OSI Systems’ security division has secured a contract to deliver a range of security inspection systems to Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Qatar.

OSI Systems’ security division has secured a contract to deliver a range of security inspection systems to Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Qatar.

The $59m order was awarded by the Qatar Company for Airports Operation and Management (MATAR).

The scope of the contract includes the delivery of its high-speed Rapiscan RTT 110 system for baggage screening, Itemizer 4DX desktop trace detection system and associated services.

OSI Systems chairman and CEO Deepak Chopra said: “We are honoured to be selected by MATAR for the supply of hold baggage and trace detection systems as part of the process to upgrade its security screening facilities ahead of the planned FIFA World Cup in 2022.

“We believe these systems will enhance overall passenger safety while helping to improve the flow of passengers at HIA.”

HIA was opened in 2014. It operates around 360,000 flights and serves 30 million passengers annually. The airport is designed to handle 100 take-off and landing movements in an hour.

In July, the airport installed new security screening technology to detect explosive materials in complex items and structures.

OSI Systems focuses on designing and developing specialised electronic systems and components for defence, aerospace and healthcare industries.

Earlier this month, the company’s security division won another order to deliver security inspection systems to DHL International.

This contract involves the delivery of the Rapiscan RTT 110, along with multiple Rapiscan Orion 927DX to screen packages and parcels.
