3DX-Ray has announced a contract for the supply of three ThreatScan-LSC Portable X-ray Scanning Systems to the Royal Air Force (RAF). This is 3DX-Ray’s first contract with the RAF and the ThreatScan-LSC’s will replace existing systems.
The systems are designed specifically for military and first responder EOD and Counter-IED teams and are in use throughout the world. The ThreatScan-LSC is a combination package including a large format ThreatScan-LS1 panel, a compact ThreatScan-LS3 panel with back-pack, tablet PC imaging station and the I-Gen generator for rapid field deployment.
The large 600mm x 460mm imaging area of the LS1 panel enables the operator to scan typical bags and packages in a single scan.
The smaller 305mm x 256mm LS3 panel enables the operator to access and scan objects within confined areas, whilst still being able to scan suspect items in a single scan.These systems can penetrate up to 34mm steel at 120kV while producing high quality, sub-millimeter resolution images, the company says.
The tablet PC imaging station includes 3DX-Ray’s market-leading image processing software with a range of sophisticated image processing functions; including materials discrimination, pan, zoom, DeepFocus, 3D Emboss, measurement and annotation, enabling the operator to interpret the image quickly and accurately. And finally, the I-Gen generator, a portable and robust x-ray generator.
