpoint security screening systems at airport checkpoints.

The systems will be used to screen carry-on items at TSA checkpoints.

With these two orders, the TSA aims to further improve checkpoint security screening at airports.

Analogic said that its ConneCT system is a combination of CT 3D imaging and advanced explosive threat detection software. It claims that this technology offers better threat detection.

The company said that its technology also allows airports and regulators to permit passengers to leave approved liquids and electronics in their luggage during screening.

This will improve passenger throughput at airport checkpoints in a touch-free environment, it stated.

Analogic plans to begin the deployment of the base as well as full-size systems this summer.

Commenting on the development, Analogic CEO Tom Ripp said: “Our team is very proud to have been chosen by the TSA as a critical partner in the deployment of next-generation security technologies.

“These awards represent the first step in the transformation of our nation’s aviation checkpoints as we transition to an appropriate combination of security, efficiency, enhancement and a potentially unique passenger experience.”

Last September, TSA awarded Analogic a $198m order for the procurement of mid-size CT checkpoint security screening systems, which are now being installed at airport checkpoints.
