TSA green lights new cargo screening system

   L-3 Security & Detection Systems (SDS) said three new X-ray systems for screening breakbulk freight and skids have been added to the U.S. Transportation Security Administration’s Air Cargo Qualified Product List (QPL).
   SDS said the new systems are the PX 10.10-MV, PX 15.17-MV 200, and PX 18.18-MV 200, and they will enable the company to offer 15 TSA-qualified air cargo products to help airlines, freight forwarders and other certified cargo screening facilities. The devices cover cargo in both passenger and cargo planes.
   “With these latest additions, our TSA-approved air cargo portfolio now includes dual-view offerings with larger tunnels and higher power options,” said Thomas M. Ripp, president of L-3 Security & Detection Systems, in a statement. “These solutions provide customers with the flexibility to quickly screen breakbulk freight and consolidated air cargo, even in densely packed skids.”
   The new systems can support a variety of breakbulk and oversized freight screening applications, such as air cargo, postal and receiving dock, customs, and quarantine screening.
   The PX 10.10-MV screens non-palletized freight and offers a modular architecture using pieces that can be wheeled through a standard doorway and quickly reconnected to be deployed in a variety of settings.
   The higher-powered PX 15.17-MV and PX 18.18-MV platforms focus on denser goods and organic materials, reducing the need to unpack contents for inspection and, the company hopes, accelerating the screening of consolidated cargo.
   SDS said future plans involve creating more adaptable and higher-powered devices that can fit in more locations and reduce the need to breakdown cargo. The company’s equipment screens cargo ranging from fruits and vegetables to electronics, and is currently in operation in screening facilities worldwide.
