SureScan x1000, next generation technology and design built for accurate detection, at an overall lower cost of ownership.

The SureScan x1000 is the first TSA certified and now, ECAC EDS Standard 3.1 multi-energy static gantry explosive detection system (EDS) for checked baggage screening, representing the next generation in EDS detection technology and design.

Through the application of advanced science and technology, the x1000 meets current detection demands and is adaptable to meet the evolving threats around the world. With its innovative use of proven computed tomography (CT) and implementation of multi-energy detection for atomic number analysis, the x1000 delivers low false alarm rates, and a high level of accuracy of current and emerging threat detection, including home made explosives (HME’s.) The combination of these features allows the x1000 to adapt and, in essence, future proofs the product throughout its life cycle.

Designed from the ground up, for checked baggage screening, with efficiencies in operation and performance in a checked baggage screening environment, the x1000 is specifically engineered to be an economical solution over the system’s entire life cycle.
