3D new radiation detection technology
Passport Systems, one of the world’s leading developers of radiation detection technology, now provides “cutting-edge” technology that will scan cargo arriving at the Port of Boston and will also be available to make other seaports around the world safer.
The SmartScan 3D Automated Cargo Inspection System will enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of cargo inspections. The system integrates proprietary detection technologies with conventional high-resolution imaging and intelligent passive radiation detection to automatically clear or detect threat materials in minutes or even seconds. This state of the art cargo scanner can automatically detect nuclear material, explosives, drugs, and other contraband, supplying authorities with three-dimensional images capable of displaying the location of contraband.
SmartScan 3D offers significant increases in capability over existing deployed technologies for automated, rapid clearing of non-threat cargo/vehicles, the detection of threats in complex cargo, manifest verification and/or investigation, and the detection of heavily shielded nuclear material.
It integrates Passport’s proprietary EZ-3D anomaly detection, PNPF, and NRF technologies with conventional high-resolution imaging and intelligent passive radiation detection to automatically clear or detect threat objects in primary scan mode in less than two minutes.
In secondary scan, or threat resolution mode, the system differentiates specific elements and performs precise material identification to rapidly clear or confirm suspected threats or manifest anomalies, typically in less than five minutes.
The scanner supports multiple operational configurations, with the capability to be used as either as a primary scanner with integrated alarm resolution, or in secondary mode to resolve suspicious or difficult cargos.
