OSI Systems, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, operates as a vertically integrated designer and manufacturer of specialized electronic systems and components for critical applications. The company sells its products and provides related services in diversified markets, including homeland security, healthcare, defense and aerospace. Divisions The company has three operating divisions: Security, providing security and inspection systems, turnkey security screening solutions and related services; Healthcare, providing patient monitoring, diagnostic cardiology, anesthesia delivery and ventilation systems, and defibrillators; and Optoelectronics and Manufacturing, providing specialized electronic components and electronic manufacturing services for the Security and Healthcare divisions, as well as to external original equipment manufacturer customers and end users for applications in the defense, aerospace, medical and industrial markets, among others. Products and Technology The company designs, develops, manufactures, and sells products ranging from security and inspection systems to patient monitoring, cardiology and anesthesia systems to discrete optoelectronic devices and value-added subsystems. Security and Inspection Systems The company designs, manufactures, and markets security and inspection systems globally to end users under the ‘Rapiscan Systems’ trade name. Rapiscan Systems products are used to inspect baggage, parcels, cargo, people, vehicles and other objects for weapons, explosives, drugs, radioactive and nuclear materials and other contraband. Rapiscan Systems products fall into various categories: baggage and parcel inspection; cargo and vehicle inspection; hold (checked) baggage screening; people screening; radiation detection; and explosive and narcotics trace detection. The company also offers turnkey security screening services under the ‘S2’ trade name, including the staffing and operation of security screening checkpoints. The company’s security and inspection systems include dual-energy X-ray technology with computer software enhanced imaging technology to facilitate the detection of materials, such as explosives, weapons, narcotics, bulk currency or other contraband. While all X-ray systems produce a two-dimensional image of the contents of the inspected object, the dual-energy X-ray systems also measure the X-ray absorption of the inspected object's contents at two X-ray energies to determine the atomic number, mass and other characteristics of the object's contents. The various organic and inorganic substances in the inspected object appear to operators of the inspection systems in various colors, and this visual information could be used to identify and differentiate the inspected materials. In addition, the company offers dual-view X-ray screening systems, available on various systems that allow operators to examine objects from two orthogonal positions simultaneously, thereby reducing the need for re-scanning of objects and improving the operator's ability to detect threats effectively. The company’s baggage and parcel inspection, cargo and vehicle inspection and hold (checked) baggage screening inspection systems range in size from compact mobile systems to large systems comprising entire buildings in which trucks, shipping containers or pallets are inspected. Its inspection systems are also designed to be upgradeable to respond to new customer requirements as they emerge or change. The company’s cargo and vehicle inspection applications, in which occupied vehicles, cars, trucks, shipping containers, pallets and other large objects can be inspected, are designed in various configurations, including fixed-site, gantry, relocatable, portal and mobile systems. These products are primarily used to verify the contents of cars, trucks or cargo containers and to detect the presence of contraband, including narcotics, weapons, explosives, radioactive and nuclear materials and other smuggled items. Majority of the company’s cargo and vehicle inspection systems are based on high energy X-ray technology, in conjunction with digital imaging equipment, to non-intrusively inspe
