Morpho Detection, a supplier of airport security systems, has been contracted by the German Federal Police to supply 160 Itemiser 4DX explosives trace detectors (ETD) for use in airports across Germany.
The Itemiser 4DX is being deployed to screen passengers and baggage at airport checkpoints throughout Germany to ensure compliance with new EU legislation for enhanced explosives screening.
The Itemiser 4DX is a lightweight and portable desktop system powered by a non-radioactive ion trap mobility spectrometer (ITMS) source. It detects and identifies trace amounts of explosives on skin, clothing, carried items, bags, vehicles and other surfaces.
Karen Bomba, president and CEO for Morpho Detection, said, “The German Federal Police helps secure air travel at some of the busiest airports in Europe and we are thrilled they have recognized the operational and detection capabilities of Itemiser 4DX by selecting it to protect travelers. The ability of Itemiser 4DX to non-invasively detect and identify explosives in challenging environments, combined with Morpho’s global service partnerships, helps airports increase return on investment (ROI) while planning for growth and evolving security mandates.”
