TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rapiscan Systems, a leading global supplier of security inspection systems, today announced that the company has been awarded multiple contracts from both government and commercial entities in Canada for security initiatives at land and sea borders.
Rapiscan will provide its Eagle G60 for seaport cargo screening, its 620DV for aviation carry-on baggage screening, and both its 620DV and 628DV systems for cruise ship passenger baggage screening.
“Rapiscan can meet the security requirements of governments and commercial companies around the world. We are excited to provide Canadian government agencies and commercial businesses with our advanced screening technologies and services,” said Pak Chin, President of Rapiscan Systems. “Rapiscan designs its products to provide best-in-class security and value for the most demanding environments.”
The Eagle G60’s 6 MV X-ray imaging system is capable of distinguishing low-density contraband, such as explosives or narcotics, from high-density materials, such as steel. With best-in-class imaging, robust standard features and advanced options, the Eagle G60 offers an efficient, high-performance system for reliable inspection.
Rapiscan’s 620DV and 628DV dual-view X-ray imaging systems scan briefcases, carry-on baggage, laptops, small cargo parcels and a wide range of other objects and generate two high-definition images at perpendicular angles, thereby increasing the operator’s ability to visually identify potential threat items. The systems may also include Rapiscan’s proprietary explosives and narcotics identification software tools.
