Analogic receives commands from TSA checkpoint CT scanners


Analog Corporation has secured two orders worth up to $781.2 million from the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for the purchase and maintenance of 469 core systems and 469 security control systems Computed tomography (CT) ConneCT at airport checkpoints.

The systems will be used to screen carry-on baggage at TSA checkpoints.

With these two orders, the TSA aims to further improve security screening at airport checkpoints.

Analogic said its ConneCT system is a combination of 3D CT imaging and advanced explosive threat detection software. He claims that this technology provides better threat detection.

The company said its technology also enables airports and regulators to allow passengers to leave approved liquids and electronic devices in their baggage during screening.

This will improve passenger throughput at airport checkpoints in a contactless environment, he said.

Analogic plans to begin rolling out the base as well as full-scale systems this summer.

Commenting on the development, Analogic CEO Tom Ripp said, “Our team is very proud to have been chosen by the TSA as a critical partner in the deployment of next-generation security technologies.

“These awards represent the first step in the transformation of our nation’s aviation checkpoints as we transition to the appropriate combination of security, efficiency, improvement and a potentially unique passenger experience.”

Last September, the TSA awarded Analogic a $198 million order to purchase medium-sized CT security screening systems, which are currently installed at airport checkpoints.
