SYDNEY – March 12, 2015

Morpho (Safran), through its subsidiary Morpho Detection, today announced the Itemiser® 4DX desktop explosives trace detector (ETD) has been added to the Australian Office of Transport Security's Aviation Security Screening Equipment List. 

As a result, Itemiser 4DX is now approved for airport screening of passengers and baggage in Australia.

"Morpho is pleased the Office of Transport Security has recognized the explosives detection and operational capabilities of Itemiser 4DX by approving it for use at airports throughout Australia," said Karen Bomba, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "By combining Itemiser 4DX's advanced explosives screening capabilities with a global service footprint and rapid-response capabilities, Morpho offers a comprehensive, unmatched end-to-end solution."

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. A global leader in trace detection technology, Morpho has deployed ETD systems to airports, correctional facilities, defense installations and border crossings throughout Australia.
