HAWTHORNE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OSI Systems, Inc. (the “Company” or “OSI Systems”) (NASDAQ: OSIS) today announced that its latest computed tomography (CT) solution for cabin baggage screening, the 920CT, has received Standard C2 approval by the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) for airport checkpoints.
ECAC has established the Standard C2 under the Explosives Detection Systems for Cabin Baggage (EDScb). This standard establishes that large electronics such as laptops no longer need to be removed for screening.
“Evolving global threats to public safety have made regulatory board-certified solutions, like the 920CT, a critical path to establishing enhanced security at the checkpoint. We are proud that this system has achieved ECAC Standard C2 approval and look forward to working with airports in international markets to deploy this solution,” said Deepak Chopra, OSI Systems’ Chairman and CEO.
The Rapiscan® Systems 920CT, powered by Analogic, was designed to increase the security and efficiency of checkpoint operations. The advanced threat detection software embedded within the system is capable of quickly identifying and highlighting potential threats. The 920CT has also been engineered to work in conjunction with the Company’s Rapiscan Tray Return System (TRS™) to improve checkpoint flow and passenger throughput.
