Image Scan Contract Wins

Image Scan, the AIM-listed specialist supplier of x-ray screening systems to the security and industrial inspection markets, announces that it has signed new contracts totaling £92,400 to provide its security products to organisations in the emerging Asian markets. The contracts demonstrate the successful extension of the Company’s global reach and marketing across the region.

The AXIS-64 conveyor x-ray systems will be installed as part of a suite of screening equipment at a new national strategic facility that will be subject to the highest security protection within Myanmar. The AXIS-64 system has been chosen after a validation and testing programme where its UK build quality was a significant factor in the selection criteria.

The Company’s FlatScan hand portable x-ray system will be supplied into Vietnam and Bangladesh for the first time. The multi-unit contracts for military customers will see the end users in these territories utilise hand portable digital x-ray systems that are back-packable and quick to deploy. The FlatScan’s inherent wireless characteristic was key to securing contracts with these customers; alternative systems often involve carrying separate wireless network or repeater devices. These FlatScan units will also take advantage of the latest software developments where the systems use colour to differentiate between differing material compositions. The colour demarcations will enable users to quickly and more accurately determine the makeup and hence potential threat of the item that has been x-ray inspected.

Bill Mawer, Chairman and CEO of Image Scan, said: “These contracts represent another positive step in building the international presence of Image Scan’s products. It is further recognition that the advanced Image Scan technology encompassed in high quality products is able to gain traction in established and rapidly emerging growth markets.

“Our AXIS-64 system, a fully integrated stand-alone conveyor x-ray inspection system, is ideally suited to small package inspection, while the fully wireless hand portable FlatScan systems are deployed throughout the globe for varying applications including counter terror, emergency responder, EOD, customs and excise, and counter surveillance measures”.
