TSA Qualifies Air Cargo Screening Systems

The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has added three new x-ray systems from L-3 Security & Detection Systems (SDS) to its Air Cargo Qualified Product List (QPL).  The PX 10.10-MV, PX 15.17-MV 200 and PX 18.18-MV 200 are the latest additions to L-3’s TSA-qualified air cargo products, bringing the company’s total to 15.
Thomas M Ripp, President of L-3 SDS, commented:  “With these latest additions, our TSA-approved air cargo portfolio now includes dual-view offerings with larger tunnels and higher power options.  These solutions provide customers with the flexibility to quickly screen break-bulk freight and consolidated air cargo, even in densely packed skids.”
The new systems serve a range of break-bulk and oversized freight screening applications from air cargo, postal and receiving dock, to customs and quarantine screening.  The PX 10.10-MV offers a low belt height for screening non-palletised freight.  The unit is made from modular segments that can be wheeled individually through a standard doorway or elevator and quickly reconnected – allowing the system to be deployed in many areas previously only accessible to much smaller units.
The high-powered PX 15.17-MV and PX 18.18-MV platforms, which come in both 200 and 320kV power configurations for denser goods and organic materials, reduce the need to unpack contents for inspection, accelerating screening of consolidated cargo.
