Ports & Borders

Smiths Detection’s powerful systems have set the industry standard in cargo inspection, to reduce international shipments of contraband and discover explosives, weapons, even material for weapons of mass destruction. We meet the challenge of rapid detection without disrupting the daily flow of goods. 

For information on the levels of security required at sea ports and the available technology from Smiths Detection view this video interview.

Threat Areas

Our high energy X-ray screening systems are designed to optimize security checks at ports, airports, and border crossings.  They can inspect whole trucks, containers and vehicles for explosives, narcotics, weapons of mass destruction and other contraband. 

Pallet inspection systems for bulk items, skeleton containers, pallets etc in re-check/warehouse areas.

Checking passengers, and their hand baggage, for explosives and illegal or dangerous items.

At Port/Border entrances Security staff need detection systems for vehicle inspection and personnel security as well as investigating unattended bags or unknown substances.
