CATSA orders explosives trace detectors
Implant Sciences announced that its QS-B220 desktop explosives and drugs trace detector has been deployed to more than 160 airports across the United States and Europe over the past twelve months.
The company received an order for 122 units from the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) in January, 2016. Those units are currently being deployed to airports across Canada.
Implant Sciences won an order for 1,170 units from the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in November, 2014. These units, which began shipping in December 2015, are continuing to be deployed across nearly 200 United States airports.
“In winning competitive bid after competitive bid, Implant Sciences' QS-B220 is now the most widely deployed non-rad ETD in the world," stated Darryl Jones, Implant Sciences' executive vice-president.
More than 1,000 units have also been sold to support ECAC demand to European airports in 14 countries.
The QS-B220 uses ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) to rapidly detect and identify trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial and homemade explosives. The unit is designed with no radioactive materials, push-button maintenance and diagnostics, and a patented internal automatic calibration system.
