Detection Technology has unveiled the industry’s first off-the-shelf detector subsystem for security computed tomography (CT) applications. The plug-and-play-type subsystem, branded as Aurora CT, includes ready-made multi-slice detector boards and a data acquisition system. Aurora CT speeds up time-to-market, decreases total costs of X-ray imaging systems and meets security equipment standards in aviation. The three-sided tileable detector modules easily scale from 16-slice up to 64-slice system configurations to cover a wide range of set-ups, from entry-level checkpoint carry-on baggage scanners to large hold baggage CT scanners. In addition, air cargo and other critical logistics applications can be boosted with the Aurora CT subsystem. The design also allows room for updates to meet future security standards.
