X-Ray System Meets Air Cargo Screening Requirements of the TSA

Smiths Detection : 15 March, 2010  (New Product)
HI-SCAN X-ray inspection system for the scanning of palletised loads has been added to the TSA's Air Cargo Screening Qualified Technology List, providing another screening option for cargo companies and freight forwarders
Smiths Detection announces that its HI-SCAN 130130T-2is X-ray inspection system has been added to the Air Cargo Screening Qualified Technology List (ACSQTL) by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The system, Smiths Detection's sixth addition to the list, provides operators with two views of all scanned items enabling rapid and accurate threat detection.

Mark Laustra, Vice President of Homeland Security, Smiths Detection, said: "We are pleased to have an additional X-ray system included on TSA's approved list, a testament to our success in helping our customers prepare for August's 100 percent screening mandate deadline."

The HI-SCAN 130130T-2is, a mid-sized X-ray screener that can handle larger shipments, features a low conveyor enabling simple forklift operations to ease screening. Its larger tunnel opening can handle a wide variety of shipment sizes within a smaller overall footprint.

Laustra added, "Now is the time for air carriers and freight forwarders to use the many solutions available for them to meet TSA's screening mandate without adversely affecting their business."

Smiths Detection's other five systems included on TSA's ACSQTL include: HI-SCAN 6040aTiX, HI-SCAN 100100T-2is, HI-SCAN 10080 EDtS, HI-SCAN 10080 EDX-2is and HI-SCAN 180180-2is. All provide operators with dual views of screened cargo in a single scan, thus reducing the overall time required for screening.

In order to increase the speed of commerce, other advanced technologies like Smiths Detection's explosives trace detectors are currently included on TSA's Candidate Technology List for air cargo screening. These systems include the IONSCAN 500DT, IONSCAN 400B and SABRE 4000 explosives trace detectors.
