Smiths Detection, a global leader in providing government regulated systems to detect CBRNE threats, introduced its two next generation security systems in the Middle East; the IONSCAN™600 non-radioactive explosives detector and HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro large scale cargo inspection system.

The new solutions are aimed at equipping the regions’ airport establishments, ports and borders and other critical infrastructure facilities with the technology to detect modern day security threats. The IONSCAN™600 non-radioactive explosives trace detector (photo) has been developed for use in globalaviation and infrastructure security.Its small, portable design,combined with ease-of-use, reduces the cost and time of screening for a range of high-threat explo­sives.

Shan Hood, Vice President, Product and Technology, Smiths Detection said: “Accurate explosives detection is crucial for the international security market.  The new IONSCAN 600 fits into a layered security approach, delivering the detection capability needed, while helping security professionals minimize overhead through its user-friendly configuration, flexibility, and cost advantages.”

The technology behind the IONSCAN 600easily surpasses that of its previous version, the industry-leading IONSCAN 500DTused widely around the world -- from airport checkpoints to mail screening. Its breakthrough feature is a proprietary non-radioactive Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) source which eliminates the need for special licensing, handling or disposalrequirements.

The IONSCAN 600 also weighs just 23 pounds (10.4 kg) and is equipped with a built-in handle making it easy to carry. Its hot-swappable battery provides continued sampling and analysis capability, allowing it to be moved while still in use. Low cost, single-use test swabs dramatically reduce operator costs.

The HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro, an advanced dual-view X-ray system for screening large-scale freight, air cargo and mail.

HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro is an advanced version of the HI-SCAN 180180-2is which has become a market-leading solution over the past decade. The new ‘pro’ version meets the current global legal requirements for 100% inspection of air cargo on passenger flights. It also reflects the increasing need for X-ray units capable of screening LD3 containers as well as the largest package size accepted by the US Transportation Security Administration: 122 x 122 x 165 cm (W x L x H).

Thanks to its high penetration capabilities HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro can screen large containers with no need to disassemble consolidated freight into individual packages. This cuts re-inspection times considerably and ensures both high throughput and a fast, efficient inspection process.

Security standards are increased by the use of dual-view, with top and side views of the screened objects providing excellent image quality to allow precise image interpretation. The HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro offers a compact footprint which minimizes the required floor space and the associated lifecycle costs.
