According to Mr. Ripp, the L-3 systems are scheduled to be operational in December 2005, enabling these six Mexican airports to meet the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) January 1, 2006 security-screening deadline. The ICAO has mandated that airports within its member countries perform 100-percent checked-baggage screening for explosives.

The L-3 eXaminer 3DX is certified by the TSA for aviation bag screening, and there are currently more than 600 eXaminer systems deployed worldwide. L-3 has recently introduced a number of industry-leading advancements to the eXaminer that set it apart from competing systems, including:

-- Unprecedented baggage throughput of 600 bags or more per hour when operating within a fully integrated baggage-handling system environment.

-- Industry-leading ability to accommodate long, oversized baggage up to 100 inches (2.54 meters) in length, such as skis or golf club bags.

-- Advanced 3-D imaging capability allowing operators to resolve alarmed bags more quickly, resulting in improved operational efficiencies.
