X-Ray your plane

Shown at the Counter Terror Expo in London last week the Romanian built Roboscan2M Aeria claims to be the very first solution for actual aircraft security inspection, intended to scan aircraft ranging from small private jets to medium-sized commercial planes, giving the operator the capability to detect threats, illegal or undeclared goods, drugs and explosives.

The scanning process is remotely operated on the apron 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 and so far security officers could do very little to fight against it.

Roboscan 2M Aeria  is said to be so sophisticated that it can find a bunch of keys hidden away in the cabin. 

It is claimed to be a unique tool, closing this gap in aviation security, allowing scanning in minutes over the entire aircraft without crew or passengers on board.  The cost is US$3m per unit.  www.roboscan.com

www.roboscan.com appears to be the website for an anti-virus software company. Are they branching out into aircraft X-ray machines or is this the wrong URL?
