Morpho Awarded Mexico Airports Contract for Hold Baggage Explosives Detection Systems

Morpho (Safran), through its subsidiary Morpho Detection, announced a contract assigned to its local partner Segtec by Mexico airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (ASUR) for 14  CTX explosives detection systems (EDS).

Under terms of the contract, eight high-speed  CTX 9800 DSi and six compact  CTX 5800 EDS will be deployed to enhance hold baggage screening and operational capabilities at Cancun International, Cozumel, Veracruz, Villahermosa, Mérida and Oaxaca airports. SEGTEC will supply maintenance and rapid-response service supported by Morpho Detection to ensure peak performance and maximum system uptime.

“We are thrilled that ASUR has recognized the CTX family of EDS as having the detection and operational capabilities needed to meet their growing traffic and security demands,” said Karen Bomba, president & CEO, Morpho Detection. “Combined with a global service footprint, Morpho Detection’s CTX EDS give airports of all sizes the ability to deploy an automated checked baggage screening program and increase return on investment (ROI) on security infrastructure purchases.”

Capable of screening more than 1,000 bags per hour (BPH), Morpho Detection’s high-speed  CTX 9800 enhances operational efficiencies by screening bags faster and with fewer false alarms. Designed to allow small- and mid-sized airports plan for evolving threats and future expansion, CTX 5800 combines industry-leading imaging and data collection in a smaller and lighter solution.

Morpho Detection’s unique Clarity technology, found in both  CTX 5800 and  CTX 9800, enables both systems to screen checked luggage at higher speeds while continuing to deliver high-resolution 3-D (HD3-D) images of each bag. Both the computed tomography (CT)-based  CTX 5800 and  CTX 9800 are certified by the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and approved by the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) as meeting EU Standard 3 requirements.
