Smiths Detection Wins $63M X-Ray Scanner Order From U.S.

Smiths Detection has won a $62.9 million order to supply automatic explosives scanners for carry-on baggage under the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Advanced Technology 2 (AT-2) contract.

The aTiX (automatic threat identification X-ray) systems, which use multi-view, high resolution imaging to detect explosives and other threats, will be installed this year at several airports across the United States.

Brian Jones, Interim President of Smiths Detection, said: “I am proud and privileged that TSA has put its confidence in us as a partner in its mission to keep the traveling public safe. Our aTiX platform provides enhanced and progressive levels of detection capability, to help protect against evolving threats to aviation security.”

Already installed in over 70 U.S. airports, aTiX is capable of detecting a wide range of threats and illegal substances and can be readily upgraded as new threats emerge.

Terry Gibson, Vice-President of Smiths Detection, Americas, said: “Our investments in technology and infrastructure are geared to meet the needs of major customers like TSA. Our checkpoint systems, which will be manufactured at our main U.S. facility in Maryland, provide the highest levels of both security and overall value.”
