PARIS -- November 18, 2013

Smiths Detection today launches the new ultra compact mobile X-Ray screening
solution, HCVM e35, for inspecting whole trucks, containers, and vehicles for
threats such as explosives, drugs and contraband.

The HCVM e35 series is particularly suited for small areas, where space is
limited, such as busy city environments, ports, borders, airports and high
profile sporting events where a mobile, high performing and cost-effective
solution is required. The flexible system is available in two variants;
offering mobile, pass-through and occupied vehicle scanning modes, for use in
any location.

The powerful 4MeV accelerator delivers X-Ray images through as much as 200mm
of steel, resulting in improved efficiency and reliable analysis results.

Ian May, Senior Vice President of Sales of Smiths Detection, said: “The HCVM
e35 series will allow our customers to scan vehicles and analyse high quality
image results anywhere, anytime.”

HCVM e35 will be launched at the MILIPOL 2013 exhibition in France, alongside
two other new products: the HCVL ultra compact mobile scanner and ACE-ID, a
handheld, non-contact explosives, narcotics and toxic chemical identifier.
