Smiths Detection Wins Order for Airport Checkpoint X-Rays

Smiths Detection Inc. (SDI) was awarded a $6.5 million contract to supply Advanced Technology X-ray scanners, accessories and service for carry-on baggage screening under the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Advanced Technology 2 (AT-2) contract. Similar scanners, procured under past awards, are already deployed at airports across the United States.

The HI-SCAN 6040 aTiX (automatic threat identification X-ray) scanners, which combine multi-view, high resolution imaging with sophisticated software to detect explosives and other threats, will be delivered over the next eight months. aTiX is capable of detecting a wide range of threats and illegal substances and can be readily adapted as new threats emerge.
