The M-SCAN is remotely operated self-propelled scanner designed to optimize security checks at ports, airports and border crossings. It reduces the need for manual inspection of complete trucks (cabin included), containers and vehicles by verifying manifests and checking for threats such as explosives, narcotics, weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) and contraband.

The M-SCAN uses betatron type accelerator with high energy level up to 9 MeV, allowing steel penetration 320 mm (standard) up to 340 mm (typical). A high maximum throughput of 25 trucks per hour can be achieved in scan mode; and a maximum of 150 trucks per hour in pass through mode.

High performance imaging equips operators with detailed radioscopic images of the container or vehicle to generate rapid and reliable results.

To military standards - 50 up to 70 degrees cyclic mode. Operators and image database are protected in case of anyincident on site.

Operators work outside safety zone. No danger to be radiated. No special permits and regular medical checks etc. Easy to handle. Possible to use multiple scanners close by each other on one site. Easy to extend a scanning capacity on the site of the same dimensions. The same crew can operate multiple scanners.

Based on a trailer chassis, the M-SCAN systems can be towed from site to site by a standard tractor as required. Road clearance confirmed with all global road regulations. It offers ease of operation and a small footprint with minimal external infrastrutcure reqiuirements; and yet meets the most demanding international security screening standards.
