Inspection System for Large-Size Cargo

    Remote detection of explosives in large-size cargo and vehicles.
  • Tagged fast neutrons technology is used.
  • Elemental composition of a hidden object is determined.
  • 3D location of a hidden object is determined.
  • High penetration power of fast neutrons.
  • Identification is automatic, without an operator.
  • Inspection of the cargo from three sides by means of a movable inspection module.
  • Designed as a stationary portal with a movable inspection module.
  • Simultaneous inspection in 64 tagged neutron beams.
  • High intensity neutron generator.
  • Remote control of inspection module positioning.
Inspection System for Large-Size Cargo
  • Inspection module is installed on special 4000 × 3000 mm portal, which allows its movement around the cargo being inspected. Inspection module comprises a high intensity neutron generator with neutron flux up to 3 × 108 s-1. The generator irradiates the cargo being inspected with 64 tagged neutron beams. Characteristic gamma-rays are registered with 24 gamma-detectors. Complete weight of inspection module is 980kg.
