TSA Certified, x1000 Multi-Energy Stationary Gantry, CT Explosives Detection System
Built from the ground up for checked baggage screening, the most unique, high performing and economical solution in the market today
Next-Generation Design and Technology: Through the application of advanced engineering and technology, the x1000 can meet current needs and adapt to emerging threats

SureScan™ Corporation is an emerging leader and global company bringing advanced, explosive detection technology and superior manufacturing to the homeland security marketplace. In May 2015, SureScan Corporation was awarded an additional $1M in government funding for research in advancing explosive detection technology. With its innovative designs and ongoing government support, SureScan continues to lead in the development of advanced security technology, providing cost effective solutions that meet the most rigorous quality and performance standards.

SureScan is solely focused on providing explosive detection solutions. The SureScan x1000 checked baggage screening system, is engineered and designed according to SureScan’s philosophy, that technology should be designed with the customer in mind.

SureScan is a team of highly educated experts devoted to providing customers with the most innovative technology with lower maintenance and lifecycle costs. The SureScan x1000 checked baggage screening solution allows baggage to be screened efficiently and effectively and helps keep travelers safe.

Built from the ground up specifically for checked baggage screening rather than as an adaptation of a medical technology like many systems, the x1000 is suited to the airport environment and designed with a baggage-handling interface in mind. Unlike a medical environment, baggage-handling areas in airports are constrained, dusty environments with operation every day, 365 days a year. Our scanning solutions are designed to install and function seamlessly in this environment. SureScan is the clear choice for baggage screening because it is a company that goes above and beyond industry requirements and expectations.
