Rapiscan’s RTT110 Achieves TSA ACSTL Approval and ECAC Standard 3.1

Rapiscan Systems RTT®110 is the first high-speed Computed Tomography Explosive Detection System (EDS) to be approved on TSA’s Air Cargo Screening Technology List (ACSTL). This was achieved last month after a thorough testing process with the TSA, and means that the RTT®110 will now undergo further field test activities, which it must pass before it can be formally qualified. By February 2021, all cargo shipments leaving, entering or travelling within the USA must be screened by a product included on the ACSTL.

The RTT®110 has a belt speed of 0.5m/s and produces high-resolution full volumetric 3D images. Rapiscan’s RTT110 has been tested by the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) and achieved the ECAC 3.1 performance standard. This is currently the highest testing standard used by ECAC for EDS systems in Europe.
