PORTABLE SAFETY AND SECURITY
Vidisco supplies the U.S. DOD with handheld, lightweight X-ray inspection systems, that can capture X-ray images of any item, in any circumstances, within seconds. As military X-ray inspections are commonly conducted under stressful and dangerous situations, the speed at which images can be captured is crucial. To address this challenge, Vidisco’s X-Ray systems can be deployed quickly, with one-time downrange, capturing a high-resolution digital image with only one pulse.
The X-ray source used in every Vidisco system has a safe design, with a high sensitivity detector. This ensures that the X-ray systems can be used safely in public spaces, which is vital for the success of many military operations, where threats to the public must be detected in close proximity to military personnel and citizens alike.
NDT SOLUTIONS FOR MISSION READINESS
In complement to security applications, Vidisco’s portable X-Ray solutions perform a vital role in the non-destructive testing (NDT) procedures that are often performed by the Army, to ensure mission readiness. NDT allows military personnel to uncover potential safety threats. Vidisco provides rugged, complete NDT systems that can be used to detect erosion or corrosion in sensitive military equipment, such as weapon systems or vehicle parts, or to uncover infrastructure defects that present a significant hazard to military personnel.
RATED FOR QUALITY AND SAFETY
All Vidisco X-Ray solutions are military-grade DR systems, designed especially for security applications. Every system is dustproof and waterproof, with MIL-SPEC and IP-67 ratings. Vidisco systems continue to provide high quality X-ray scanning capabilities in extreme conditions, as often encountered during complex and challenging military missions.
