Advanced X-ray Technology To Help Protect Federal Courthouses
Smiths Detection recently announced a $3.5 million contract with the United States Marshals Service for HI-SCAN 6046si advanced X-ray screening systems. The systems will be installed in courthouse lobbies throughout the United States to screen personal belongings of those entering the building.
Designed to produce detailed images with high resolution sensor technology, the Hi-SCAN 6046si will allow Marshals’ personnel to quickly and effectively evaluate personal bags, briefcases and other items as people pass through check points.
“This order underlines the broad application of our advanced X-ray systems in providing security solutions to critical infrastructures such as courthouses and other public buildings,” said Cherif Rizkalla, president, security and inspection for Smiths Detection.
“Our HI-SCAN 6046si systems have proven to be highly effective in many different environments, with more than 6,000 installations worldwide and we are confident they will assist to better protect courthouses,” said Mark Laustra, vice president of homeland security for Smiths Detection.
