Vincent Deery, 3DX-Ray CEO said: “We are especially pleased about this sale because it is an important landmark in our sales strategy. Whilst we have been supplying our systems to EOD agencies all over the world for many years, this is the first sale of our recently released highest performing fully integrated system into the African market, which is a fast growing and increasingly important market to 3DX-Ray.”

According to the company, the ThreatScan-AS1(ISC) is a robust amorphous silicon portable X-ray inspection system.
