OSI Systems’ security division has won a $20m contract to provide ANA Aeroportos de Portugal with multiple units of its RTT 110 explosive detection system.

The real-time tomography units are expected to be installed at various airports throughout Portugal to screen passengers’ hold (checked) baggage. OSI will also provide ongoing maintenance, service, and support.

The RTT employs a proprietary stationary gantry approach to provide high resolution 3-D imaging, and its unique design facilitates the efficient inspection of hold baggage and air cargo while maintaining the capability to meet recent threat detection standards. RTT 110 has met the European Civil Aviation Conference's (ECAC) HBS EDS Standard 3 threat detection requirements and has been deployed by numerous airports and air logistics providers, the manufacturer said.

Los Angeles-based OSI Systems is a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of specialised electronic systems and components for critical applications in the homeland security, healthcare, defence, and aerospace industries.
