Morpho Detection has received a contract assigned to its local partner, Segtec, by Mexico’s Grupo Aeroportuario del Sureste (ASUR) for 14 CTX™ explosives detection systems (EDS). Under terms of the contract, eight high-speed CTX 9800 DSi™ and six compact CTX 5800™ EDS will be deployed to enhance hold baggage screening and operational capabilities at Cancun International, Cozumel, Veracruz, Villahermosa, Mérida and Oaxaca airports. Segtec will supply maintenance and rapid-response service supported by Morpho Detection to ensure peak performance and maximum system uptime. Capable of screening more than 1,000 bags/hr, Morpho Detection’s high-speed CTX 9800 enhances operational efficiencies by screening bags faster and with fewer false alarms. Designed to allow small- and mid-sized airports plan for evolving threats and future expansion, CTX 5800 combines industry-leading imaging and data collection in a smaller and lighter solution. Morpho Detection’s unique Clarity technology, found in both the CTX 5800 and CTX 9800, enables both systems to screen checked luggage at higher speeds while continuing to deliver high-resolution 3-D (HD3-D) images of each bag.
