Morpho Detection has received a $100m contract from the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) for the delivery of explosives detection systems.

As part of the five-year contract, the company will deliver its high, medium, and low-speed and over-length explosives detection systems (EDS) to support CATSA’s next-generation baggage screening programme.

Initially, Morpho Detection will deliver eight compact CTX 5800 and four high-speed CTX 9800 DSi systems for deployment at Canadian airports in 2013.

Morpho Detection president and CEO Brad Buswell said that the CTX line of ED has the capabilities to meet requirements of CATSA’s next-generation passenger checked baggage screening.

"From the high-speed CTX 9800 to the compact CTX 5800, Morpho Detections CTX EDS give airports of all sizes the ability to deploy an automated checked baggage screening programme and increase ROI on security investments," Buswell said.

The CTX 9800 DSi system features a new data acquisition system, which generates high-resolution 3D images, while its user interface assists operators to maximise the value, detail and threat separation leveraging the high-resolution 3D images.

The CTX 5800 EDS incorporates high-definition 3-D imaging baggage screening and form factor which helps in addressing screening challenges.

Both the EDS systems are loaded with Multiplexing, which is the software and hardware that networks the systems with the user and control interfaces for remote screening of checked baggage.

Additionally, systems are certified by the US Transportation Security Administration and approved by the European Civil Aviation Conference as complying with European Union Standard 3 requirements.
