Smiths Detection – a global company in threat detection and security screening technologies – has recently announced that the company’s dual-view air cargo scanner, the HI-SCAN 145180-2is pro, has been added onto the Qualified section of the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Air Cargo Screening Technology List (ACSTL).
The ACSTL serves as TSA’s official guide for regulated parties to use when procuring screening devices and associated trace consumables in accordance with TSA approved security programs.
The HI-SCAN 145180-2is pro has been added under the latest program requirements to ensure the security of cargo aboard aircraft. A fast and effective inspection system that has been specifically designed to meet the rigorous demands of air cargo screening, the scanner is equipped with two 200 kV X-ray generators, one of which is uniquely positioned under the conveyor.
Shan Hood, President of Smiths Detection Inc., remarked: “We work hard every day to provide technology that both protects people and assets from threats and supports time-critical operations, so we are delighted to receive confirmation that the HI-SCAN 145180-2is pro has been qualified on the TSA ACSTL.
“Due to the majority of air cargo being carried on passenger planes and threats becoming more prevalent and complex, ICAO recommends 100 % security screening of consolidated and palletised freight. Through this state-of-the-art screening system we are able to provide air cargo operators with both confidence and compliance.”
