PORTAL-BETA is a unique multi-view multi-energy rail- mounted gantry designed for the inspection of sealed sea freight containers such as 20/40/45ft, consignments inside trucks and other vehicles. It can detect smuggled goods, including plastic weapons and explosives, drugs, radioactive materials.
The main system components are the X-ray generator, which produces high energy X-ray beam, and the highly sensitive L-shaped detector. PORTAL-BETA is designed in such a way that it is practically impossible to hide illegal items inside the inspected objects owing to the multiple imaging obtained from various perspectives. These perspectives are chosen in such a way that the hidden item will be surely seen from one of the multi-views regardless of its location inside the inspected object.
The PORTAL- BETA combines powerful penetration and low radiation dosage. The system is normally located in a temperature controlled permanent or solid build infrastructure and can operate 24/7. The system automatically inspects vehicles without driver, placed between the rails (the gantry moves, images are transmitted to the remote control room over them) for further examination. PORTAL-BETA is ideally suited for applications at customs facilities, sea and airports, border crossings.
The system configuration allows fast and thorough inspection of 20/40/45ft sea containers
and other freight up to 25 - 40 vehicles/trucks per hour.
