USAF Selects Guardian X-Ray Systems
Vidisco USA Inc. recently announced the award of a US$27 million contract to supply more than 300 Guardian 12” X-Ray systems to the United States Air Force (USAF). The contract will be carried out over a five-year period. This is the second award in two years, after a previous award for more than 200 systems to the US Marine Corps in 2019.
This award recognises the quality and versatility of Vidisco’s products and position. Vidisco USA Inc. as one of the largest X-ray suppliers for the United States Department of Defense. Its portable X-ray solutions have been selected by numerous military and law enforcement agencies around the world, including the United States Marine Corps and various army and police forces in Israel, France, Italy, Japan, and Finland. The Guardian system is a military-grade DR system designed especially for security applications. Dustproof and waterproof, with MIL-SPEC and IP-67 ratings, the Guardian was designed to meet the extreme conditions of security and military missions. Military X-ray inspections are commonly conducted under stressful and dangerous situations. In these situations, X-ray images must be captured rapidly and analysed in a short time frame. To address this challenge, the Guardian system offers ultra-fast deployment, one-time downrange, and a high-resolution digital image captured with one pulse only, as well as advanced image editing software.
For the past 30 years, Vidisco has delivered thousands of portable X-ray systems for EOD/IED military and law enforcement customers around the globe. Close work with such units has enabled Vidisco to manufacture improved solutions to suit customer needs. The Guardian includes additional optional accessories, such as integration with robots, a dual energy module for organic/inorganic differentiation, and an option that allows fusion of X-ray and visible images using Augmented Reality (AR), as well as a slider solution for large object scanning, 3D scanning (XAR), and more.
