VACIS® XPL Passenger Vehicle Scanning System

A compact, ultrahigh-throughput, full-vehicle nonintrusive scanning solution for even the busiest checkpoints


SAIC's VACIS® XPL passenger vehicle scanning system helps customs, military, and security personnel screen 100 percent of vehicles at critical checkpoints. The system assists inspectors in locating even single firearms, as well as ammunition, drugs, and similar items hidden in vehicles. The VACIS XPL system's low-dose technology allows drivers and passengers to remain in their vehicles during the scan, enabling each system to scan hundreds of vehicles per hour with minimal impact on checkpoint operations.


The VACIS XPL system provides a powerful combination of scanning features:

  • Free-flow operation screens vehicles moving at typical checkpoint speeds without requiring them to stop or occupants to exit.
  • Bumper-to-bumper, roof-to-pavement scanning allows every part of the vehicle to be quickly and efficiently screened.
  • High-resolution X-ray imaging assists inspectors in locating metallic threats such as weapons and ammunition.
  • Material discrimination helps inspectors locate organic threats such as explosives and drugs.
  • Compact system fits directly into existing vehicle lanes at most facilities.
  • Remote, centralized image analysis can be performed nearby or hundreds of miles away.
  • Low dose per scan fully complies with dose limits specified in ANSI N43.17.


The VACIS XPL passenger vehicle scanning system continues SAIC's tradition of helping customs, military, and security personnel screen more vehicles for weapons, explosives, drugs, and other suspicious items at critical checkpoints.
