The U.S. Transportation Security Administration has ordered more than 1,200 additional explosive detection systems from Morpho Detection Inc.
The California company said the order is worth $32 million and is the fourth order under an indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity contract for its Itemiser DX desktop explosives trace detection systems.
'We are very pleased by the confidence TSA has demonstrated in Itemiser DX's ability to help protect air travel across the United States,' said Dennis Cooke, president and chief executive officer of Morpho Detection. 'We are confident in Itemiser DX's ability to deliver the most advanced explosives detection possible to checkpoint, air cargo and checked bag screening at the nation's airports.'
