Nice Côte d'Azur Airport in France Selects Morpho's CTX 9800 EDS for Hold Baggage Screening

High-speed explosives detection systems to enhance passenger checked baggage screening capabilities

PARIS -October 8, 2013 - Morpho (Safran), through its subsidiary Morpho Detection, Inc., today announced that Nice Côte d'Azur International Airport in Nice, France has purchased four high-speed CTX 9800 DSi™ explosives detection systems (EDS) to screen hold baggage.

As a result, the airport will become the first in the continental E.U. to screen all passenger checked baggage-referred to as Level 1 screening-with an advanced EDS. Under terms of the agreement, delivery of the systems will begin this year with all units scheduled to be online by early 2014.

"Morpho Detection commends Nice Côte d'Azur for being the first airport in the region to utilize an advanced EDS system at Level 1 to screen checked baggage and protect travelers," said Cyril Dujardin, president & CEO, Morpho Detection International, Inc. "Morpho Detection is committed to helping airports of all sizes enhance the accuracy and efficiency of their baggage screening programs through the deployment of advanced explosives detection capabilities."

Morpho Detection's CTX™ family of EDS use advanced Computed Tomography (CT) technology to screen checked baggage. Capable of screening more than 1,000 bags per hour (BPH), the high-speed CTX 9800 enhances operational efficiencies by screening bags faster and with fewer false alarms. The CTX 9800 is certified by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and approved by the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) as meeting E.U. Standard 3 requirements.

Morpho Detection's CT-based EDS systems are the most widely deployed in the world, with nearly 2,000 in service.
