Munich Airport Selects Morpho's CTX 9800 EDS for Hold Baggage Screening

Morpho (Safran), through its subsidiary Morpho Detection, today announced a contract with the District Government of Upper Bavaria for the deployment of its high-speed CTX 9800 DSi™ explosives detection system (EDS) at Munich International Airport.

Once deployed, the computed tomography (CT)-based CTX 9800 will be used to screen all passenger checked baggage -- referred to as Level 1 screening -- for select high-risk flights. In addition, CTX 9800 will be used to help Munich Airport prepare for a full transition to Standard 3 explosives screening capabilities in accordance with approaching European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) mandates.

The world leader in CT and X-ray Diffraction (XRD) Standard 3 EDS, Morpho has supplied Munich and other airports in Germany with XRD-based EDS developed in Hamburg for more than 10 years.

"Morpho is thrilled to continue working with Munich Airport and local aviation security authorities to integrate advanced hold baggage screening capabilities through the deployment of the first CTX™ EDS in Germany," said Karen Bomba, president & CEO, Morpho Detection. "By reducing false alarms and time-intensive manual inspections of checked luggage, CTX 9800 is delivering on Morpho's commitment to help airports prepare for approaching regulatory mandates and security challenges."

In addition to meeting EU Standard 3 requirements, the highest standard set by ECAC, CTX 9800 is certified by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

Morpho Detection's CTX family of EDS are the most widely used in the world, with nearly 2,000 shipped worldwide.
