X-ray, physical search and Explosive Trace Detection (ETD) all qualify as successful screening methods to meet the TSA requirement.  Physical search requires manpower and time, and grows more expensive as volume increases. ETD is not always an ideal solution with a guessing game of location swabbing and ongoing consumable costs. We believe x-ray screening provides the most thorough primary screening option at the lowest long term cost. Even with an extended warranty, after 5 years the cost of an x-ray system could be comparable, if not significantly less, than the cost of the ETD alternative and requires no consumables. With the technology and quality of screening, x-ray is the superior solution to cargo screening.

Astrophysics offers an advanced Screener Assist feature that allows operators to input a specific range of atomic numbers that correlate with the threat or contraband they wish to target. Screener Assist increases detection efficiency and throughput and reduces reliance on human interpretation.
