X-ray scanning systems
With one of the most advanced x-ray scanning systems available, all Rapiscan equipment benefits from dual-view technology, automated detection and superior, high-definition imaging.
Our portfolio ranges from portable systems small enough to fit through standard doorways to powerful dual view systems designed to inspect freight pallet cargo and large parcels. The Windows-based operating system can differentiate between organic and inorganic material, and has advanced explosives and liquid threat detection.
Real-time tomography liquid-explosive detectors
Rapiscan has developed a real-time tomography (RTT) system, a revolutionary liquid explosive detection technology, with the superior detection capability of computerised tomography but the same throughput levels you can expect from X-rays: up to 1,800 bags per hour. Developed, designed and manufactured in the UK, the machine has no moving parts, which contributes to a lower overall cost of maintenance.
