    Automated Credential Authentication Improves Convenience and Security August 5, 2014, Billerica, Mass. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has awarded MorphoTrust USA (Safran) a contract to provide Credential Authentication Technology (E-CAT) for U.S. airports. The $85 million contract ceiling covers seven years and will allow TSA travel document checkers to scan passenger credentials at the checkpoint versus the current visual inspection. MorphoTrust E-CAT automatically checks multiple security features embedded in a passenger’s identification document to ensure it has not been altered or is counterfeit. Once the E-CAT is connected to TSA’s network, this information will simultaneously be verified against the passenger boarding information from Secure Flight, TSA’s watchlist matching system. MorphoTrust has provided identity solutions and services to the TSA for more than eight years. The company is the prime contractor for TSA’s Universal Enrollment Services (UES) and TSA Pre✓™. UES has successfully consolidated the Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) and Hazardous Materials Endorsement Threat Assessment Program into a single service with convenient enrollment locations nationwide. Approximately 300 of the 1,100 IdentoGO® Centers by MorphoTrust provide enrollment services for UES, which includes live scan fingerprinting and the secure transmission of data to TSA. MorphoTrust is also a TSA-approved provider of Designated Aviation Channeling services, which supports the screening of airport employees. “MorphoTrust E-CAT is the culmination of many years of work to address airport security requirements following the 9/11 tragedy, while simplifying travel for American citizens,” MorphoTrust CEO Bob Eckel said. “It is also just the beginning of our vision for what’s possible in air travel, creating a future in which passengers can move easily and securely from the curb to the gate without boarding passes or security lines.” *** About MorphoTrust® USA MorphoTrust USA (Safran) is “The Identity Company,” providing market-leading solutions and services to state and federal agencies as well as businesses that simplify, protect and secure the lives of Americans. The company’s offerings help ensure individuals are who they claim to be through the use of document authentication, data verification and biometric identification (face, fingerprints, iris and skin). Forty-two of 50 states use MorphoTrust solutions to produce 80% of the U.S. driver licenses and IDs – the documents citizens rely on to exercise their civil rights, gain access to benefits and services, and ensure trusted transactions while reducing fraud and enhancing national security. Other programs include U.S. passports and passport cards, as well as solutions for border management, public safety, banking and travel. MorphoTrust serves consumers through a nationwide network of 1100 IdentoGO® Centers, delivering fingerprinting and other identity-related services to over 3 million customers annually.

    08.01.2014 | Download as PDF | Entry into service of the Arriel 2E on the first EC145 T2 for DRF Luftrettung

    Bordes, August 1st, 2014 German air rescue service DRF Luftrettung has taken delivery of the first of 20 EC145 T2 from Airbus Helicopters in Donauwoerth. This new version of the EC145, certified in April 2014, is powered by the latest member of the Arriel family, the Arriel 2E. Certified in January 2013 by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Arriel 2E is an 894 shp turboshaft that delivers over 20 per cent more power than the Arriel 1E2 fitted to the original EC145. The 2E benefits from a new axial compressor and new turbine blades, which improve performance and lower the fuel consumption of a proven design. Enhanced Safety. A new-generation dual-channel FADEC reduces pilot workload and features a 30-minute emergency power rating. A new Engine Data Recorder further shifts the emphasis from traditional to preventive maintenance. Such innovations, with enhanced troubleshooting and monitoring tools, also drastically reduce unscheduled removals and significantly improve availability. Reliability. The increased power output of the 2E, coupled with its new-design components, ensures that the Arriel remains the most reliable engine in its class. Since 1977, Turbomeca has produced over 11,000 Arriel engines in 28 variants. These have recorded 40 million flying hours while in service with 1,300 customers in 110 countries. Reduced cost. A modular design, combined with a higher TBO (Time Between Overhaul) of 4,000 hours at entry into service, then up to 6,000 hours at maturity, simplifies maintenance and reduces direct maintenance costs by some ten per cent. Hamburg-based Turbomeca Germany GmbH will provide support and maintenance to DRF Luftrettung engines. Founded in 1991, Turbomeca Germany employs 46 persons and provides 24/7 support for 250 customers in 29 countries (located in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Russia). *** Turbomeca (Safran) is the leading helicopter engine manufacturer, and has produced 70,000 turbines based on its own designs since the company was founded. Offering the widest range of engines in the world and dedicated to 2,500 customers in 155 countries, Turbomeca provides a proximity service thanks to its 16 sites, 30 proximity maintenance centers, 18 Repair & Overhaul Centers, and 90 Field representatives and Field technicians.
