About Rapidscan Systems

As the world’s leading security screening provider, Rapidscan Systems provides state of the art products, solutions and services that meet our customers’ most demanding threat detection needs while improving operational efficiency.

Since 1993, we have been a proud and trusted partner of government agencies and private security operations around the world, built around simple principles:



Rapidscan Systems cargo and vehicle inspection products have been deployed in a variety of government and private sector applications, winning out on the basis of their exceptional threat detection capabilities. Among other benefits — such as speed, reliability, cost-effectiveness, and ease-of-use — our cargo and vehicle inspection systems are also backed by an unparalleled global support network. All Rapidscan cargo and vehicle inspection products reflect our corporate commitment to excellence in imaging performance, design, ease-of-use and quality.  This commitment results in products that have best-in-class imaging, low cost of ownership, high reliability and high operator satisfaction.

Rapidscan’s cargo and vehicle inspection systems are proven in challenging applications at seaports, border crossings and critical facilities around the world.  Inspectors use our superior images to combat smuggling and find hidden contraband, including explosives, weapons, narcotics and weapons of mass destruction.  Customers can choose products with unique features and scanners that operate in different modes to easily adapt to changing operational requirements.  With support from Rapidscan’s global service network, our cargo and vehicle inspection products deliver value to our customers from the first day of operation throughout their lifetime.


Additionally, as screening protocols in different countries continue to evolve in response to current events, Rapidscan’s products and tools can evolve with changing needs. Scanners are mobile—they can move as security lines relocate. They come in many different sizes, to allow for small parcels and large, wrapped pallets, and even irregularly sized objects that don’t fit in typical scanners. And Rapidscan is trusted; its aviation screening solutions have been approved by agencies in the United States, the UK, France, and Canada.

Rapidscan goes beyond inspection. Our Advanced Technology Options, such as NARCScan, Target and Threat Image Protection all work with our devices to enhance screening effectiveness. We’re working on ways to detect threats before they become problems to keep our airports, borders, and buildings safer.
