The IONSCAN 600 has become the first explosives trace detector to pass the latest stringent Transportation Security Administration (TSA) certification tests in the United States, manufacturer Smiths Detection announced on 16 November.

The TSA updated its Air Cargo Screening Technology List (ACSTL) requirements in 2016, to require improved explosives detection and software functionality.

Smiths Detection put IONSCAN 600 forward for ACSTL tests in April; the next step is evaluation in a live airport checkpoint environment “in the near future”, the company stated.
