Morpho’s Itemiser 4DX Receives ECAC Approval for Explosives Screening
PARIS – December 18, 2014
Morpho (Safran), through its subsidiary Morpho Detection, today announced the Itemiser® 4DX explosives trace detector (ETD) has successfully completed European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Common Evaluation Process (CEP). .
As a result, Itemiser 4DX is now approved for airport screening of passengers and baggage throughout ECAC's 44 member nations. Built on the industry-leading Itemiser® ETD platform, Itemiser 4DX delivers advanced explosives detection and screening capabilities powered by a non-radioactive ITMSTM (Ion Trap Mobility Spectrometer) source. Optimized for ease-of-use and mobility, Itemiser 4DX eliminates the administrative, regulatory, storage and shipping requirements associated with a radiation-emitting trace detection source.
"The quick approval of Itemiser 4DX by ECAC validates its detection and security capabilities to help airports meet current and emerging threats and regulatory mandates," said Karen Bomba, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "Combined with a global service footprint and rapid-response capabilities, Morpho offers a comprehensive, unmatched end-to-end solution."
By leveraging long-life consumables and internal calibration, Itemiser 4DX seeks to minimize operational costs for airports and air cargo facilities, law enforcement agencies and government and critical infrastructure installations.
