Analogic Corporation Receives U.S. Government Certification for eXaminer XLB Explosives Detection System
PEABODY, Mass., Nov. 12, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), a leading designer and manufacturer of medical imaging and aviation security technology, announced today that the U.S. Transportation Security Laboratory has certified the new eXaminer(R) XLB Explosives Detection System for checked-baggage, air carrier applications. With a throughput of up to 1,200 bags per hour, the eXaminer XLB meets the demands of large-capacity airports.
The eXaminer XLB uses Analogic’s patented Continuous-Flow computed tomography technology to detect a wide range of explosives in all types of checked baggage. Incorporating Analogic PowerLink(TM) non-contact power transmission technology, a one-meter-wide tunnel opening, high-speed detection software algorithms, and dual-energy imaging, the eXaminer XLB is twice as fast as conventional CT-based explosives detection systems installed today in airports.
“The eXaminer XLB joins the eXaminer SX (configured for small airports) and the eXaminer 3DX (configured for medium-sized airports) to form the most comprehensive family of certified EDS checked-baggage scanners in the industry,” added Peter Cempellin, vice president and general manager of Analogic’s Security Systems Division. “The eXaminer XLB is the highest-throughput CT-based checked-baggage scanner available. We are very proud of the role the eXaminer family plays in providing unsurpassed aviation security for the traveling public.”
Analogic’s president and CEO, Jim Green, said, “With the certification of the eXaminer XLB, we can now offer airports a complete family of checked-baggage scanners, enabling them to choose the one that best fits their specific throughput needs. As larger aircraft, like the A380 and Boeing Dreamliner, become the long-haul airliners of choice worldwide, higher-capacity baggage scanning systems like the eXaminer XLB are required to keep airport passengers moving quickly and safely.”
