Increasing prison security using
portable X-ray systems


Prison security requirements are increasing as technology and prisoner’s sophistication evolve.

A prison in Columbia needed a solution to inspect the outside of the entrance, where dozens of new prisoners arrive with large bags containing their private stuff: food, sheets, mattresses and electric devices, which will not fit in the standard luggage scanners.

Another request from a prison in Guatemala was to scan the cell walls to make sure no money, weapon or mobile phones are hidden inside.

The solution for both missions and others is a portable X-ray system that can be deployed everywhere in minutes and is able to scan objects in different dimensions, shapes and density.

Using lightweight yet strong battery-operated portable X-ray sources allow to penetrate even thick walls, and a sophisticated software installed on a laptop allows to enhance and save the images so they can be used as evidence if needed. In order to make the process faster, it is possible to combine up to 9 flexible imaging plates, each in size of 36×43 cm and scan them all together in a very high resolution to cover large areas.

The system is designed to work in every weather condition or terrain and all parts are packed in a rugged and portable case. It is safe and only requires to keep several meters distance during operation. VCsecurity can offer several solutions to fit every client needs and budget.

Lennart Schulenburg, Director of Sales & Marketing, says “By relevant innovations and passionate experts we want to offer our security customers an outstanding support”.

The updated systems will provide the end user with a user-friendly interface that allows rapid image and highest quality. The goal is to provide a better tool to the end users that makes their mission on the ground a more efficient and safer process.
