Units Will Help Detect Hidden Contraband at Multiple Checkpoints.
A Singapore government agency upgraded seventeen (17) X-ray scanners to Astrophysics, Inc. equipment at multiple checkpoints within the city. These systems will replace and upgrade aging machines being phased out of service and also help the agency detect prohibited materials, including cigarettes and regulated drugs.
The agency acquired sixteen (16) XIS-6545DVS and one (1) XIS-6545DVS equipped with a mobility kit. The X-ray scanners’ dual-view technology provides operators with two (2) X-ray images, giving them better detection capabilities to uncover hidden and illegal contraband the government is searching for.
Astrophysics, Inc. CEO Francois Zayek commented: “I am delighted to partner with the Singapore [government] to upgrade security equipment at facilities throughout the country. Our XIS-6545 DVS is the ideal machine for their important mission to detect hidden contraband.”
