Smiths Detection has installed a mobile
high-energy inspection system trailer, the HCVM XT, at the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) in Capellen, Luxembourg.
The NSPA site requires all external construction
vehicles, and other equipment providers, to be scanned for
potential threats that enter the site such as incendiary and
explosive devices, radiological materials, weaponry and
unauthorized surveillance or covert equipment.
Smiths Detection’s HCVM XT X-ray screening system has a throughput of up to 25 vehicles
an hour in mobile scanning mode and up to 100 trucks an hour in
pass-through mode, with a steel penetration of up to 320mm,
providing detailed X-ray images that also distinguishes organic
and inorganic material.
“We are delighted to be given the opportunity to
supply the NSPA with this mobile high-energy inspection system and
to be extending our work in Luxembourg, following on from our
partnership with Luxembourg Customs using the same technology,”
said Jasper van Gend, Head of Market, Europe North & East.
“Against a backdrop of increasingly complex threats, the NSPA is
now well equipped to efficiently detect and deal with any
potential threats coming onto the site utilising the HCVM XT, with
its six scanning modes and adjustable scanning heights and
When equipped with the optional iCMORE
radioactive-material detection system, the HCVM can carry out
simultaneous X-ray inspections and an analysis to detect
radioactive gamma and neutron materials.
