Rapiscan $6m explosive detection systems order for air cargo customer

Rapiscan® Systems, part of OSI Systems Inc’s Security division, has received an order – valued at approximately $6 million – from a leading international logistics and air cargo company for multiple units of its RTT® 110 (real time tomography) explosive detection system (EDS).

Rapiscan RTT - real time tomography: luggage on an airport conveyor belt.

The RTT 110 uses a proprietary solid-state system which combines high speed and high resolution to show detailed 3D images of baggage with low false alarms. Its unique design enables efficient inspection of hold baggage and air cargo while meeting the most recent threat detection standards – Rapiscan’s RTT has passed the European Civil Aviation Conference’s (ECAC) HBS EDS Standard 3 threat detection requirement and is being used by numerous airports and air logistics providers around the world.

Deepak Chopra, OSI Systems’ Chairman and CEO, commented, “We are pleased to support an existing RTT customer with new instalments of our industry-leading EDS solution.”
