SCANNA has announced that its Scan X scout Portable X-ray Systems have been used as part of the security arrangements for the recent 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.  

The Scan X scout is a versatile portable x-ray system which can be used to detect concealed weapons, explosives and other hidden threats. SCANNA has supplied the Japanese Government with a large number of the Scan X scout systems. In the context of Major Event Security the Scan X scout can be used to carry out vehicle and venue searches as well as the investigation of unattended and suspicious items. The Scan X Scout is a popular solution for security tasks as the thin flexible plates can be deployed quickly into difficult to access areas allowing a high-definition X-ray image to be created in seconds.  

SCANNA Sales and Marketing Director, Paul Taylor comments: “The security of high-profile major events is important and we are therefore delighted to be able to support the Japanese authorities in this way. It is a great honour to be associated with prestigious events such as the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics which have been a resounding success and enjoyed by millions around the world. All credit to the organisers for making the events a great success in such difficult circumstances.”
