Smiths Detection wins US customs & border protection contract

Smiths Detection Inc. has won orders totaling $7.1 million for HCVM e35 NA and Scanvan technologies under existing indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Smiths Detection’s Scanvan is a small, easily maneuvered vehicle, fitted with Hi-Scan 100100T technology, a state-of-the-art X-ray system capable of scanning objects such as cargo, strollers, boxes or electronics. It is specially designed for the needs of customs facilities, airports, transport operators, and couriers – or wherever temporary high-security checkpoints are required.

The HCVM e35 NA is a fully integrated mobile solution used to inspect whole trucks, containers and vehicles. Utilising state-of-the-art software platforms to provide detailed X-ray image views, customisable image options, and comparison tools to enhance screening outcome, it screens for contraband and threats such as explosives, narcotics, and weapons. The solutions also help operators to reduce screening times and increase data collection capability.
