Copenhagen, Paris the 8th of April 2016

Exruptive, Innospexion and MultiX are cooperating on a project to develop an innovative solution

for airport checkpoints that combines security with passenger facilitation. Exruptive, is

developing a sophisticated, next generation X-ray screening technology and combining their

extensive knowledge and insights of passenger flows and processes, novel communication

platforms and business intelligence solutions. The solution will offer:

1) A secure checkpoint system with improved passenger facilitation and higher

throughput, reducing or even eliminating waiting time and passenger stress through the

security process;

2) Highly valuable, hitherto unavailable real time business and operational data to

airport retailers and operators;

3) A CAPEX light, full service business model that significantly reduces the risk for airport

decision makers.

Exruptive’s ambition is to become the preferred technology and service partner to customers in

the airport industry based on a unique and sustainable competitive position. For this innovative

project, Exruptive has selected:

1)Innospexion to design, industrialize and build up the complete x-ray scanner

2)MultiX for its new generation of x-ray multi energy spectrometric detectors. MultiX

and its ME100 detector have been identified by key government administrations as the

solution for the next generation of security systems for airports and critical infrastructure


Exruptive targets their solution to be ready for airports from 2017.

About MultiX

MultiX supplies x-ray system manufacturers with advanced multi energy x-ray detector

technology allowing OEMs to significantly reduce the false alarm rate of baggage screening

systems for airports and critical infrastructure. Current x-ray detectors such as scintillators only

integrate the deposited energy of the interacting photons (producing a ‘greyscale’ image),

whereas a semi-conductor technology as utilized by the MultiX ME100 can return both the

number and the energy distribution (‘spectrum’) of the x-rays. Therefore each pixel of the image

is associated not with one value but with a spectrum. This allows to compare the attenuation

data of each pixel or region of interest to a database or to calculate specific physical/chemical

information using dedicated algorithms. The new x-ray detectors are also applicable to nondestructive

testing (NDT) applications such as food processing, mining, recycling, waste product

processing, petroleum production, forest products, packaging and many others.
