Morpho Itemiser DX deployed in global airlines

Precision, reliability, ease of use: the Itemiser DX Explosives Trace Detector (ETD) by Morpho (Safran) has attracted the attention of major airlines.

In the United States, the rules have changed in the air cargo sector. Beginning January 1st 2014, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the United States Department of Homeland Security requires airlines to comply with new cargo security regulations. Only detection equipment that is approved or qualified on the TSA's Air Cargo Screening Technology List can be used: "Airlines have been preparing for this change for the past two years," pointed out Jennifer Haigh, Strategic Account Manager at Morpho."Choosing our Itemiser DX allows them to comply with the new regulations."

The Itemiser DX was introduced to the market in 2009 and was classed as “qualified” by the TSA for air cargo in 2010. More than 250 units were deployed world-wide in 2013 by global airlines– including United Airlines and Air Canada. Itemiser DX is the system capable of simultaneously detecting positive and negative ions. Thanks to this feature, it can detect and identify a wide-range of explosives. Its main advantage: detection precision and reliability which result in a very-low false alarm rate. Itemiser DX also has a user-friendly interface with integrated video help files and a back-up battery. "Thanks to these specifications, airlines are able to ensure that their air cargo screening program meets the new regulation without negatively impacting the flow of cargo to its destination," emphasized Jennifer Haigh. "The fact our service teams are present in almost every major airport helps us ensure peak performance and maximum system uptime for our customers." "We provide our customers with a fast and efficient service, whether for initial delivery and commissioning of the equipment or for training its users," stated Jennifer Haigh.
