TSA approves Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 145180-2is for air cargo screening
Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 145180-2is has been formally approved for air cargo screening in the US after successfully completing stringent qualification testing by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration).
The HI-SCAN 145180-2is joins 20 other Smiths Detection inspection systems already approved and included in the ACSTL (TSA’s Air Cargo Screening Technology List).
Its dual-view X-ray inspection system and large tunnel helps cut cargo inspection times by allowing shippers to screen bulk items without the requirement of unpacking shipments, scanning individual boxes and then re-assembling them.
Able to screen objects up to 57” x 71” (145cm x 180cm), the HI-SCAN 145180-2is meets the maximum skid/pallet size allowed by TSA. Its dual-view capability also speeds throughput by providing the operator with two high-resolution adjoining images, eliminating the need to scan cargo twice.
Lance Roncalli, managing director of vice president of sales, Americas, Smiths Detection, said: “The HI-SCAN 145180-2is was designed to meet the ever-growing demands of air cargo screening. Its dual-view technology, large pallet screening capability and highly compact footprint offer customers outstanding value for cutting-edge threat detection while still supporting the smooth flow of air cargo.”
