Analogic Receives $2.6 Million Funding for COBRA DualUse 3D Threat-Detection Systems

Analogic, a technology developer for aviation security and medical imaging, has announced that the US Transport Security Administration has awarded the company a funding worth $2.6 million.

The funding has been provided for upgrading the COBRA DualUse threat detection systems that integrate the 3-D computed tomography technology developed by Analogic.

The COBRA DualUse system has been developed for screening checked and carry-on baggage at airport checkpoints to improve security and efficiency. It has been designed to reduce lifecycle costs and enhance operational efficiency while providing advanced threat detection capabilities. Since the singe detection system offers checked baggage and checkpoint capabilities, its dual use lowers the costs associated with maintenance, deployments and acquisition of the system. The system is TSA-certified and enhances the overall security by detecting explosives and other threats. Furthermore, it features bin return system, provides 360-degree rotational views and offers a high throughput, thus reducing the need for secondary searches and the need to remove laptops and liquids. In the checkpoint mode, the DualUse system can scan over 250 passengers and 450 bags/bins hourly.

The Chief Executive Officer of Analogic, Jim Green stated that the COBRA DualUse system improves computed tomography threat-detection capabilities at airport checkpoint, especially at medium- and small-sized airports.

Analogic has deployed over 1000 threat detection systems and subsystems required for improving security in airports across the globe. Analogic’s range of explosive detection systems include the eXaminer XLB for large airports, the eXaminer 3DX for medium to large airports and the eXaminer SX for small to mid-sized airports.
