SDI’s Dual-View HI-SCAN 6040-2is Qualifies for Updated Air Cargo Screening List

[ November 2, 2015   //   ]

Smiths Detection Inc.’s (SDI) dual-view HI-SCAN 6040-2is X-ray has become its latest system to be accepted into the “Qualified” section of TSA’s Air Cargo Screening Technology List (ACSTL).

The 6040-2is is an advanced, dual-view X-ray inspection system that uses multiple views and sophisticated algorithms to indicate items that might be threats. It offers ACSTL “Category A” screening for smaller items, items that will later be in pallets, or break bulk cargo. It can penetrate 35mm steel and provides a flexible, easy-to-use interface, which makes it a top choice for government buildings, hotels and other infrastructures where security checkpoints are required. It has also has been approved for EU Standard 3 Type C (LEDS) use in airport checkpoints across Europe.

One of the biggest changes in the 2015 update to the ACSTL was the requirement that new X-ray inspection purchases must be dual-view. Through this achievement, Smiths has been able to demonstrate the ability to remain on the forefront of security solutions and meeting the needs of its air cargo customers.
