HCVG / X-Ray inspection system
Gantry inspection system
The HCVG X-ray system uses a single scan to screen whole trucks (cabin included), containers and vehicles for threats such as explosives, narcotics, weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), contraband, as well as manifest verification, reducing the need for manual inspection.
The system’s high-performance imaging capability provides the operator with detailed radioscopic images of container or vehicle and its contents, with organic and inorganic material discrimination and colourisation based on atomic number, allowing for rapid and reliable results in a single scan.
The HCVG viZual series systems use an accelerator delivering an interlaced energy from 4/6MeV, allowing for steel penetration ranging from 320mm (12.6in) to 400mm (15.7in) while providing a high throughput of up to 23 trucks per hour.
When equipped with the optional iCmore radioactivity capability, the HCVG simultaneously carries out both the X-ray inspection and analysis to detect the presence of radioactive gamma and/or neutron materials within the container or vehicle.
Thanks to the DaiSy graphic-user interface, operators can easily operate their tasks, such as the X-ray image analysis. An option is the use of a remote pool of operators to analyse the X-ray images, permitting the optimization of the team size.
The modular design of the HCVG provides the ability for the system to be relocated, adapting to the customer’s specific needs. The HCVG is designed for ease of operation, requiring a minimal footprint and external infrastructure while still integrating the most demanding international security-screening requirements.
The HCVG systems have proven to be an indispensable tool for Customs agencies and law enforcement authorities worldwide.
