L-3’s ClearScan Explosives Detection System Qualifies for EU Type D/D+ Standard 2

This paves the way for liquids and electronics to remain in carry-on bags

L-3 Security & Detection Systems (L-3 SDS) announced that its new ClearScan explosives detection system (EDS) has passed the European Union (EU) Regulation Type D/D+ Standard 2 for cabin baggage under the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Common Evaluation Process (CEP) of Security Equipment. L-3’s ClearScan cabin baggage screener uses CT technology and advanced algorithms to deliver automated detection of liquid and bulk explosives at a low false alarm rate. It offers passengers the convenience of keeping liquids and electronics in carry-on bags during the security screening process.

“Our commitment to provide our European customers with advanced technology to enhance airport security and efficiency is stronger than ever,” said Tom Ripp, president of L-3 Security & Detection Systems. “We are in discussions with airports worldwide regarding trials and are confident that ClearScan will comply with the forthcoming EU detection Standard C3.”

ClearScan detects bulk and sheet explosives, as well as liquid and other homemade explosives (HMEs), and is designed to expand its detection capability as future threats emerge. An operator’s review of weapons and other prohibited items is accelerated with 2-D and 3-D high-resolution imaging and powerful alarm resolution tools, including virtual laptop removal.
