Big Brother's X-ray Vans




This technology would be at least 25 years old by now, I'm betting, but only recently released commercially:







From the website of the corporation behind these things:

"AS&E X-ray inspection systems are used by governments and corporations around the world to combat terrorism, drug and weapons smuggling, illegal immigration, and trade fraud.



AS&E specializes in detection technologies that can uncover dangerous and elusive threats, including explosives, plastic and metal weapons, and radioactive devices, such as dirty bombs and nuclear WMD. AS&E systems also detect commonly smuggled goods, such as drugs and alcohol. These X-ray systems are deployed worldwide at ports and borders, and military and high-threat facilities.



Our signature technology - Z Backscatter - gives our systems unparalleled detection capabilities, making it the technology of choice when the highest levels of security are required. Our elite client base includes the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (including U.S. Customs and Border Protection) and the U.S. Department of Defense, among numerous other federal agencies. International customers include Her Majesty's Customs & Excise (UK), Hong Kong Customs, the Royal Thai Police (Thailand), New Zealand Customs, and the Port of Sokhna (Egypt)."



Here's a comment from someone who used one in Iraq from the DEFENSETECH website:

I used these vans when I deployed with the 1st Cavalry. We were responsible for entry control points to key facilities, like Baghdad Airport. The vans were a tremendous asset, incredibly accurate.

A prime example: Inside one vehicle we scanned was a gentleman who had been shot by insurgents. The little buggers got him seven times, and he somehow survived. He lived at a village near the airport, and went through our check point. We were able to see the metal still in his body, while he was still sitting in his car. The vehicle didn't have to even stop.


But apparently we needn't worry about investing in lead underwear just yet, because according to an article from the Health Physics Society that they link to from their website, "At this time, no other technologies ...offer the same security benefits of backscatter x-ray security scans...The risk to any individual from frequent backscatter x-ray scans is truly trivial."

"AS&E - When you can't afford to compromise."
