Smiths Detection IONSCAN 500DT Explosives Detector on 2014 TSA Air Cargo Screening 'Qualified' Technology List

Smiths Detection’s IONSCAN 500DT is included among “qualified” technologies for Explosive Trace Detection on the TSA Air Cargo Screening Technology Lists (ACSTL) and meets new procurement guidelines that took effect on January 1, 2014.

A reliable trace detection system used to screen cargo, packages or baggage, the IONSCAN 500DT uses Ion Mobility Spectroscopy (IMS) to perform material analysis in seconds helping to expedite inspections.

TSA’s guidelines state that “when procuring equipment from the ACSTL, regulated parties are encouraged to select equipment from the qualified technology section.” Since August 2010, IONSCAN 500DT meets the new 2014 qualified standards. IONSCAN 500DT systems deployed earlier can be easily upgraded to maintain qualification.

Lance Roncalli, U.S. Managing Director for Smiths Detection, said: “The IONSCAN 500DT is one of the most widely deployed trace detection solutions at airports around the world because it is highly effective and easy to use. By providing easily installed upgrades, Smiths Detection ensures this technology will continue to help protect travelers around the world for years to come.”
