3DX-RAY have recently announced a contract for the supply of three ThreatScan-LSC Portable X-ray Scanning Systems to the Royal Air Force (RAF). This is 3DX-RAY’s first contract with the RAF and the ThreatScan-LSC’s will replace existing systems.

The systems are designed specifically for military and first responder EOD and Counter-IED teams and are in use throughout the world.


The ThreatScan-LSC is a combination package that includes a large format ThreatScan-LS1 panel, a compact ThreatScan-LS3 panel with back-pack, a tablet PC imaging station and the I-Gen generator for rapid field deployment.

The 600mm x 460mm imaging area of the LS1 panel enables the operator to scan typical bags and packages in a single scan. The smaller 305mm x 256mm LS3 panel enables the operator to access and scan objects within confined areas, whilst still being able to scan suspect items in a single scan. These systems can penetrate up to 34mm steel at 120kV while producing high quality, sub-millimetre resolution images.

Vincent Deery, Sales and Marketing Director at 3DX-RAY, remarked: “We are especially pleased with this contract, not just because this is our first contract with the Royal Air Force, but because the RAF’s reputation for operational excellence makes their choice of our equipment to meet their operational requirements especially gratifying.”
