Canada : Smiths Detection delivers advanced explosive trace detection systems in CANADA.

Smiths Detection has started delivery of over 100 advanced explosive trace detection systems to the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority. The IONSCAN 500DT is a device made by Smiths to detect explosives. It is a desktop device. It will be used, in conjunction with X-ray scanners, for carry-on luggage at Canadian airports. The IONSCAN 500DT works by analyzing swab samples of surfaces. The device can detect both trace explosives and narcotics.

More than 24,000 systems have already been sold by Smiths. They are being used in a variety of locations such as corrections facilities, court security checks, aviation security and force protection.

The IONSCAN 500DT, developed and manufactured in Canada, remains one of the most widely deployed trace solutions at airports around the world, Smiths Vice President of Sales Rene Shink said. CATSA is a valued and long-standing customer and we are delighted that our technology continues to support their layered security requirements.
