HAWTHORNE, Calif., 21 March 2006. Rapiscan Systems, a division of OSI Systems Inc., has received a contract for approximately $5 million from an undisclosed U.S. Government agency to provide multiple mobile cargo inspection systems.

The self-contained, mobile inspection systems will be deployed internationally and used to screen trucks, cargo containers, and passenger vehicles for explosive materials and other contraband.

Delivery of these systems is expected to be completed in the fall of 2006.

The Rapiscan Gamma product line provides approximately 170mm to 190mm of steel penetration, which enables it to detect hidden contraband, including weapons, explosives, drugs, undeclared goods, and weapons of mass destruction.

The Eagle Mobile is a high-performance 4.5 MV x-ray inspection system, providing approximately 280mm to 300mm of steel penetration to rapidly and accurately inspect containers and trucks at seaports and land border crossings.

The Eagle's x-ray imaging system can produce a high-resolution image of a 20-foot container in less than 10 seconds. Even dense cargo can be clearly imaged reducing the need for time consuming manual inspections.
