Units Will Be Installed at Airline’s Hubs in the Pacific Northwest
Alaska Air Cargo ordered Astrophysics, Inc. (Astrophysics) XIS-1517DV 200kV X-ray scanners for its Pacific Northwest airline hubs. These X-ray systems will replace and upgrade aging cargo scanning equipment being phased out of service and standardize Astrophysics’ technology across the airline’s United States facilities.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires all cargo transported on passenger aircraft be 100 percent screened prior to being loaded onto planes. X-ray scanners used for cargo screening must be TSA-qualified and included in the agency’s list of approved screening technologies. Astrophysics is proud to have eight (8) units qualified by TSA for cargo screening, including the XIS-1517DV 200kV ordered by Alaska Air Cargo.
Regarding the award, Astrophysics, Inc. CEO Francois Zayek stated: “Our XIS-1517DV 200kV X-ray scanners are the perfect solution for Alaska’s critical mission. We are proud to add this machine to their inventory of Astrophysics products.”
