TSA Systems is now a part of Rapiscan Systems.
TSA Systems specializes in the design and manufacture of nuclear radiation portal monitors and detectors, providing radiation measurement solutions and detection technology in controlling SNM (special nuclear materials). TSA's nuclear radiation monitor incorporates advanced nuclear sensing techniques with a product line specializing in pedestrian radiation portal monitors, vehicle radiation portal monitors and train radiation portal monitors each with Radioactive Alarm and Video Event Notification or RAVEN software capability.
TSA offers RAVEN software for use with the radiation portal monitors that provide a networking of multiple radiation portal monitors at various locations with a central control station. The software creates a network for establishing a radioactive alarm event notification procedure with video and data support.
TSA Systems designs and manufactures nuclear radiation portal monitors, hand held nuclear radiation monitors and measurement systems, nuclear radiation control equipment, gamma detectors and neutron detectors.
TSA Systems specializes in pedestrian and vehicle radiation portal monitors that will achieve ASTM Standard C 1169 Category II sensitivity.
TSA also features inexpensive personnel radiation portal monitors, for situations that require a semi-portable monitor. While this (PM-702B) radiation portal monitor has adequate sensitivity for security applications, it was primarily designed for use in hospitals, laboratories, and other locations where radioactive SNM materials need to be monitored.
Train radiation portal monitors that will achieve ASTM Standard C 1169 Category II sensitivity are also manufactured by TSA Systems.
TSA produces multiple radiation waste monitors,for example, radiation waste bag monitors, radiation waste box monitors and radiation waste barrel monitors.
TSA Systems is dedicated to preventing terrorists and terrorists weapons, including weapons of mass destruction, from entering this country. Nuclear and radiological materials are of particular concern because of their potential to harm large numbers of people and disrupt the U.S. economy. The deployment of radiation portal monitors is an important strategy feature to prevent the introduction of nuclear and radiological materials into this country.
TSA Systems' expertise includes X-ray, beta, gamma, alpha, gamma radiation, neutron radiation, military instruments, nuclear contraband, cargo inspection, terrorism, dirty bombs, counterterrorism, SNM, special nuclear materials, security monitors and radiation detector technology.
A radiation portal monitor is a detection device that provides a passive, non-intrusive means to screen trucks and other conveyances for the presence of nuclear and radiological materials. These systems are capable of detecting various types of radiation emanating from nuclear devices, dirty bombs, special nuclear materials, natural sources, and isotopes commonly used in medicine and industry.
Portal radiation monitors do not emit any radiation. They are completely safe for anyone passing by them. Portal radiation monitors are passive detectors of radiation, not emitters of radiation. Portal radiation monitors are very common in multiple industries, however are used at border crossings to ensure nuclear and radiological materials do not illegally enter the United States. Portal radiation monitors are often used to ensure that radioactive materials are not improperly removed from the facility.
