L-3 Security & Detection Systems has announced that its eXaminer 3DX-ES explosives detection system (EDS) has passed the European Union Commission Regulation Standard 3 for EDS under the European Civil Aviation Conference Common Evaluation Process (CEP) of Security Equipment.
The system was tested by the Service Technique de l’Aviation Civile, the engineering department of France’s aviation regulatory agency.
“We are pleased that the eXaminer 3DX-ES has joined the recently approved eXaminer SX and eXaminer XLB in achieving EU Standard 3 CEP approval,” said Thomas M Ripp, L-3’s President. “Built on the proven eXaminer 3DX, this enhanced-speed system inspects more than 750 bags per hour and is a low-risk, cost-effective solution to higher-speed explosives detection for checked baggage screening.”
Since 1998, L-3 has used medical-grade imaging technology developed for aviation security. More than 1,000 eXaminer systems have been procured by airports domestically and internationally.
