NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viken Detection, pioneer of handheld x-ray imaging and analytical devices, today announced the introduction of its Broadwing-LADTM accessory for the HBI-120 handheld x-ray imager. The detachable, lightweight, large-area detector enhances vehicle inspection capabilities for drug interdiction and enables new applications of the HBI-120, including building searches, tactical raids and counter-surveillance.
The HBI-120 is currently in use by law enforcement agencies around the world and with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at the U.S. border. The HBI-120 is responsible for significant seizures of cash, drugs and weapons concealed in vehicles. The addition of the Broadwing-LAD accessory provides not only a deeper scan but also a larger view of items being inspected, including vehicles, and even allows authorities to “sweep” rooms to ensure safe entry for officers.
No other technology on the market can provide this breadth of capabilities.
“Our vision is to take Viken technology anywhere there is a public safety problem that technology can solve,” said Viken Detection CEO, Jim Ryan. “The addition of our Broadwing-LAD accessory enables superior threat detection across multiple public safety scenarios. As technology plays an ever more significant role in law enforcement, Viken is at the leading edge, developing new devices that are futureproof, multi-layered and open-sourced to allow them to work together with other solutions and keep the public safe.”
Viken Detection is the market leader in handheld x-ray imaging and in handheld lead detection, helping officials in each of these capacities keep the public safe. Viken manufactured the first ever handheld device capable of imaging vehicles for drug interdiction.
