Drive-through X-Ray order for cargo inspection

RapiScan Systems : 29 January, 2009  (Application Story)
High energy X-ray and gamma ray detection systems from Rapiscan to be used in cargo inspection service
Rapiscan Systems has recently received contracts totaling approximately $17 million from two undisclosed customers for cargo and vehicle inspection screening systems. The awards are for the Company's Rapiscan Eagle Portal high-energy X-ray and Rapiscan GaRDS (Gamma Ray Detection System) cargo inspection systems.

The systems are part of the Company's Cargo and Vehicle Inspection line, which has experienced significant global growth and market acceptance. Demand for these products is being driven by a combination of factors, including new regulatory screening mandates, the need to better protect borders and enforcing customs regulations worldwide.

Rapiscan Systems President, Ajay Mehra, stated, "These most recent contract awards are an important validation of our strategy to be a leading provider of cargo inspection systems on a worldwide basis by providing end-to-end solutions built around our customers' requirements, using a range of technologies, and delivered with a high level of in-country support and expertise." Mehra continued, "We greatly appreciate the support these international customers have shown us in deciding to use our Rapiscan Eagle and Rapiscan GaRDS products to meet their security needs."

The Rapiscan Eagle Portal is a drive-through X-ray imaging system capable of penetrating dense cargo at increased inspection rates without the impeding the flow of commerce. The system is part of Rapiscan's Eagle® product line of High Energy X-ray Cargo inspection systems that features mobile, gantry, portal and fixed deployment configurations. The products have been installed internationally for use by military, customs and border protection agencies.
