WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - November 25, 2014) - Morpho (Safran), through its subsidiary Morpho Detection, today announced the launch of its next-generation desktop explosives trace detector (ETD), Itemiser® 4DX.
Built on the industry-leading Itemiser® ETD platform, Itemiser 4DX delivers advanced explosives detection and screening capabilities powered by a non-radioactive ITMS® (Ion Trap Mobility Spectrometer) source. Optimized for ease-of-use and mobility, Itemiser 4DX eliminates the administrative, regulatory, storage and shipping requirements associated with a radiation-emitting trace detection source.
"The result of almost 15 years of Itemiser systems in operation, Itemiser 4DX delivers on Morpho's commitment to provide our customers advanced explosives detection capabilities while streamlining burdensome deployment and operational procedures," said Karen Bomba, president and CEO, Morpho Detection. "Combined with a global service footprint and rapid response capabilities, Morpho offers a comprehensive, unmatched end-to-end solution."
A lightweight, portable desktop system, Itemiser 4DX utilizes a long-lasting battery to enable rapid deployment between locations without powering down. By leveraging long-life consumables and internal calibration, Itemiser 4DX seeks to minimize operational costs for airports and air cargo facilities, law enforcement agencies and government and critical infrastructure installations.
