Smiths Detection Inc. (SDI) today announces that its advanced dual-view X-ray cargo scanner, the HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro, has become its latest system to be accepted into the “qualified” section of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)’s Air Cargo Screening Technology List (ACSTL).

Based on a Dual-View concept, the HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro delivers better security with faster, more accurate and reliable image evaluation. The 180180-2is pro’s large tunnel dimensions allow goods on the largest TSA-approved pallet size to be screened and its high penetration capabilities allow for screening of large-scale consolidated and palletized goods. Its optimized footprint, which is 25% smaller than earlier versions, frees up floor space.

Dan Gelston, President, SDI, said, “Dual-View technology has long been a part of our screening systems, and we continue to work with TSA to ensure our products help address evolving threats. Smiths Detection’s close customer relationships and ability to understand their needs are essential elements to maintaining the class-leading status of our products, further confirmed by this latest inclusion on the ACSTL.”

One of the biggest changes to the ACSTL in 2015 was the requirement that new X-ray inspection equipment must offer Dual-View capability. SDI remains at the forefront of security solutions and, by working hand in hand with its air cargo customers, meets this new requirement.

SDI currently has a large selection of Dual-View X-ray screening equipment on the qualified section of the ACSTL. Customers may select from one of several SDI Dual-View systems for their cargo screening applications to meet the TSA air cargo screening requirements.
