: 17 May, 2010  (Company News)
The backscatter technology based Rapiscan Secure 1000 system from OSI Systems is enjoying higher order levels from the transportation, homeland security and police
OSI Systems has announced that its Security division, Rapiscan Systems, has been awarded multiple customer contracts with a combined value of approximately $6 million for its Rapiscan Secure 1000 personnel screening system. The value of these orders raises the total value of orders received for the Rapiscan Secure 1000 system in the Company’s fiscal year ending June 30, 2010, to approximately $50 million.

Ajay Mehra, President of Rapiscan Systems, stated, “Following on from our recently announced order from the US Transportation Security Administration, these most recent contract awards from multiple customers demonstrate the growing demand for the Secure 1000 product line globally. We are seeing significant customer interest in the Rapiscan Secure 1000, not only in aviation but for other security applications due to the systems proprietary technology which offers customers the best combination of security and operational efficiency, as it can detect small, non-metallic concealed threats very quickly and with excellent image resolution. This means that there is better threat detection, fewer false alarms and a reduced need for physical patdown searches.”

Used by aviation authorities, military organizations, homeland security, and police and correctional facilities, the Rapiscan Secure 1000 family of body scanners is one of the world’s most widely deployed advanced people screening solutions. The Rapiscan Secure 1000 family of technologies has been approved by regulators worldwide and is being deployed at airports globally. Its proprietary backscatter technology and image processing software enables the system to produce high-resolution images that allow an operator to easily identify concealed threat and contraband items. It is ideal for high security environments because unlike traditional metal detectors, it can detect organic and non-metallic items (eg plastic explosives, liquids, narcotics, ceramic weapons), as well as metallic threat items. Using the Rapiscan Secure 1000’s imaging capability, security screeners can detect concealed objects without a physical patdown search. By reducing false alarms and by making it easier to pinpoint the location of concealed items, the Rapiscan Secure 1000 also significantly improves checkpoint throughput and staffing efficiency.
