The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has approved a $25 million contract with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), a science and engineering firm with a focus on national security, for the company to upgrade airport baggage screening devices.

SAIC is to upgrade 210 Reveal Imaging CT-80 systems to the next-generation CT-80DR, which features proprietary dual-energy computed tomography X-ray technology that provides enhanced detection and reduced false alarm rates at an economical price, the company says.

“We are pleased to continue to support TSA in enhancing aviation security through advanced technology deployment,” said Alex Preston, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. “As threats to aviation grow and evolve, we remain a committed partner with TSA in the inspection and detection of these threats and the protection of the aviation community.”
