Hong Kong International Airport Selects Morpho Detection’s Advanced Imaging Solution to Upgrade Baggage Screening Technology

Newark, Calif. – Nov. 1, 2010 – Morpho Detection, Inc., part of Morpho, Safran group's security business, today announced that it has been contracted to install four CTX 9400 DSi™ explosives detection systems (EDS) to Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK), the operator of Hong Kong International Airport.

The new installation of the CTX 9400 DSi systems will replace the airport's existing deployment of Morpho Detection's CTX 5500 DS™ scanners. Both models use computed tomography (CT) imaging technology. The CTX 9400 DSi offers higher resolution on-screen images, allowing system operators to make smarter, safer, faster decisions. Normal baggage can be sent on to its destination more quickly and easily while potential threats – including homemade and improvised devices – can be readily identified for further inspection.

"Hong Kong's decision to install the advanced CTX 9400 DSi marks a new chapter in what has been a strong business relationship for more than 13 years," said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection, Inc. "Morpho Detection's unfailing commitment to customer service and the reliability of these scanners demonstrate the quality and value we add to an already superior facility like Hong Kong International Airport."
