Ports & Borders
The priorities have moved from monitoring cross-border cargo and reducing international shipments of contraband, to screening for explosives, arms, dirty bombs and weapons of mass destruction. Smiths Detection screening systems provide support for all these Customs and border protection requirements.
Identifying such threats is increasingly more difficult, hidden inside a vehicle or concealed in the middle of the shipment. The challenge is rapid detection without disrupting the daily flow of goods.
Smiths Detection HCV X-ray systems have set the industry standard in cargo inspection for more than 15 years. They are available in various forms, from mobile units ready for use on all terrains in less than 15 minutes, up to fixed high-volume installations. More than 250 cargo screening systems and over 200 mobile cargo systems have now supplied worldwide, for use by Customs and border protection officers in over 50 different countries.
