How does a port choose the right X-ray screening system for its operations? It depends what you’ re looking for. Felicity Landon reports
X-ray scanning technology is somewhat mature, according to Rapiscan’ s Peter Kant. “ We have multiple players in the market to deliver it, and the technology today isn’ t all that different from last year or the year before. “ There was a huge jump three or four years ago, but it is now fairly stable.” Of course, if someone drives a truck into the portal, then the structure and/or equipment may well have to be replaced.
Flexibility will be vital in responding to whatever scanning approach is decided upon by regulators, says Andrew Goldsmith of Rapiscan.
