More Morphos for Air Canada
30 / 06 / 2015
Morpho Detection has won a follow-up order from Air Canada Cargo for Itemiser DX explosives trace detectors with service contracts. The new machines will replace legacy equipment and ensure that the carrier remains compliant with Transport Canada’s air cargo screening regulations.
It follows an initial deployment of similar equipment in 2014 from Morpho, a subsidiary of aviation and defence technology firm, Safran.
Morpho Detection president and CEO, Karen Bomba, the portable Itemiser DX could detect and identify explosives in “challenging environments” on parcels, bags, cargo, skin, clothing, vehicles and other surfaces.
"Itemiser DX has performed well in the field and as a result, Air Canada will deploy additional units to meet the growing needs of our cargo business," said
Air Canada vice president of cargo, Lise-Marie Turpin, added: “Morpho’s service teams have helped us realize maximum uptime and reliability through a proactive field maintenance program."
