THE EXAMINER SX explosives detection system (EDS) from L-3 Security & Detection Systems has passed the EU Commission Regulation Standard 3 under the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Common Evaluation Process (CEP) of Security Equipment.
L-3 President Thomas M Ripp has expressed his delight at the news, adding that the SX now joins the eXaminer XLB in its achievement. “The reduced-size eXaminer SX delivers the best value in certified CT threat detection with continuous-flow detection, excellent in-line throughput and robust 3-D imaging capabilities,” he said.
The SX is a lighter version of its predecessors and automatically clears non-threat bags for flight, resulting in fewer bags being sent to costly secondary search areas. The SX can generate real-time 3-D colour images, including 360-degree rotational views.
