X-ray Screening Performance Evaluation and Verification System
Ensuring international border security standards
The world’s only fully comprehensive medium to large x-ray performance evaluation and verification system
Until now there hasn’t been a fully comprehensive global standard for testing and verifying the calibration and image quality control of medium to large scale X-ray screening devices, as set by The American National Standards Institute (ANSI.)
XTE is the only commercially available system to provide comprehensive performance verification tests consistent with the internationally accepted small systems ASTM F792 standard, plus exceeds the more recent ANSI N42.46, specifically designed for transportation security screening.
Developed by the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) in collaboration with University of Canberra (UC), National Security Science and Technology Unit (NSSTU), Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development & Local Government (Infrastructure), Australian Customs Service (ACS), and the Australian Federal Police (AFP).
Helping maintain the highest possible standard of x-ray system performance
To maintain the highest possible standard of international border security, 100% X-ray screening of maritime, land and air freight is now a necessity. This includes manifest verification; interdiction of contraband; screening for chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNE) threats; and the smuggling of armaments and potential weapons of mass destruction (WMD.)
Using the XTE performance evaluation and verification system ensures X-ray image quality and provides better decision making in the management of X-ray systems, allowing for greater efficiency of X-ray scanning.
