Reveal Imaging Technologies, Inc., a developer of industry-leading threat detection solutions, announced the Reveal CT-80DR Explosives Detection System (EDS) participated in the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Common Evaluation Process of security equipment (CEP) and is the first to pass the new European Union Commission Regulation Standard 3.
Testing was conducted in the Netherlands by one of the four certified EU test centers in Europe. The new test protocol follows the Common Testing Methodology for automated Explosives Detection Systems for deployment across the European Union.
“Reveal continues to lead the industry in developing technology that effectively and efficiently assists in the baggage check-in and inspection process,” said Michael Ellenbogen, President and CEO, Reveal. “We're extremely pleased that there is now an opportunity to submit our EDS technology for approval by a single EU test authority for use by airports and other security operators across the EU. All countries that follow European Union aviation safety regulations can be assured that our equipment meets the most current and stringent requirements set forth by the EU.”
The Reveal CT-80DR was the first EDS designed for 100 percent checked baggage inspection. The system utilizes Reveal's proprietary Dual Energy, Computed Tomography (CT) architecture. This unique approach to EDS design enables full size checked baggage to be inspected in the smallest possible footprint, allowing the system to be deployed where other EDS cannot due to size and cost restraints. The Reveal CT-80DR's detection and low false alarm performance is available at a fraction of the cost of traditional certified scanners.
In addition to the EU, Reveal systems hold the most current certifications in many other countries, including the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the General Administration of Civil Aviation of China (CAAC), the Direction General of Civil Aeronautics (DGAC) and the Government of Israel.
