Mauritius International Airport Selects Morpho’s CTX 5800 Explosives Detection System

Morpho Detection, a division of Morpho, the security unit of the Safran Group, announced that it has achieved the first sale of its next generation CTX explosives detection system, the CTX 5800, to Mauritius international airport on the Indian Ocean.

Morpho Detection has announced the first sale of its industry-leading, next-generation, compact design, high-performance CTX explosives detection system (EDS), the CTX 5800(TM), for use by the international airport on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius.

The China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC), which is the primary contractor for the Mauritius Airport, has selected the CTX 5800 for the airport’s new baggage handling system. The CTX 5800, with its small and compact size, has been developed to help both small and medium sized airports for imaging and data collection.

The device could efficiently and effectively conduct the hold baggage screening operations, even while making plans for future expansions and potential threat situations. Airport operators could lower operational expenditures and also boost their return on investment for security screening infrastructure by using the CTX 5800, thereby leading to powerful improvements in the services offered to their tenant airlines and passengers.

The CEO and President of Morpho Detection, Dennis Cooke revealed that the company is thrilled that the CTX 5800 would be used in the Mauritius International Airport. He also mentioned that they are committed to provide technologies, which help in meeting the security challenges in all airports, irrespective of their size and passenger volume. The Mauritius Airport would utilize the CTX5800 in its new baggage handling system and terminal building for automated explosives detection. This system has a baggage throughput that ranges from 400 to 450 bags on an hourly basis. It utilizes an advanced data acquisition system and identical imaging and data collection features as the larger CTX 9800 DSi.
