The CarSCAN X-ray imaging system by Spectrum San Diego identifies concealed threats, like improvised explosive devices, in cars and light trucks at vehicle checkpoints. The machine utilizes low-dose, dual-energy X-ray imaging to detect explosives, contraband and stowaways. Vehicles can be driven through the system at a maximum of 10 mph, and it can be installed in existing traffic lanes in approximately four hours.
A monitor displays the color-coded scanned images, which helps officers identify a vehicle's contents, similar to the baggage scanners used at airports. Visit Spectrum San Diego for more information.
