Roboscan Aeria X-Ray Aircraft Scanning System

Airport & Seaport Security

CSSPakistan proudly announces its association with the Swiss Company Tudor Tech which specializes in Aircraft Security Inspections. Tudor Tech’s specialized system Roboscan Aeria is designed to scan aircrafts ranging from helicopters and small private jets to medium-sized commercial airplanes, giving the operator the capability to detect within minutes threats, illegal or undeclared goods. Roboscan Aeria is the lighter version of Tudor Tech’s main Aircraft Scanning System Aeria DV which can scan the largest of airplanes.

The scanning process is remotely operated inside airport premises with minimal impact for routine operations, without any human exposure to ionising radiations.

Currently, the passengers and their luggage are thoroughly inspected but auxiliary services and private jets, especially those arriving from small private airports with low security level, can be an important vector for contraband with weapons, narcotics and currency, obstructing security officers to fight against it. ROBOSCAN AERIA is the unique tool that closes this gap in aviation security and allowing scanning in minutes the entire aircraft, without crew or passengers on board.

Problem with Physical Security Inspection

The classic method of physical security inspection implies long delays in the streamline airport traffic and reduced chances to find bombs or hidden objects, due to limited access of the security inspectors inside the technical cavities of the fuselage, tail and wings that generates a systemic vulnerability in civil aviation.

The key advantages of TUDOR TECH AERIA DV system

  • Optimized for entire aircraft screening: the vertical and horizontal scanning frames will deliver clear dual-view radiographies of the fuselage and wings, generating high resolution images with unparalleled details, offering to the end users an essential tool for security applications.
  • Complete scan of the aircraft fuselage in a single pass through the screening frame and, depending on the aircraft size, complete wings scan with additional passes.
  • Highly mobile, can be driven on public roads, from one site to another, without any additional infrastructure requirement, being ready to scan in 15 minutes from arrival on site.
  • Fully autonomous, no local resources required for operation.
  • Outdoor, weather-proof operating capability in airport environment.
  • Robotic operation, controlled by one process operator from outside the controlled area, avoiding ionising radiation exposure.
  • Anti-collision system preventing any damage due to human operating error.
  • High quality X-ray images based on state-of-the-art image processing algorithms. One image analysis operator, safely situated outside the controlled area.
  • Fully automated screening process.
  • Certified components for aviation use.
  • Radiation safe for operators and bystanders.
  • Megapixel resolution intelligent video surveillance process.
  • Built-in auto archiving facility and statistic reports capability. Operators can create customized databases including images of scanned aircraft.
  • Data Integration in Command & Control Centres via wireless LAN or broadband INTERNET connection (optional.)
  • Automatic Protection of the Controlled Area (APCA) system.

Safety Features

  • Compliant with Safety of Radiation Generators and Sealed Radioactive Sources, Safety Guide No. RS-G-1.10 from 2006 issued by IAEA and with EURATOM Radiation Protection Directive 96/29.
  • Recommended Exclusion Area during scanning operation of minimum 50m x 50m – Exclusion Area perimeter supervised by the Automatic Protection of the Exclusion Area (APEA) consisting in portable infrared barriers.
  • X-ray generator automatically stops in case of an intrusion.
  • Radiation dose outside the Exclusion Area is less than the legal limit according to International Regulations, namely IAEA 115/1996.
