Morpho Detection, division of the security business of the Safran group, has fulfilled an $8.7 million supply order to provide its EntryScan 4 explosive trace detection (ETD) portal to its sole distributor for the nuclear industry, NETco.
The EntryScan 4 portal is able to detect a wide explosive range within seconds by using the patented Ion Trap Mobility Spectrometer (ITMS) of Morpho. The portal is designed to decrease the maintenance time and incorporates a fast-access panel that permits easy availability of main system components.
Dennis Cooke, Morpho Detection’s CEO and President, said that Morpho is thrilled to offer the EntryScan 4 which would empower the nuclear industry to prevent and identify threats to the nuclear facilities in the country. Cooke revealed that the nuclear industry is a pioneer in checkpoint and physical security for the energy sector and Morpho is focusing on developing systems for protecting the critical infrastructure in the U.S.
Mark Scribner, NETco’s President, informed that his company is working on security issues related to the nuclear industry. He added that he is happy about NETco’s collaboration with Morpho to offer enhanced detection technologies to the nuclear industry for securing nuclear facilities in the U.S.
The installation of these EntryScan 4 portals will help in the detection of dangers from explosives in U.S. nuclear facilities.
