OSI Systems, a vertically-integrated provider of specialized electronic products for critical applications in the security and health care industries, announced that its large pallet cargo screening system from its Security division, Rapiscan Systems, has been added to the US Transportation Security Administration's air cargo screening qualified technology list. Developed for screening large air cargo containers and pallets, the system employs the company's proprietary transmission high energy X-ray technology to detect threats in even densely packed containers, thereby reducing the need to break down the container or pallet being inspected. The system is designed to accommodate large pallets that are difficult to inspect using traditional screening technologies.
Ajay Mehra, Rapiscan Systems' President, said: “With the addition of the system to the TSA qualified technology list, we offer air cargo companies an unsurpassed range of X-ray-based screening solutions for small, medium and large size cargoes. Our product range, combined with our global leadership in the air cargo screening market makes us a trusted partner who can help any air cargo company achieve compliance with TSA regulations.”
