Analogic Installs COBRA, First Checkpoint Auto-EDS System, at Cleveland’s Hopkins International Airport

PEABODY, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 13, 2007–Analogic
Corporation (NASDAQ: ALOG) today announced that it has installed the
COBRA®, the first Checkpoint Auto-EDS (Automatic Explosives and
Weapons Detection System) at a carry-on checkpoint in Cleveland’s
Hopkins International Airport, the first such system to be piloted at
a U.S. airport checkpoint. The COBRA employs advanced computed
tomography technology to screen baggage, providing 3-D images of the
contents of a bag to resolve alarms.

Jim Green, President and CEO of Analogic, noted, “We are very
pleased to install a volumetric, CT-based scanner at a checkpoint for
the first time. We believe Analogic’s advanced computed tomography
technology will provide TSA’s security officers with the most
sophisticated tool available today to detect explosives and weapons
automatically.”

Mike Young, TSA Cleveland’s Federal Security Director, added,
“Auto-EDS will provide our highly trained Transportation Security
Officers with an additional technical capability to protect the
traveling public and our commercial aviation infrastructure from the
most serious threats: improvised explosive devices. The additional
detection capabilities of Auto-EDS also may allow TSA to modify
carry-on baggage screening procedures to increase efficiency and
reduce passenger inconvenience.”

The COBRA has an 80-cm tunnel opening that can generate
high-resolution 3-D images of the contents of a bag or bin in real
time. An automatic Bin Return System (BRS) saves additional time and
labor, returning empty bins beneath the system on a motorized
conveyor. The COBRA is designed to support aviation, surface
transportation, and other checkpoint portals more efficiently than
conventional equipment, reducing operating and life-cycle costs while
increasing throughput and threat detection capabilities.

Analogic Corporation is a leading designer and manufacturer of
advanced health and security systems and subsystems. The Company is
recognized worldwide for advancing the state of the art in Automated
Explosives Detection, Computed Tomography (CT), Digital Radiography
(DR), Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Patient
Monitoring, and Advanced Signal Processing. For more information,
