Aviation grade X-ray detection system approved by UK DfT

RapiScan Systems : 29 September, 2008  (New Product)
X-Ray inspection system designed specifically for use in the public aviation sector has gained approval for use in the UK by the Department for Transport
Rapiscan Systems has received approval for use from the United Kingdom's Department for Transport (DfT) for its Rapiscan 620DV (Dual View) X-ray system - one of only two checkpoint solutions worldwide to have achieved this status.

The Rapiscan 620DV system is a checkpoint screening solution designed specifically to detect aviation-based threats while improving checkpoint operations. The unit represents one of the most advanced checkpoint inspection systems in the world with multiple views and dual energy X-ray sources for material discrimination. With these varying angles, screeners can more readily identify potential threat objects - leading to increased throughput, fewer delays and less hassle during the passenger screening process.

Rapiscan Systems President, Ajay Mehra, stated, "The DfT is recognized as one of the world's leading regulatory agencies, so we are particularly pleased that it has approved the Rapiscan 620DV for use at aviation checkpoints in the United Kingdom. We believe that the Rapiscan 620DV offers an unsurpassed combination of threat detection and lower total cost of ownership, while at the same time meeting one of the world's most stringent regulatory standards."
