The RTR-5 is a next-generation portable x-ray system for detecting explosives,
weapons and other contraband. Utilizing a computed radiography (CR) plate and
a unique digital radiography (DR) scanning system, the RTR-5 supports rapid
deployment in extremely tight spaces and near realtime acquisition of multiple
images from a single approach.
A powerful, versatile system
The RTR-5 system is designed to help law enforcement, military, customs
and security personnel search for explosives, weapons, narcotics and other
contraband. The system can reveal the contents of parcels, baggage, boxes and
crates, vehicle tires and body panels, aircraft walls and wings, building walls, and
many other targets. The RTR-5 system can be a valuable aid in assessing and
defusing improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and unexploded ordnance (UXO)
by helping personnel evaluate objects from a safe distance and identify the best
method for defeat or disposal. The system can also be an effective tool for nondestructive
inspection of hardware components, assemblies and structures.
Designed for use in the field
The RTR-5 system consists of a lightweight, compact flat panel Imager and X-ray
source that are positioned on opposite sides of the target object, plus a notebook
or tablet computer for controlling the system and analyzing images.
The RTR-5 combines the advantages of near real-time DR with the image quality
of CR phosphor imaging in a lightweight, flat panel imager. The hybrid DR/CR
imager delivers fast viewing, no image degradation, and easy image analysis and
management. The system can be used in tight quarters, right down to ground level.
The flat panel imager is easy to manually move into position and can be mounted
on bomb-disposal robots for remote operation.
