New x-ray scanners for Alaska Air Cargo


Alaska Air Cargo has ordered Astrophysics XIS-1517DV 200kV x-ray scanners for its Pacific northwest airline hubs.

The X-ray systems will replace and upgrade aging cargo scanning equipment being phased out of service and standardise Astrophysics’ technology across its US¬†facilities.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires all cargo transported on passenger aircraft be 100 per cent screened prior to being loaded onto aircraft.

X-ray scanners used for cargo screening must be TSA-qualified and included in the agency’s list of approved screening technologies.

Astrophysics chief executive officer, Francois Zayek says: “Our XIS-1517DV 200kV X-ray scanners are the perfect solution for Alaska’s critical mission. We are proud to add this machine to their inventory of Astrophysics products.”
