With billions of pounds of cargo transported each day, the air cargo industry has a critical obligation to protect the public from security threats without hindering operational efficiency. For the identification of potential explosive threats, carriers have historically relied on X-ray screening and explosive trace detection, but these technologies have yielded costly inefficiencies. MSA has developed an innovative screening process to address the industry’s needs.
MSA’s patented Advanced Alarm Resolution addresses the Air Cargo Industry’s screening needs with best-in-class protection against explosive threats. The innovative sequence of three proven MSA explosive detection screening solutions blends state-of-the-art technology with uniquely-qualified subject matter expertise to provide unmatched value.
1. An MSA Canine Detection Team – comprised of an Explosive Detection Canine and Handler – delivers the first
layer in the patented process, conducting staggered screening of unit loading devices, pallets or other cargo
2. Upon canine indication of a potential threat, the identified package is extracted and X-rayed by an on-site
screener as the Canine Detection Team continues screening additional cargo.
3. Should additional interpretation be required, the on-site screener may transmit the suspicious X-ray image to
the MSA Emergency Operations Center, utilizing our proprietary SmartTech® technology for real-time
analysis and resolution by MSA’s FBI Trained bomb technicians.
MSA’s Patented Advanced Alarm Resolution is the most effective and efficient cargo and freight screening and resolution process available. It successfully supports the industry’s mission to augment safety and enhance screening efficiency by
