Hamburg, February 22, 2013

During an official visit to Germany, French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault visited the R&D Center of Morpho (Safran) in Hamburg dedicated to advanced X-ray diffraction (XRD) explosives detection in passenger baggage.

Accompanied by Safran Chairman and CEO Jean-Paul Herteman and Morpho Chairman and CEO Jean-Paul Jainsky, the Prime Minister viewed a demonstration of XDi™, Morpho's breakthrough airport checkpoint solution which allows passengers to take liquids through checkpoints and have them screened without divestiture. Based on advanced XRD technology, XDiwill give global regulators, airport operators and security directors the ability to lift current liquids restrictions, while bringing new levels of security and throughput to the checkpoint screening process. In support of XDi, Morpho is partnering with French research laboratory CEA-LETIto develop this unique system's X-ray diffraction sensors.

"We are proud to host Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault at our Hamburg R&D center," said Jean-Paul Herteman. "The XDi system being jointly developed by our German and French teams here will help solve a major security challenge for airports, while improving the passenger experience by reducing long checkpoint lines and liquids restrictions. This facility perfectly illustrates how technological innovation and scientific collaboration in Europe can create value and industrial jobs while facilitating the daily lives of users."

By processing passenger carry-on baggage quicker and with fewer false alarms, airlines benefit from XDi's ability to speed passengers through checkpoints and to their departure gates. Morpho's XDiwill be available for commercial demonstrations in 2014, with deployment anticipated in 2015, to meet future International Security Regulations for Air Transport.

To maintain its technological leadership, Safran places innovation at the heart of its strategy, investing more than 1.6 billion euros in R&D.
