Leidos (NYSE:LDOS) has announced Edinburgh Airport Limited has awarded it a prime contract to upgrade the airport´s security tray return systems with antimicrobial tray technology, the company said.
The implementation of antimicrobial technology complements other measures Edinburgh Airport is taking to minimize the spread of bacteria in the airport. This is Leidos´ first order of the antimicrobial security tray technology introduced to mitigate the spread of bacteria from person-to-surface contact.
Under the contract, Leidos will provide new antimicrobial security trays that prevent reproduction of a broad spectrum of bacteria, including staphylococcus aureus (staph), E. coli, and antibiotic-resistant bacteria like MRSA and VRE, by 99.99%. The antimicrobial technology is built into the security tray during Leidos´ tray manufacturing process and continuously minimizes the presence of microbes throughout the security tray´s lifecycle. The antimicrobial security trays must be cleaned according to normal hygiene procedures, but the additive will not wash off or wear away.
These antimicrobial security trays are the latest offering in Leidos´ comprehensive security detection and automation solutions for aviation, ports, borders, and critical infrastructure.
Leidos is an information technology, engineering and science solutions and services leader working to solve the world´s toughest challenges in the defense, intelligence, homeland security, civil, and health markets.
