HAWTHORNE, Calif., Oct. 29-- Rapiscan Security Products Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of OSI Systems Inc., said the FAA has awarded OSI Systems an order for five Secure 1000 body scanning systems. The FAA will evaluate the systems' potential to enhance security at the nation's airports. The study will be conducted at the FAA's William J. Hughes Technical Center in Atlantic City, N.J.
The Secure 1000's proprietary computer processing creates a computer image of the scanned individual to show the shape, size and location of objects concealed under the person's clothing. In addition to metallic items, the Secure 1000 is able to detect such items as dynamite, C-4, ceramics, graphite fibers, plastic, packaged narcotics, bundled currency and even wooden objects.
