Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and security screening technologies, announces that it has successfully completed the delivery and installation of a mobile high-energy inspection system trailer, the HCVM XT, at the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) in Capellen, Luxembourg.
The NSPA site requires all external construction vehicles, and other equipment providers, to be scanned for potential threats that enter the site such as incendiary and explosive devices, radiological materials, weaponry and unauthorized surveillance or covert equipment.
Smiths Detection’s HCVM XT X-ray screening system quickly and efficiently screens for threats at the NSPA site while meeting the most demanding international security-screening requirements with a minimal size footprint and external infrastructure. The HCVM XT has a throughput of up to 25 vehicles an hour in mobile scanning mode and up to 100 trucks an hour in pass-through mode, with a steel penetration of up to 320mm, providing detailed X-ray images that also distinguishes organic and inorganic material. Smiths Detection is in the process of training NSPA agents to operate the product.
“We are delighted to be given the opportunity to supply the NSPA with this mobile high-energy inspection system and to be extending our work in Luxembourg, following on from our partnership with Luxembourg Customs using the same technology” said Jasper van Gend, Head of Market, Europe North & East. “Against a backdrop of increasingly complex threats, the NSPA is now well equipped to efficiently detect and deal with any potential threats coming onto the site utilising the HCVM XT, with its six scanning modes and adjustable scanning heights and angles.”
When equipped with the optional iCMORE radioactive-material detection system, the HCVM can carry out simultaneous X-ray inspections and an analysis to detect radioactive gamma and neutron materials.
