Analogic's COBRA Checkpoint CT System Achieves Type D/D+ Standard 2, The Highest EU Detection Standard, Allowing Liquids And Laptops To Remain In Carry-On Baggage

PEABODY, Mass., March 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security technology, today announced that its COBRA® checkpoint computed tomography (CT) system is the first system to achieve European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Type-D and D+ Standard-2 approval. Standard 2 is the highest European performance standard for threat detection. The COBRA successfully met Standard-2 in Type-D operations, where liquids, aerosols and gels (LAGs) remain inside passenger carry-on bags, and Type D+ operations, where LAGs and complex electronics, such as laptops, remain inside passenger carry-on bags.

Jim Green, Analogic's president and CEO, commented, "Allowing liquid and laptops to stay in the bag, Analogic's CT technology advances security effectiveness and resolves major inconveniences for the traveling public. We expect to prove our advanced CT detection technology provides the best threat detection for carry-on baggage at the checkpoint and significantly improves passenger throughput, all while lowering the overall cost of ownership for the airport."

Eric Zanin, vice president and general manager, Security Systems Business, added, "The COBRA system is a dramatic improvement in detection capability for the checkpoint. Achieving Standard-2 in Type D and D+ operations is a testament to our industry-leading technology and engineering capability."

Built on Analogic's proprietary CT technology, the COBRA is designed to drive up to 30% higher baggage throughput and lower false-alarm rates compared to conventional X-ray scanners. The COBRA's superior performance enables airports to reduce costs by using fewer checkpoint lanes, therefore reducing lifecycle costs (i.e., operating and commissioning). Analogic's CT technology meets the highest TSA and ECAC standards for threat detection. Over the past fifteen years, Analogic has developed and deployed more than 1,100 state-of-the-art threat-detection systems and subsystems for use in airports around the world. Analogic provides innovative solutions for a wide spectrum of customers ranging from small regional airports to large international hubs.
