Single Pose Advanced Imaging Scanners for Nigeria

OSI Systems : 25 February, 2010  (Application Story)
Advanced backscatter technology equipped single pose body scanners will provide Nigerian checkpoints with the ability to detect non-metallic threats
OSI Systems has announced that its Security division, Rapiscan Systems, has received a contract award from the Government of Nigeria for multiple Rapiscan Secure 1000 Single Pose Advanced Imaging Technology body scanners.

The awards follow the recent announcement by the Nigerian Federal Executive Council to deploy the Advanced Imaging Technology systems in wake of the recent terrorist incident on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on December 25, 2009. The systems are expected to be installed in all four of the country's international airports and to be used to screen passengers travelling to the US as well other countries.

OSI Systems Chairman and CEO, Deepak Chopra, stated: "We are pleased to be working closely with the Government of Nigeria to deploy the Rapiscan Secure 1000 Single Pose. We think that the Secure 1000 Single Pose is ideal for rapidly growing aviation markets such as Nigeria's. It is easy to operate and service. Its Backscatter technology provides significant detection benefits, while at the same time it offers the best passenger throughput of any available screening system."

The Secure 1000 Single Pose has been approved by the US Transportation Security Administration and is currently being deployed at airports in the US and the United Kingdom. The Secure 1000 Single Pose uses advanced Backscatter technology and proprietary image processing software to rapidly detect potential threats on passengers at aviation checkpoints. The Secure 1000 Single Pose is designed to help screeners detect potential threat objects concealed on passengers. Using Backscatter imaging technology and proprietary image processing software, the system offers advantages over alternatives such as metal detectors and hand searches, because it can rapidly help screeners comprehensively detect non-metallic threats and explosives, as well as metal objects. In addition, the system, which complies with all US government passenger privacy and safety requirements, is configured to improve overall checkpoint efficiency: to complete the scan, a passenger faces the Secure 1000 Single Pose while front and back scans are generated and within seconds, a computer-aided image is presented for inspection, thereby streamlining the screening process.
