MSA’s Bomb-Sniffing Dogs Deliver Effective Air Cargo Screening Solutions

We Are the 1st and Only TSA certified CCSF-K9 and DHS SAFETY Act Certified Program Working with the Air Cargo Industry

The most effective and efficient way to screen cargo for explosives is with an MSA Windsor Team. Whether it’s a ULD, Cookie Sheet, Homogenized Pallet, or Loose or Bagged Cargo, MSA bomb-sniffing dogs and their dedicated handler quickly assess even the largest of cargo areas for potential explosive threats – without disrupting business operations. 


A Fast, Unobtrusive Screening Solution

MSA Explosive Detection Canine teams have changed the way leading carriers screen packages – increasing safety, improving efficiencies and lowering costs. It once took 6 hours for a single ULD to be X-ray screened for explosive threats. A Windsor Team sweeps that same area in just minutes.
