Gemini: Unique multi-technology parcel inspection systems
Gemini is a multi-technology X-ray parcel and baggage inspection system, which combines AS&E's Z Backscatter™ technology with dual-energy transmission for superior threat detection. AS&E's Z Backscatter technology provides enhanced detection of organic materials, such as explosives (including sheet and liquid explosives), drugs, and plastic weapons, which are easily missed by transmission-only systems in cluttered parcels. Z Backscatter technology's photo-like images are easy to interpret, thereby speeding analysis time, decreasing bags flagged for secondary screening, and reducing operator fatigue. Dual-energy transmission provides outstanding image quality, and enables the quick detection of a wide variety of threats such as guns, knives, and wires for Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDS). In addition, dual-energy offers organic and metallic discrimination.
