NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--L3 Technologies (NYSE:LLL) announced today key competitively won awards in Europe that total more than $20 million for its ClearScan® checkpoint computed tomography (CT) and MV3D® hold baggage solutions.
“These wins demonstrate the strength of our aviation security solutions, which are powered by best-in-class technologies to deliver superior performance, reliability and cost of ownership,” said Christopher E. Kubasik, L3’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President. “Aviation security is a key growth area for L3, where we offer our global customers a fully integrated solution for enhanced security, safety and passenger throughput.”
L3’s hold baggage scanner, the MV3D, features industry-leading detection capability and multi-view 3-D X-ray technology. The system’s advanced design allows bags to be stopped for short periods and still permits the detection analysis to proceed. This reduces costly rescreening of these bags and is a key operational benefit. The hold baggage European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Standard 3 mandate comes into effect starting in 2020 and will be fully enforced by 2022. Airports around the world are selecting the MV3D to replace the older Standard 2 systems.
L3’s ClearScan is the first checkpoint CT to pass the TSA AT-2 requirement and meet the ECAC Cabin Baggage C3 Standard. ClearScan is the most widely deployed checkpoint CT on the market and is currently installed in the United States, the Netherlands, the U.K., Turkey, Germany, Singapore and Japan. Thanks to its enhanced detection capabilities, ClearScan doubles the passenger throughput with the lowest false alarm rate in the industry. Passengers appreciate the convenience of keeping electronics and liquids in their bags.
“Our solutions deliver an unbeatable combination of innovative technology, superior threat detection, higher performance, cost-efficiency and improved customer experiences,” said Pak Chin, President of L3’s Security & Detection Systems sector. “Airports are choosing our solutions to achieve the highest levels of security.”
