Smiths Detection Unveils Next Generation Security System for UAE’s Critical Infrastructure Assets at Intersec 2016

posted on Jan 18, 2016

HI-SCAN 6040C X-Ray Scanner designed for detecting current and future threats to key establishments


Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 18 January 2016: As part of its commitment to next generation security systems that further strengthen UAE’s homeland security infrastructure, Smiths Detection today unveiled the HS6040C, at Intersec 2016. The new advanced X-ray system has been designed specifically to screen hand-carried items at the entrance of critical infrastructure assets like government buildings, hotels, exhibition centers and sporting facilities.

Paul Baker, Regional Managing Director Middle East of Smiths Detection, said: “Security incidents in public spaces around the world demonstrate how vulnerable our society can be. Our new HI-SCAN 6040C X-ray inspection system is tailored to the security needs of areas where large numbers of people come and go every day. The upgraded electronics and software ensure that it is prepared for both current and future security requirements for critical infrastructure assets in the UAE and wider Middle East”.

The HI-SCAN 6040C meets all requirements for the screening of bags, packages and other objects for prohibited or dangerous items in buildings. These include government offices, embassies, palaces, banks, hotels, office buildings, as well as customs checkpoints, power plants and other utilities. With its attractive design and small footprint, the HI-SCAN 6040C fits easily into any entrance area. Its electronics and software can be easily upgraded to meet future security requirements and scan for new or specific threats efficiently.

“At Smiths Detection, we have supported the development of UAE’s security infrastructure over the past three decades and our commitment to support the country’s homeland security infrastructure is resolute”, added Paul Baker.

The high quality of the X-ray images makes detection of potential threats simple and minimises errors. Intelligent image display functions support the operator by distinguishing between organic and inorganic materials on the screen. This is particularly important for the rapid detection of explosives, weapons, drugs, food or money.

Functions to check operational status during start-up and use, give regular information on the overall condition of the unit and make it easy to operate. Diagnostic systems provide operators and technicians with specific information for troubleshooting and help reduce downtime.

HI-SCAN 6040C can be included in a complete security checkpoint by adding other detection technologies from Smiths Detection such as people-screening systems or trace detectors for explosives or narcotics.
