Air Canada installs explosives detectors

AIR CANADA is using new desktop explosives trace detector devices to screen air cargo shipments in situ.
Morpho’s Itemiser DX detectors have been deployed at Air Canada cargo locations to replace legacy systems and maintain compliance with enhanced US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) cargo screening mandates.
Karen Bomba, chief executive of Morpho Detection, says: “The ability of the Itemiser DX to detect and identify explosives in challenging environments, combined with Morpho’s global service teams, gives air cargo companies the capability to maintain regulatory compliance while ensuring peak performance and maximum system uptime.”
A lightweight, portable desktop system, Itemiser DX can detect residue from explosives on parcels, bags, cargo, skin, clothing, vehicles and other surfaces.
“Morpho Detection has helped us upgrade our screening capabilities and maintain TSA compliance in an efficient way and with no impact to our operations,” says Barb Johnson, senior associate, of regulatory affairs at Air Canada.
