Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 145180-2is Approved as TSA Qualified Product for
Air Cargo Screening
Dual-View X-ray Provides High Quality Images and Cuts Inspection Times
EDGEWOOD, Md. -- June 4, 2013
Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 145180-2is has been formally approved for air cargo
screening in the U.S. 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 (Transportation Security
Administration’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
Able to screen objects up to 57” x 71” (145 cm x 180 cm), 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.
Ted Grant, Director of Sales, for 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.”
