SureScan Corporation’s SureScan x1000, next generation technology and design built for accurate detection, at an overall lower cost of ownership.
The SureScan x1000 Explosive Detection System is the first TSA certified and now, ECAC EDS Standard 3.1 (tests for speeds up to 1,800 bags/hour, .5 m/s conveyor speed) multi-energy static gantry explosive detection system (EDS) for checked baggage screening, representing the next generation in EDS detection technology and design.
Through the application of advanced science and technology, the x1000 meets current detection demands and is adaptable to meet the evolving threats around the world.
With its innovative use of proven computed tomography (CT) and implementation of multi-energy detection for atomic number analysis, the x1000 delivers low false alarm rates, and a high level of accuracy of current and emerging threat detection, including home made explosives (HME’s.)
The combination of these features allows the x1000 to adapt and, in essence, future proofs the product throughout its life cycle.
Designed from the ground up, for checked baggage screening, with efficiencies in operation and performance in a checked baggage screening environment, the x1000 is specifically engineered to be an economical solution over the system’s entire life cycle.
“SureScan’s new ECAC 3.1 standard is evidence of the x1000’s advanced capabilities as SureScan is the first system to pass this newest higher level standard,” said SureScan President John Percival.
“The newly awarded ECAC 3.1 is on the path to a single machine that passes both TSA and ECAC testing at multiple speeds with the ability to switch algorithms on a bag by bag basis.”
“This alleviates the problem that airports need to divert bags to different machines depending on their destination; creating extra value and minimizing infrastructure complexity.”
The SureScan x1000 next-generation CT EDS features:
- Multi-Energy Photon Counting – Individual photon counting into multiple energy bins for evolving threats and standards
- Flexible Throughput – Large rectangular tunnel throughout
- Intelligent Platform – With more precise measurements and multiple energies, it provides the data for algorithm development in the future
- Static Gantry- Higher reliability, no moving parts, self calibration
- Lower Lifecycle Cost of Ownership – Less power, less repair and maintenance
