Canadian Air Transport Security Authority’s Explosive Detection System Deployment Program

  • Responsible for assisting in the deployment of Explosive Detection System (EDS) technology at 90 airports across Canada
  • This $2B project included the preparation of necessary EDS deployment technical guidance materials, for use by all designated airports for incorporating EDS into the pre-board and hold-bag screening process
  • CATSA’s objectives were to hire, train, and manage security personnel in the operation of the EDS technology at Canada’s main airports, and to implement the deployment of this technology into the Canadian airport environment as quickly as possible.
  • MMM was subsequently retained to provide design services to accommodate the new EDS equipment at a number of the eligible airports.
