The article reports that a new generation of explosive detection system (EDS) is being developed by Morpho Detection Inc. According to Morpho chief technology officer Cameron Ritchie, the new EDS that uses x-ray diffraction technology can identify more complex threat materials than what is currently used as of October 2013 based on computed tomograpy. Ritchie disclosed that the project is under a 10 million dollar contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
