L3 Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:LLL)
Historical Stock Chart
1 Year : From Oct 2017 to Oct 2018
L3 Technologies (NYSE:LLL) announced today that its ClearScan®
automated explosives detection system for carry-on baggage is the first
to pass the new European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC-EU) C3 Standard
under ECAC’s testing program. This standard enables passengers to keep
electronics and liquids in their carry-on bags, expediting checkpoint
traffic with an enhanced level of security screening.
This follows L3’s June 2017 achievement of the C2 Standard, which allows
electronic devices, but not liquids, to stay in carry-on bags. In the
United States, ClearScan also passed the Transportation Security
Administration (TSA) certification in April 2017.
“L3 is committed to providing the most reliable and innovative screening
systems that combine safety and convenience for air passengers
worldwide,” said Christopher E. Kubasik, L3’s President and Chief
Operating Officer. “We are proud to be the first company to pass the
enhanced C3 detection standard with our ClearScan system as we continue
to improve our technologies for the benefit of our customers. Our
strategy is to remain closely aligned with the evolving needs of the
traveling public to ensure a safe and improved experience at airports
across the globe.”
Mr. Kubasik added that a major European airport has placed an order for
25 ClearScan systems, with the potential for up to 30 additional units.
ClearScan has proved its superior performance with the largest
operational deployment of such systems across the world market, having
scanned more than two million bags to date. The state-of-the-art
computed tomography (CT) system offers the smallest footprint of any
available checkpoint CT device, making it easy to integrate into
existing checkpoints. As new threats emerge, the ClearScan upgradable
software platform can readily incorporate new algorithms.
