OSI Systems’ CT Inspection System Selected for Biosecurity Risk Detection in Australia
OSI Systems, Inc. (the “Company” or “OSI Systems”) (NASDAQ: OSIS) today announced that its Rapiscan RTT® 110 CT inspection system has recently been selected by the Australian government to identify contraband biosecurity materials entering the country inside passenger baggage, mail, and cargo. The Australian government is expected to implement the Company’s detection technology as part of its security initiative to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of biosecurity operations both prior to and at the border.
“Since its initial introduction to the market, the RTT 110 has been successful in detecting explosives, weapons, and contraband at airports around the world,” said OSI Systems’ Chairman and CEO, Deepak Chopra. “This is the first time that the system will be used for biosecurity detection, and we are incredibly excited to demonstrate the versatility and efficiency of this unique solution as part of a comprehensive security infrastructure.”
“Biosecurity screening provides critical protection for Australia’s $60 billion agricultural industries and the health of our communities, environment, and the national economy,” said The Hon. David Littleproud, Australian Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources. “New technology like the RTT 110 from Rapiscan will be an integral part of preserving our unique ecosystem and creating a more seamless experience at the border.”
