Morpho Detection Explosives Detection Systems Bring State-of-the-Art Technology to India’s Largest Airport
Newark, California. – Aug. 31, 2010 – Morpho Detection, Inc., part of Morpho, Safran group’s security business, today announced the installation of six CTX 9400 DSi™ explosives detection systems (EDS) at the newly constructed Terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL), one of the largest airport terminal buildings in the world.
The CTX 9400 DSi systems are the first in India to utilize the advanced imaging capabilities of computed tomography (CT) technology for aviation security. This technology not only helps to ensure the security of travelers but also has a low false alarm rate, allowing screeners to positively identify threats while expeditiously examining all baggage.
“Morpho Detection is pleased to bring CT technology for checked bag screening to India,” said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection, Inc. “With the adoption of the CTX 9400 explosives detection solution, Indira Gandhi Airport serves as a model for the future of aviation security across India.”
“Safety and convenience has always been our goal at DIAL. We strongly believe that we will achieve more with the installation of high-tech CTX 9400 systems at Terminal 3. We have worked closely with Morpho Detection to implement the best technology and solutions in the industry,” said Prabhakararao Indana, CEO - Airport Development, DIAL.
