ThreatScan®-LS3 is a compact yet powerful x-ray scanning system that can penetrate 34mm steel at 120kV as standard.  The 305mm x 256mm imaging area enables typical bags and packages to be scanned in one scan.



Designed for rapid deployment and ease of use, ThreatScan® systems operate with the intuitive and user-friendly ThreatSpect software to produce high quality, sub-millimetre resolution images.



The ThreatScan®-LS3 is designed so that the operative can achieve accurate high quality images quickly and efficiently.



Quick and simple to deploy, the system produces high quality real-time x-ray images for rapid and accurate decision making. The compact detector panel is positioned behind the target; the generator is placed in front.


The scan is activated from the laptop imaging station. The smaller 305mm x 256mm imaging area of the ThreatScan®-LS3 still enables the operator to scan suspect items in a single scan. Penetrating up to 34mm steel at 120kV the LS3 produces sub-millimetre resolution images. A range of sophisticated image processing functions, including materials discrimination, pan, zoom, DeepFocus™, 3D Emboss, measurement and annotation, coupled with high quality images enable the operator to interpret the image quickly and accurately.



The software can also communicate the image on screen to a remote command centre and save images in JPEG and other common file formats. Ideal for use by First Responders, EOD teams, Counter Surveillance, and Customs and Security Operatives.

• A compact detector panel

• A portable and robust x-ray generator

• A laptop imaging station

• Batteries and chargers
