Next Big Thing: Smiths Detection X-ray screening
Airports aren’t the only places using X-ray screening to search for weapons, narcotics, and
explosives. Smiths Detection reports that over the past year, U.S. schools have bought more than
$1.1 million worth of its security systems with which to screen students and staff alike. The tech
provider’s portable HI-SCAN 5030si and HI-SCAN 6040ds systems produce detailed images
of scanned items through high-resolution sensor technology, enabling school safety agents to
quickly evaluate bags, backpacks, and other personal items.
