OSI Systems, Inc. today announced that its security division, Rapiscan Systems, has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $8 million from a major international airport to provide multiple units of Rapiscan Systems' RTT 110 (Real Time Tomography) explosives detection system (EDS).
Deepak Chopra, OSI Systems CEO, commented: "We are proud of our success with RTT EDS technology and its rapid acceptance in the marketplace. We look forward to serving this airport customer with a system enabling faster throughput and advanced threat detection compared to their existing infrastructure."
