New Smiths Detection High-Speed Checked Baggage Scanner Incorporating Analogic CT Technology Receives European Standard 3 Approval

PEABODY, Mass., Sept. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security technology, today highlighted an announcement by its customer, Smiths Detection. Smiths Detection has announced that its new HI-SCAN 10080 XCT high-speed checked baggage scanner, which incorporates Analogic's advanced computed tomography (CT) imaging technology, has successfully gained European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Standard 3 approval. Standard 3 approval is mandatory for new aviation explosive detection system (EDS) applications beginning in September 2014. More information on the new HI-SCAN 10080 XCT system and the Smiths announcement can be found at www.smithsdetection.com/HI-SCAN_10080_XCT .

Jim Green, Analogic's president and CEO, commented, "We are pleased to see that Smiths Detection's new checked baggage system has achieved ECAC Standard 3 approval, the culmination of a multi-year development effort. In addition to new opportunities, Smiths has a strong incumbent position in airports worldwide that are expected to adopt systems meeting the more stringent Standard 3 performance requirements."

Capable of screening up to 1800 bags per hour in its approved configuration, the HI-SCAN 10080 XCT system offers a large 1 meter wide tunnel that meets the requirements of high speed in-line baggage handling systems, and allows rapid, efficient scanning of larger items.
