Smiths Detection System Qualifies For Updated TSA List

The dual-view HI-SCAN 6040-2is X-ray inspection system from Smiths Detection, Inc. (SDI) has become its latest system to be accepted into the “Qualified” section of the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Air Cargo Screening Technology List (ACSTL).

The HI-SCAN 6040-2is is an advanced, dual-view X-ray inspection system which uses multiple views and sophisticated algorithms to indicate items that might be threats. It offers ACSTL “Category A” screening for smaller items, items that will later be in pallets, or break bulk cargo. It is designed to penetrate 35mm steel and is suitable for use in government buildings, hotels and other infrastructures where security checkpoints are required. It also has been approved for EU Standard 3 Type C (Liquid Explosive Detection System) use in airport checkpoints across Europe.

One of the biggest changes in the 2015 update to the ACSTL was the requirement that new X-ray inspection purchases must be dual-view. SDI currently has one of the largest selections of dual-view X-ray screening equipment on the qualified section of the ACSTL. Customers can now select from one of twelve SDI dual-view systems for their cargo screening applications to meet the TSA air cargo screening requirements.

Smiths Detection last month added a new system to its HI-SCAN range, the 6040C, a compact checkpoint scanner designed specifically to screen hand-carried items in the entrance areas of public buildings.

HI-SCAN 6040C has been designed to meet all requirements for the screening of bags, packages and other objects for prohibited or dangerous items in buildings such as correctional facilities, courthouses, embassies, banks and hotels. Its electronics and software can be upgraded to meet future security requirements and scan for new or specific threats.
