Morpho Detection Announces First Sale of CTX 5800™, Advanced Hold Baggage Imaging for Small- and Mid-Sized Airports

PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Paris Air Show - Morpho Detection, Inc., the detection business of Morpho, Safran group’s security unit, today announced the first sale of its industry-leading, next-generation, compact design, high-performance CTX explosives detection system (EDS), the CTX 5800™, for use by the international airport on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius.

“Morpho Detection is pleased Mauritius International Airport will use the CTX 5800 to help meet its baggage screening requirements”

China State Construction Engineering Corporation LTD (CSCEC), the main contractor for Mauritius Airport, chose CTX 5800 to be deployed with the airport’s new baggage handling system. Designed to assist small- and mid-sized airports take advantage of computed tomography (CT) technology, the CTX 5800 combines industry-leading imaging and data collection in a smaller and lighter solution.

CTX 5800 can help airports maximize effectiveness and efficiency of their hold baggage screening operations, while planning for evolving threats and future expansion. Using the CTX 5800 can help airport operators drive down operational costs and increase return on investment (ROI) for security screening infrastructure. All this can add up to a powerful customer service improvement both for tenant airlines and their passengers.

“Morpho Detection is pleased Mauritius International Airport will use the CTX 5800 to help meet its baggage screening requirements,” said Dennis Cooke, president and CEO, Morpho Detection, Inc. “We are committed to delivering the technologies needed to help meet the security challenges of all airports, regardless of size and passenger volume, and the small footprint CTX 5800 is demonstration of that commitment.”

Mauritius Airport will use the CTX 5800 as an integrated and automated explosives detection solution in its new baggage handling system and terminal building, currently under construction.

With baggage throughput ranging from 400 to 450 bags per hour (BPH), but with reduced size and weight compared to EDS with similar throughputs, the CTX 5800 is ideal for small- and mid-sized airports looking to adopt automated hold baggage explosives screening.

CTX 5800 uses the innovative data acquisition system Clarity to offer identical imaging and data collection capabilities as its larger counterpart EDS, the TSA-certified CTX 9800 DSi™.
