L-3 Security & Detection Systems Awarded High-Speed Explosives Detection Systems Follow-On Orders From the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority

L-3 Security & Detection Systems (L-3 SDS) has announced that it has received two official award notices from the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) to supply ten additional high-speed eXaminer® XLB explosives detection systems (EDS).

L-3's eXaminer XLB is a certified dual-energy EDS specifically optimized for screening checked baggage in high-throughput airport environments. Capable of scanning over 1,200 bags per hour (BPH) in-line, it keeps baggage moving continuously through a one-meter-wide scanner.

"These follow-on awards demonstrate our long-standing commitment to CATSA in providing the highest-performance solutions available to meet evolving security requirements," said Tom Ripp, president of L-3 Security & Detection Systems. "CATSA has always been at the forefront of deploying screening technologies, and we are proud to supply them with our eXaminer XLB to maximize their baggage screening effectiveness."

The eXaminer XLB generates high-resolution 3-D image data for explosives detection by combining helical CT with dual-energy imaging. Using 3-D Continuous Flow CT technology, the system generates high-resolution, medical-quality images in real time. With advanced tools that include 360-degree rotational views of entire bags and individual threat objects, the system allows operators to quickly and confidently clear bags for flight or designate bags for search.
