Sagem Securite forms Morpho Detection

Sagem Securite, part of the Safran Group, has formally announced the creation of Morpho Detection, a developer of explosives detection systems. The formation of the new operating unit is the result of a partnership between Sagem Securite and GE Homeland Protection, 81 percent of which was recently acquired by Safran.

According to Jean-Paul Jainsky, chairman and CEO of Sagem Sécurité, the company is now able to offer a complete end-to-end solution to customs agencies.

“Thanks to this recent acquisition, Sagem Sécurité immediately spreads its sphere of operation in the border control market. Sagem Sécurité is now capable of proposing one end to end solution to fit all requirements, from identification of people to the scanning of goods prior to traveling. Moving forward we will contribute to the security of countries, airports and people,” he said in a prepared statement.
