Mini-Z backscatter x-ray system

Meet the world’s first handheld Z Backscatter imaging system—MINI Z

The MINI Z handheld backscatter X-ray system is a compact, single-sided imager that can be used to scan objects in hard-to-reach areas. Its small size allows for the effective screening of a wide variety of items such as suspicious bags and parcels, walls, furniture, small boats, aircraft, vehicle tyres, and car interiors.

The MINI Z backscatter x-ray system provides effective detection of organic threats, contraband, and explosives, making it the perfect tool for public safety, customs and border enforcement, and security officials.

MINI Z system produces a real-time image of the scan target, highlighting organic materials that transmission X-ray systems can miss, such as explosives, currency, and drugs.

Unlike density meters, trace detectors, or portable transmission X-ray systems, the MINI Z system uses backscatter x-rays to produce an easy-to-interpret image to quickly locate organic contraband in voids and behind shielding (non-metallic and metallic).

MINI Z  is self-contained and does not require set-up: enabling immediate and fast operation. As an operator scans a target, an image appears in real-time on the system’s dedicated tablet.
