CBP Orders Under Vehicle Inspection Systems from Viken

Viken Detection will install four Osprey-UVX under vehicle x-ray inspection systems at select U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) land points of entry. The Osprey-UVX, in conjunction with Viken’s handheld imagers, provides CBP and other security agencies with a non-intrusive inspection solution for high-throughput vehicle scanning at border, critical infrastructure and other security and military checkpoints.

The Osprey-UVX is a fixed “in-the-ground” system that provides real-time undercarriage and lower vehicle imaging for security officers. Passengers can safely stay in the vehicle while under vehicle images are created using Viken’s X-ray imaging technology. Both passenger and commercial versions are available, and mobile configurations are in the works.

CBP will use Viken’s Osprey-UVX for applications where they have previously relied solely on canine teams or camera based systems.

Viken is also launching its Osprey-EVX portal with demonstrations in the first half of 2020. The Osprey-EVX is a complementary solution to already installed Osprey-UVX units and is specifically targeted for locations with the highest traffic.
