3D X-Ray Ltd have supplied their Threatscan-LSC system to the UK’s Thames Valley Police, who will deploy the system to support the Specialist Search Unit during operations at public events. This system provides the unit with the capability of identifying the contents of suspect bags and packages quickly and accurately, in their core mission of keeping the public safe.

The 3D X-Ray Threatscan-LSC system is one of the very latest systems in portable flat screen X-ray technology, it is a portable x-ray inspection system that includes two panels: the large format LS1 panel and the compact LS3 panel.

The LS1 panel has a large imaging area of 600mm x 460mm to scan typical bags and packages in one scan and yet is still remarkably lightweight and incredibly thin.
The LS3 panel is more compact with an imaging area of 305mm x 256mm, for use where access to suspect packages is limited or under vans, for example.

This combination system is powerful and can penetrate steel up to 34mm at 120kV and up to 60 mm at 150kV. It also produces high quality, sub-millimetre resolution images.
The Threatscan-LSC system includes a backpack for maximum portability.

3D X-Ray’s Interim CEO, Vince Deery said, “Thames Valley Police are a new customer for us, so we are delighted to be working with them and look forward to supporting them over the coming months and years”.
