Features & Technical Specifications

The XTE system comprises two pallets: XTE 1 and XTE 2, loaded with instruments and material simulating shapes and compositions, including contraband and security threats, found in air, sea and land freight.

Designed and developed by the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) to handle large X-ray scanners ranging in energies between 3MeV to 9MeV and beyond, the system is flexible and can be tuned to suit a single application as well as a range of X-ray and gamma transport security scanners.
