OSI Systems’ Checkpoint Baggage Scanner Achieves European Type “C” Certification for Detection of Liquid Explosives

HAWTHORNE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OSI Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSIS), a vertically-integrated provider of specialized electronic products for critical applications in the Security and Healthcare industries, today announced that the Rapiscan 620 DV multi-view advanced baggage scanner has passed the “Type C” standard set by the European Commission for Civil Aviation (ECAC) for detection of liquid explosive threats, as well as other potential threats. The 620DV meets the upcoming EU deadline to relax current restrictions on the ability of passengers to carry-on liquids onto airplanes.

Rapiscan President Ajay Mehra commented: “We are pleased to achieve this major milestone for European aviation passengers and airports. The Rapiscan 620DV has been proven in aviation checkpoints around the world. The 620DV AT not only meets regulatory standards for threat detection around the world, it has significant operational benefits including smaller footprint, greater energy efficiency, and reduced weight loading.”

The Rapiscan 620DV has also been approved for use by the US Transportation Security Administration for both aviation checkpoint screening and air cargo screening. The 620DV AT is one of the most widely deployed multi-view checkpoint X-ray screening systems. It can also be used for critical non-aviation applications such as air cargo screening, military checkpoints, customs inspection and protection of national infrastructure. The 620DV generates multiple views of scanned items, which allows operators to identify threats faster, improving checkpoint throughput and pinpoints potential threats so the item can be found immediately.
