Analogic Corporation Receives $16 Million Order for Its Aviation Security Systems




Estimated Cost:


Analogic Corporation (NASDAQ: ALOG) announced today that it has received an order from L-3 Security & Detection Systems for Explosives Detection Systems (EDSs) valued at approximately $16.1 million. The order includes eXaminer® 3DX systems as well as eXaminer SX systems, recently certified by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Peter Cempellin, Vice President and General Manager of Analogic’s Security Systems Division, said, “This order signifies the strong position the eXaminer 3DX still has in the marketplace. In addition, this is the first order for our new eXaminer SX, which was certified by the TSA in January of this year. The eXaminer SX provides industry leading computed tomography (CT) technology in a smaller footprint, giving smaller airports affordable, advanced explosives detection capability. First commercial shipments, which will begin this June, are destined for airports worldwide.” The adaptable, streamlined eXaminer SX is suitable for airport lobbies and baggage make-up areas and can also be fully integrated with baggage handling systems. The lower cost eXaminer SX provides the same proven detection capabilities as the larger eXaminer 3DX in a lighter, more compact frame. The system is available in three configurations: in-line, partially integrated, and standalone. Both the eXaminer 3DX and eXaminer SX systems use 3-D Continuous-Flow CT technology and generate high-resolution 3-D color images in real time. The eXaminer systems also enable 360-degree rotational views of the entire bag and its contents, and provide continuous automatic detection of explosives.
