Morpho Detection has launched a data collection study of its next-generation ShoeScanner at Indianapolis International Airport in Indiana, US, in preparation for regulatory approvals.

The scanner is designed to detect explosives and other metals in shoes and on lower legs without forcing passengers to remove their shoes.

The device uses multiple integrated technologies such as ion trap mobility spectroscopy, quadrupole resonance and active metal weapons detection to detect a range of explosives and metals.

It is hoped that the data collection study at the airport's pre-security civic plaza will provide insights into real-world operational requirements, such as human interaction and ease-of-use.
