OSI Systems Chairman and CEO, Deepak Chopra, stated: “We are pleased to support the U.S. Army with our advanced personnel screening and Cargo and Vehicle Inspection products. This contract will allow us to demonstrate how Rapiscan solutions can be deployed in even the most demanding environments to provide comprehensive screening capabilities.”
Rapiscan Systems’ industry leading Eagle® Cargo and Vehicle Inspection product line uses proprietary high-energy X-ray technology to provide comprehensive and efficient detection of contraband, weapons, narcotics and other potential threat items in a wide range of containers and vehicles. Rapiscan System’s Secure 1000 personnel screening system is designed to help screeners detect potential threat objects concealed on passengers. Using proprietary imaging technology and image processing software, the system offers advantages over alternatives such as metal detectors and hand searches, because it can rapidly help screeners comprehensively detect non-metallic threats and explosives, as well as metal objects.
Rapiscan Systems President, Ajay Mehra commented: “This significant contract award builds on our substantial experience supporting the U.S. DOD and underscores that sophisticated customers such as the U.S. Army are increasingly looking for Rapiscan to not only provide great technology, but also provide solutions that address their most important operational and security requirements.”
