Morpho’s Liquid Explosives Detection Solution Under Development for 2013 Deployment

Morpho Detection has announced that its XDi X-ray Diffraction-based liquid explosives detection solution is currently under development and would be deployed in 2013. The “Type D” solution is being designed at Morpho’s Hamburg XRD Center of Excellence.

Morpho Detection's advanced-technology X-ray Diffraction-based checkpoint screening solution is being designed to allow passengers to keep their liquids as they pass through security checkpoints.

The XDi solution will have the ability to detect liquid explosives and components at checkpoints and in passengers’ bags. Currently, the X-ray Diffraction technology has the capability to identify liquid explosives reliably and has low false alarm rates in passengers’ bags and containers. The technology will be able to accurately identify the location of liquid explosives.

The molecular composition of screened materials is used to identify their characteristics. This feature enables identification of dangerous explosive substances in solid, liquid and powder forms. Morpho’s XDi solution will also feature traditional X-ray for identifying non-explosive threats.

The automated liquid explosives detection feature in the XDi will help reduce manual inspections and false positive rates, leading to reduced costs for airports. It will also increase the return on investment that the airport spends on security infrastructure. Passengers would also benefit as they could pass through the security checkpoints rapidly.

The European Union has declared a plan to lift the ban on air passengers carrying liquids. Morpho Detection plans to get the XDi solution ready for operational testing in the year 2012 and for regulatory testing in 2013.
