3DX-Ray has announced the sale of a ThreatScan-LS1 flat screen scanner to an unidentified European counter-terrorist unit.
The system’s flexibility accelerates the on-site examination and assessment of threats and suspicious objects, such as bags, laptops, furniture by counter-terror operatives. It further allows them to locate and identify hidden cameras and covert surveillance equipment. Each system consists of a portable X-ray generator, a detection panel and an operator workstation running the company’s image processing software, together with a customer-specific range of ancillary equipment.
ThreatScan is lightweight, extremely thin, has a large imaging area of 600x460mm, enabling bags and objects to be examined in a single scan. It can penetrate up to 34mm steel at 120kV, while producing high quality, sub-millimetre resolution images. ThreatScan can be used to inspect suspect bags and packages in mass transit areas, such as rail and bus stations, shopping malls, airports, stadia and sports arenas. It is also best suited for general security inspection by first responders such as police, military and private or government security agencies.
