3DX-Ray has announced a follow-on contract for the sale of four new ThreatScan-LS3 x-ray scanner systems to an intergovernmental customer for deployment in the ongoing operations in Mali.

ThreatScan-LS3 is a light, compact yet powerful x-ray scanning system that comes in a backpack, ideally suited to military EOD operations.

The system can penetrate 34mm of steel at 120kV as standard, with a 305mm x 256mm imaging area, it can scan to near ground level, enabling typical suspect objects to be scanned in one quick scan, so important in high threat environments. 

The ThreatScan-LS3 is designed for ease of use and rapid deployment for a single operative. ThreatScan systems operate with the intuitive and user-friendly ThreatSpect software to produce high quality, sub-millimetre high resolution images, with a range of sophisticated image processing functions, including materials discrimination, pan, zoom and DeepFocus.

The systems consist of:

• A compact detector panel
• A portable and robust x-ray generator
• A laptop imaging station
• Batteries and chargers
• Wireless communication
• One carry case for whole system
• ThreatSpect software

In addition to the ThreatScan-LS3 system the customer has also ordered additional spares and accessories.

3DX-RAY LTD, Sales and Marketing Director, Vincent Deery said: “We have been supplying this customer with multiple systems since 2013. They operate in some of the world’s most challenging environments and high threat operational conditions. So, we are especially pleased that they continue to have faith in our systems and service and we are especially pleased to do our part in keeping their personnel and civilian populations in the region safe.”
