Smiths Detection Wins Canadian Contract for X-ray Scanners

Smiths Detection announced a C$19-million order from the Canadian Air Transportation Security Authority (CATSA) to provide advanced X-ray systems for use at airport baggage checkpoints.

Following a similar C$27-million purchase in November 2009, CATSA’s new order is for Advanced Threat Identification X-ray (aTiX) systems, the HI-SCAN 6040 aTiX and HI-SCAN 7555 aTiX. The order is the latest in the phased replacement of traditional single-view systems with advanced multi-view X-ray scanners in airports across Canada.

Cherif Rizkalla, president, chief commercial officer of Smiths Detection, said: “We are proud of our long-standing relationship with CATSA, and this latest order again underlines how our advanced detection technologies are designed to meet our customers’ layered security requirements going forward.”

The aTiX systems capture multiple views of luggage in a single sweep and feature automatic explosives and liquid detection.
