SAIC Introduces VACIS® P 7500 Cargo Inspection System


Oct 02, 2006 - (SAN DIEGO and MCLEAN, VA) - Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) today announced the launch of its VACIS® P 7500 Inspection System – a compact, high-penetration and high-energy inspection portal that is designed to scan up to 150 cargo containers per hour.

SAIC is a leading provider of efficient, effective and compact low-dose cargo inspection systems with more than 300 systems installed worldwide.

The VACIS® P 7500 Inspection System provides a small footprint with high throughput, utilizing SAIC’s patented drive-through technology. The imaging system is ideally suited for high-volume ports and transportation facilities that require high-throughput inspections of dense cargo. The system comprises a low-dose compact 7.5MeV accelerator working in conjunction with a high-efficiency detector array to produce high-resolution and high-contrast images. This low-radiation dose produced by the source requires less shielding and a smaller radiation restricted area than conventional X-ray units. Excellent image quality is achieved at individual scan speeds of up to 5 mph and throughput rates of 150 units per hour.

“We are pleased to offer the next generation of our line of VACIS® Inspection System products,” said Alex Preston, SAIC senior vice president and general manager of the Security and Transportation Technology Business Unit. “The VACIS® P 7500 represents a breakthrough in performance for advanced security screening applications. With minimum impact to commercial operations, the VACIS® P 7500 offers a unique combination of safety, high throughput, and high penetration in a small footprint.”
