THOR LVX Container Scanner

   

Why is THOR different?

 

Compared to current technologies such as nuclear magnetic resonance and X-ray detection, THOR systems use direct Photonuclear detection. This unique technology is capable of all barriers and identifies explosives at the Molecular level. When exposed to microbursts of radiation, these illegal substances produce a unique signature allowing the system to not only detect the presence of substances but also to identify their chemical composition and quantity. The system can be expanded to detect the presence of nuclear material, narcotics and targeted chemicals and Biological agent.

 

What is Photonuclear Detection?

 

Electron beams are accelerated to speed by magnetic forces and sent in 16 millisecond pulses into the container being examined. Using this method, objects containing carbon and nitrogen – basic building blocks of virtually all explosives – will emit gamma energy.

This type and amount of energy received by the detectors is compared to database matching contraband substances to their molecular profile.
