OSI Systems, Inc. announced that its Security division received an order for approximately $20 million from ANA Aeroportos de Portugal to provide multiple units of its RTT 110 (Real Time Tomography) explosive detection system. The units are expected to be installed at various airports throughout Portugal to screen passengers’ hold (checked) baggage, and the company has been engaged to provide ongoing maintenance, service, and support for these installations.
OSI Systems’ Chairman and CEO, Deepak Chopra, commented, "We are excited to support this customer with our leading CT checked baggage screening solution that is widely deployed at major international airports. As airports continue to upgrade and expand their infrastructure to meet the latest screening standards, improve baggage throughput and air passenger safety, we continue to invest in innovative solutions and technology to meet the evolving needs of the aviation industry."
The RTT employs a proprietary stationary gantry approach to provide high resolution 3-D imaging, and its unique design allows the efficient inspection of hold baggage and air cargo while maintaining the capability to meet recent threat detection standards. RTT 110 has met the European Civil Aviation Conference's (ECAC) HBS EDS Standard 3 threat detection requirements and has been deployed by numerous airports and air logistics providers.
