Rapiscan Systems is pleased to announce its selection as the winner of the Best Explosive Detection Product or Solution at Government Security News (GSN) magazine’s Homeland Security Awards gala. The GSN Homeland Security Awards celebrate the ongoing public-private partnership between all branches of federal, state and local government in the United States and the private sector vendors of IT security and physical security products, solutions and technologies, whose combined efforts successfully defend and protect the nation's people, property and way of life.
The awards were handed out at a gala dinner and awards ceremony, where a large audience of federal, state, county, municipal officials, active and retired military officers and vendors of IT and physical security products celebrated the outstanding achievements of security vendors and government agencies.
Rapiscan was named the winner in the Vendors of Physical Security Products and Solutions category for their Eagle M45 cargo and vehicle inspection unit.
The Rapiscan Eagle M45 is part of Rapiscan’s premier mobile cargo screening line. A self-contained mobile cargo-scanning unit capable of driving on public roads, the Eagle M45 scans trucks and cargo containers to verify the contents and to identify the presence of hidden contraband, such as explosives, narcotics and weapons.
“We are honored to be chosen as the winner of the best explosive detection solution at the GSN Homeland Security Awards,” said Ajay Mehra, president of Rapiscan Systems. “The Eagle M45 is an integral part of our mobile cargo screening line and provides flexible screening options at almost any location – including seaports, border crossings and roadside checkpoints. Receiving this award is a validation of our commitment to developing quality security solutions for our customers.”
