Have you seen our new Argus video, showcasing our groundbreaking innovation that promises to transform stand-off imaging of conventional and improvised threats? In this blog post, we’ll delve into the key features and capabilities of the Argus X-ray Camera, showcased in the exciting new video that highlights its unparalleled imaging prowess.

Technology advantage

At the heart of the Argus X-ray Camera is Micro-X’s proprietary carbon nanotube (CNT) technology and WASP backscatter technology, setting it apart from any other x-ray imaging system in the world. This cutting-edge technology allows for significant reductions in size, weight, and power consumption without compromising on image quality. The design eliminates the overheating and oil leakage issues associated with legacy portable x-ray technology during extended duty cycles.

Flexible deployment

Remote stand-off, highly configurable flexibility of high-definition backscatter and traditional transmission x-ray dependent on operational needs, deployable from an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) or as a carry forward system. World-first WASP Technology means Argus can x-ray targets in hard to reach positions without the need to use a separate detector panel.

Reduced cognitive load

Simple ‘one touch’ user interface and quick set up increases operational tempo, enabling rapid deployment and diagnosis by removing the technical and physical restraints typically associated with high-risk search and counter IED operations.

About our WASP Technology

Wide Area Scattered Projection (WASP) Technology is a new and unique approach to backscatter imaging. By using a proprietary design created and manufactured in South Australia by Micro-X, WASP produces high-definition images of an entire target, penetrating hardened targets from a fixed stand-off. Micro-X’s unique wide area backscatter imaging technology removes the need for a separate detector panel to be placed behind an object, or the need for an operator to move a backscatter device across a target, allowing the operator to quickly and safety diagnose threats from a distance.
