The management team from the New Istanbul Airport has ordered 24 MV3D Hold Baggage Explosives Detection Systems (EDS) from L3 Security & Detection Systems.
L3’s MV3D was designed to provide a high level of detection performance without the use of a rotating gantry. The manufacturer says the machine utilises a series of fixed X-ray sources and multiple detector arrays to create high-resolution 2-D and 3-D images. It generates the throughput and image quality of previous European Union (EU) Standard 2 systems, while providing the detection performance required of EU Standard 3 Approved and TSA Certified systems, all at a high level of reliability, says L3.
The first phase of the new airport’s development is due to be completed in 2018.
