Vidisco USA Inc. announced today that it was awarded a contract valued at approximately $27 million USD, to supply portable digital Guardian 12” X-ray systems for the United States Air Force.
Vidisco’s portable X-ray solutions have been selected by numerous military and law enforcement agencies around the world, including the United States Marine Corps and various army and police forces in Israel, France, Italy, Japan, and Finland.
The Guardian system is a military-grade DR system designed especially for security applications. Dustproof and waterproof, with MIL-SPEC and IP-67 ratings, the Guardian was designed to meet the extreme conditions of security and military missions.

The Guardian includes additional optional accessories, such as integration with robots, a dual energy module for organic/inorganic differentiation, and an option that allows fusion of X-ray and visible images using Augmented Reality (AR), as well as a slider solution for large object scanning, 3D scanning (XAR), and more.
