TSA buys two ‘reduced size' explosive detection systems from Morpho Detection

TSA has announced that it will make a sole source award to Morpho Detection Inc., of Newark, CA, to supply two “reduced size standalone” explosive detection systems (RSEDS). One of the units will be for first article testing and the other will be the company’s first production unit, said a TSA award notice issued on November 6.

“This process of ordering the first article unit and unit one of the RSEDS CLIN is exactly the same process that was used to fulfill the minimum requirement of the other two multiple-award IDIQ contract holders,” explained the agency.

TSA has established a Qualified Products List (QPL) that includes all contractors’ systems that successfully met the agency’s requirements. “Only vendors on the QPL are eligible for contract awards,” the notice adds.

TSA did not specify the dollar mount for this award to Morpho Detection, but it appears to be somewhere between $650,000 and $5 million, given the signatures of agency officials that have been included on the “Justification for Fair Opportunity Exception” document issued by TSA. The document also did not specify the precise model of the EDS being acquired from Morpho Detection.
