The Cayman Islands Customs Department has awarded Smiths Detection a contract to supply it with various cargo inspection systems to stem the flow of weapons, narcotics and contraband in and out of the country. The order includes the company’s high-energy HCVM, which is capable of screening containers and vehicles. The system includes viZual threat identification technology, which distinguishes between organic and inorganic substances by using color-coded material discrimination. The order also includes HI-SCAN cargo inspection systems. “This is Smiths Detection’s fifth high energy system deployed in the region,” says Eduardo Parodi, director of Sales for Latin American & Caribbean. “All our systems have had a strong history of return on investment for their end users in terms of narcotics seizures as well as revenue collection.” The order covers one HCVM 6032 L mobile vehicle X-Ray scanning system, two HI-SCAN 9075 X-Ray systems and one HI-SCAN 145180 X-Ray system.
