Smiths Detection Inc has received a $96.8m award from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for its HI-SCAN 6040 CTiXs, Computed Tomography (CT) 3-D Scanners. The multi-year contract was awarded under the TSA Advanced Technology X-ray program which aims to improve aviation efficiencies, passenger experiences and security.
The CTiX examines baggage contents from every angle, generating precise 3D images for TSA officers. According to Smiths Detection, CTiX is also engineered to be upgraded to support TSA’s vision for future procurements, including advanced algorithm development and integration with automated screening lanes.
Smiths Detection previously has supplied screening technology to TSA, including carry-on and hold-baggage X-rays as well as trace detection technology.
