Mobile VACIS® Imaging System
Versatile, mobile gamma-ray imaging for space-limited environments.
Mounted on a rugged truck chassis, the Mobile VACIS® imaging system helps trained operators see the contents of closed vehicles and containers, assisting them in intercepting weapons, contraband, and other items of interest and verifying shipping manifests.
Combining versatile mobility and flexible operation with imaging technology proven in hundreds of VACIS systems installed around the globe, the Mobile VACIS system addresses a wide range of inspection scenarios, from container screening to vehicle screening to force protection. The system is an ideal imaging solution for ports, border crossings, or wherever mobile imaging is required.
The Mobile VACIS system can support a wide variety of scanning scenarios. Operating in moving scan mode, the Mobile VACIS system moves past stationary unoccupied vehicles, quickly scanning them from bumper to bumper. Operating in stationary mode, high numbers of trucks with containers can move through the system under their own power.
With a controlled access area only slightly larger than the system itself, the Mobile VACIS system can be used in tight spaces. The system can travel on standard roads to get where it's needed and can be ready for use ten minutes or less after arrival.
Our patented detector technology allows trained inspectors see 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, and the scatter dose to drivers, operators, and bystanders (who are never scanned directly) is even lower.
Leidos is a world leader in nonintrusive imaging technology, with hundreds of systems installed for government and commercial clients around the world. Every VACIS system is backed by our dedicated installation, training, maintenance and technical support.
