Used to performance-test existing fleet of pallet and container x-ray systems (nine systems in five locations) on a monthly basis.

Significantly simpler process than previous testing: one pass per view, compared with up to one day of testing with old equipment.

Enables the performance monitoring of x-ray systems over time, in order to identify performance issues early – before there is a major failure. Additionally, it assists with decisions on asset replacement.

The cost of purchase and use (of XTE) is easily justified if it helps to extend useful life of large x-ray equipment, given their high initial purchase costs.
