HotZone Guardian MULTI THREAT SECURITY SCANNER
New Standard in Luggage and Parcel Security Inspection
The Guardian MTSS is a vehicle based or stationary X-ray security system with integrated Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Explosive (CBRE) detection and sampling capabilities. The system is intended for rapid, flow-through screening of hand luggage, carried luggage and man transportable cargo. It is customisable towards the specific needs and it can be delivered as the self-sustainable platform.
The Guardian MTSS features the dual energy X-ray system with alpha-beta-gamma pre-screen and chamber integrated sampling and CBE detection capabilities. It is intended for use as the luggage or parcel security scanner to detect threats such as:
- Concealed weapons, explosives, Improvised Explosive Devices (IED)
- Dangerous micro-organisms
- Hazardous chemicals such as Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA) and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC)
- Radioactive material
The detection alarm for the presence of biological aerosols and hazardous chemical vapours, automatically triggers the sample collection system. The biological sample is collected into a special canister easy to retreive. The chemical vapour sample is collected into an adsorbent tube.
At current security checkpoints, not all carryon luggage or parcels are tested by trace detector. They are commonly examined by X-ray imaging only. One of the reasons is that the typical test procedures with a trace detector are not quick enough. The surface of the inspected object has to be manually wiped to collect adhered contamination, the wipe is then inserted into the trace detector and heated for detection. Guardian MTSS sets a new standard in luggage and parcel security inspection by supplying not only information on presence of possible threat objects through standard bulk X-ray detection, but also information on possible presence and identity of radioactive materials, biological aerosols, and hazardous chemicals. The system is delivered mounted on a mobile or a stationary platform, by choice of the end-user. The mobile platform is a selfsustained system housed in a medium size van. The van is compartmentalised into driver, screening and operator area. The van’s sides open, extending conveyors. Inspected objects are placed on the conveyor belt that leads to the specially modified X-ray chamber. At the chamber entry, the object is pre-screened with the radiological detector. The chamber contains a „disturb and sample“ system that dislodges eventually present particles adhering to the object and carries them to the sampling ports. Sampling ports lead to the biological aerosol detector and chemical vapour detector, respectively. In the case of alarm, samples are collected and concentrated so that they can be retrieved for furher analysis. The sample collection uses universal carriers compatible with standard laboratory sample preparation practices. A number of post-chamber detection opportunities are offered such as hand held explosives trace detector, flame photometry based chemical detector and portable Raman device for fast chemical analysis.
