NightHawk XP (140 keV) Handheld Backscatter
The Viken NightHawk XP like the HBI-120 is a rugged, handheld x-ray imager that enables users to quickly and cost-effectively find concealed narcotics; cash, fraudulent payment cards, and other monetary instruments; bulk explosives; and other contraband through automotive body panels, upholstery, drywall, and a wide variety of other materials. The NightHawk’s unique design and simple Android™ user interface enables law enforcement, customs and border patrol officers, and security forces to quickly and easily locate concealed threats and contraband in motor vehicles, ships and watercraft, aircraft, steel drums, trash receptacles, mailboxes, abandoned bags, and countless other locations.
Weighing only 3.6 kg, the NightHawk XP scans objects using a miniaturised, 140 keV x-ray generator that produces a raster-scanning pencil beam of x-rays. As the NightHawk XP is moved over the object, a scanned x-ray image of the object is displayed in real-time on NightHawk XP’s high-resolution LCD touchscreen and is simultaneously saved in both tiff and jpeg format in the instrument’s memory.
The NightHawk capability can be increase by using the Broadwing-LAD accessories
