X-Ray System for Vehicles

steep GmbH supplies the Bundeswehr with a “vehicle x-ray system” for mission in Mali. A corresponding contract with the Bundesamt für Ausrüstung, Informationstechnik und Nutzung der Bundeswehr (BAAINBw) was concluded on July 8th, 2022.

The Bundeswehr receives a mobile system intended for UN deployment in Mali, with which vehicles up to truck size can be X-rayed and checked for safety. On the initiative of the Bundeswehr Operations Command and as an urgent procurement of equipment required in action, the final coordination of the contract ready for signature by the BAAINBw took place within just one week – despite currently existing global challenges in supply chains and price developments. This way, the system can be deployed more quickly to create additional security for the soldiers.

The vehicle x-ray system is capable of examining vehicles up to a height of about 4.50 m. It consists of three commercially available vehicle scanners Eagle M60 from the company Rapiscan. Steel walls up to 30 cm thickness are no obstacle to recognizing and identifying individual objects. Even the smallest wire of a possible booby trap can be displayed. The scanner can distinguish organic and inorganic substances by colour, which makes the detection of explosives, for example, much safer.

Parallel to vehicle inspection, the driver can be examined radiation-protected for hidden objects on the body and in hand luggage, and biometric features, such as fingerprints and iris scans, can be processed. Among other things, a metal detector sheet, a baggage X-ray scanner and also a millimetre wave scanner, colloquially known by airports as a “naked scanner”, are used.

The mobile system is installed in air-conditioned 20-foot containers and can be transported universally by land, air or sea. A system consists of the fluoroscopy truck and a remote control unit (container), in which the personnel can monitor the control from up to 500 m away. A server container completes the system.
