ThreatScan

Penetrates 30 mm steel – high image quality

The new, compact X-ray system penetrates suspicious objects in closed containers, such as parcels, suitcases, rucksacks, etc. The high image quality in sub-millimeter resolution enables fast, accurate decisions.


ThreatScan is a portable, battery powered X-ray generator with a very slim digital detector. The system was developed in cooperation with First responders and EOD teams. In a few easy steps it is ready to use. The lightweight, rugged generator continuously produces X-radiation to gain constant results. The 120 keV X-ray tube can penetrate up to 30 mm steel. Depending on operational circumstances, it can be combined with either the extra-large detector LS1 or the slightly smaller LS3. The scan is triggered by a laptop/tablet.

The ThreatSpect software is easy and intuitive to use. It has a number of smart image editing and analysis features such as zoom, DeepFocus (detail sharpness), 3D Emboss, materials discrimination, measurement and annotation. Coupled with the excellent image quality, it enables the operator to interpret the images quickly and accurately.

Advantages:

  • High penetration depth
  • Image quality with sub-millimeter resolution
  • Large area, thin detector panel
  • Scan from 3 mm above the ground
  • Recordings in real time
  • Simple, fast setting-up, easy handling
  • Powerful image processing and analysis software

Areas of application

The ThreatScan is suitable for inspecting luggage, consignments, barrels, vehicles, etc. to detect weapons, drugs or explosives.

  • Customs inspections
  • Vehicle inspections
  • Police controls
  • Disarmament and ordnance clearance services
