  • Need for 24 hours 7 days a week support — worldwide

Checked baggage screening is a growing market as airport groups and regulators focus on combating sophisticated and emerging threats. In the U.S., the TSA screens 100% of checked baggage in commercial airports, and in the EU, many airports are moving forward with purchasing EU Standard 3 Explosives Detection Systems (EDS) ahead of the mandated September 2014 deadline. Checked baggage screening involves a combination of X-ray scanning and image analysis technologies, which examine checked baggage for potential threats and contraband like weapons, drugs and explosives. From small airports to large international hubs, implementing the right screening solution means understanding your environment – and what fits your needs best.

L-3 SDS has supplied airports from North America to Asia and everywhere in between, having installed close to 2000 in-line, automated, high-throughput checked baggage systems.

The TSA certified and EU Standard 3-approved MV3D® from L-3 is designed to meet the highest levels of detection performance. Its revolutionary design generates the throughput and image quality of previous EU Standard 2 systems while providing the detection performance required of EU Standard 3 systems, all at a very high level of reliability. This powerful combination delivers increased throughput while reducing capital investment, staffing and maintenance costs over the life of the system.

L-3 SDS offers customers the broadest range of TSA-certified and EU-approved EDS solutions for every throughput class, from its compact eXaminer® SX (360 bags per hour (BPH)) to the widely deployed eXaminer® 3DX (540 BPH) to the high-speed, dual-energy eXaminer® XLB (1,200 BPH). The MV3D enhances L-3's EDS lineup, enabling the company to offer a 1,800 BPH solution for airports requiring the highest level of throughput.
