Morpho and Cascade Technologies have jointly installed a next generation security system for a field trial at Glasgow International Airport in the UK.

The walk-through portal system will enable rapid detection of home-made explosives and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in real-time through analysis of air samples, without using ionising radiation or capturing passenger images.

The system has the unique ability to detect gas in terms of measurement speed and discrimination at airport security checkpoints.

The technology has been tested for IED/explosives detection since 2005 with support from the UK Government, following the July 2005 London terrorist attacks.

Morpho is a supplier of identification, detection and e-document solutions.
