Threat detection and security screen technologies firm, Smiths Detection has announced that its air cargo scanner has been added to the “qualified” section of the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Air Cargo screening technology list (ACSTL).

The ACSTL serves as an official guide for regulated parties to use when procuring screening devices and associated trace consumables in accordance with TSA approved security programmes.

The HI-SCAN 145180-2is pro has been specifically manufactured to meet the demands of air cargo screening.

Equipped with two 200kV X-ray generators, Smiths Detection says the system can deliver excellent penetration and high quality images, whilst also being easy to access for maintenance purposes.

“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,” said Shan Hood, president of Smiths Detection.
