Additionally, the Eagle R60HS is designed to detect and identify a wide range of threats and suspect materials including contraband goods such as narcotics and weapons. Using a high power 6 MeV X-ray source, a clear X-ray image of even the densest rail cargo is produced – which would otherwise have to be manually inspected. The system can X-ray a forty-foot container in only 0.8 of a second.
