Rapiscan Systems Receives $27 Million RTT Hold Baggage Screening Contract at Rome Airport
Rapiscan Systems, Inc., a global supplier of security inspection systems, has announced that the company has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $27 million to provide multiple units of the RTT® 110 (Real Time Tomography) explosives detection system (EDS) to Leonardo da Vinci – Fiumicino Airport. The RTT's unique design enables baggage to be screened at high speed, allowing the RTT to be installed "in-line" within an airport's existing baggage handling network without slowing that system down.
Deepak Chopra, CEO of OSI Systems, Rapiscan’s parent company, commented: "We are pleased with the selection of Rapiscan's RTT high-speed, checked-baggage screening solution for use at such a prestigious airport. We believe that RTT offers significant value to European and other international airports as they upgrade their screening infrastructure to handle both passenger growth and compliance with the EU's standard 3 regulatory requirements."
