“The threat of explosives on the aviation industry is still imminent and even growing given the global geo-political instabilities throughout this challenging COVID-19 year” stated Doron Shalom, CEO of MS Tech. “Moreover, with the increase in air cargo shipments since COVID-19 started; airlines, air cargo and airports are facing an unprecedented volume of parcels, boxes, envelopes as well as personnel and vehicles entering their cargo screening facilities.”

 

The DUOSCAN is a trace and vapor detection system that detects and identifies minute quantities of narcotics and explosives, as well as improvised explosives, such as TATP and HMTD within seconds. It is designed to be extremely flexible for use in the airport passenger checkpoints and cargo screening environments and is fully operational on DC power as well as on rechargeable batteries to ensure continuous use.

 

“This latest installation is another successful case study for the DUOSCAN in the aviation and air cargo screening industry", stated Doron Shalom. “That level of product loyalty speaks volumes about the performance and reliability of our nanotechnology sensors and our products’ long-term performance and reliability in Africa and globally”. “The installation project was held with the partnership of a dedicated local technical team. With this outstanding collaboration, we are capable of delivering innovative nanosensors, high-performance detection systems combined with operational training programs, service and maintenance agreements to our international customers. We anticipate continued growth across a range of countries across Africa”, added Doron Shalom, CEO of MS Tech.
