Company Providing Units for Checkpoint Security in Pyeongchang, South Korea
Astrophysics, Inc. (Astrophysics) announced it has been selected to supply X-ray scanners for next year’s 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. In partnership with its local dealer, Astrophysics will deliver scanners needed to secure the venues, screen spectators and inspect shipments at the Olympic Games.
The contract calls for machines ranging from XIS-6040 checkpoint units up to XIS-1517 cargo scanners. All equipment will be outfitted to handle freezing winter weather and configured to withstand temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit). This award comes two (2) months after the 29th Worldwide Universiade Games in Taipei, Taiwan, in which Astrophysics delivered nearly one hundred (100) X-ray scanners for checkpoint security at the Games.
Astrophysics, Inc. CEO Francois Zayek commented: “Astrophysics is proud to provide security systems for the upcoming Winter Olympics. Astrophysics’ scanners are ideally suited to protect the participants, spectators and facilities, and we are excited to see the amazing athletes compete on the world stage.”
