ALL-TERRAIN VACIS® SCANNING SYSTEM
Leidos’s versatile All-Terrain VACIS mobile scanning system allows customs and security agents to search vehicles and cargo for weapons, contraband and other suspicious items in remote locations and difficult terrain.
Featuring Leidos’s proven, reliable gamma-ray imaging technology mounted on a rugged four-wheel-drive commercial pickup truck chassis, the All-Terrain VACIS system brings non-intrusive inspection capability wherever it’s needed. The system is ideal for assisting inspection operations at temporary or surprise checkpoints on unpaved roads or off-road in hard-to-reach locations.
The flexible All-Terrain VACIS system supports a variety of inspection requirements. For highest throughput, the system can operate as a portal, with vehicles driving through the stationary system. In moving mode, the system’s vehicle platform and source cart move synchronously past unoccupied vehicles, scanning them from bumper to bumper.
To reach rugged, remote locations, the All-Terrain VACIS system is implemented on a heavy-duty commercial pickup truck chassis with off-road four-wheel-drive capability and a four-seat cab. Leidos’s patented detector technology enables trained inspectors to view the contents of closed vehicles and containers through more than six inches of steel. Yet the system’s direct radiation dose per scan to cargo is extremely low — hundreds of times less than a typical dental X-ray — and the scatter dose to drivers, operators, and bystanders is even lower.
Leidos is a world leader in non-intrusive imaging technology, with hundreds of systems installed for government and commercial clients around the world. Every VACIS system is available with Leidos’s dedicated installation, training, maintenance and technical support.
