Mobile X-Ray for
Deployed Medical Facilities
The Rover product concept was developed under a contract from the Australian Department of Defence to fulfil a need for a full performance digital medical x-ray imager, light enough to be used in deployed medical facilities.
Key Design Features:
• Full trauma imaging capability 40-110kv, 100mAs;
• Ultra-light weight at 95kg;
• Ground Clearance allows for 75mm step up;
• Operation on uneven ground;
• Spare battery tray swap out in under a minute;
• Hard shell reusable plastic packaging for military transport;
The Mobile Backscatter Imager (MBI)
Today Bomb Disposal Technicians expose themselves to life threatening situations in order to capture the high-resolution x-ray image that they need to assess and make-safe potential terrorist weapons. The Australian Defence contracted Micro-X to demonstrate a proof of concept for stand-off imaging of Improvised Explosive Devices. This contract was successfully completed and proved resolution of less than 0.5mm. Now the miniature MBI product is under development, in a configuration which allows it to be carried in the jaws of a deployed in any standard Explosive Ordinance Disposal robot, sending high quality x-ray images to a remote operator control station.
Mobile Baggage Scanner
The UK Department for Transport’s Future Airport Security Solutions Program plans to address the barriers to innovation in aviation security. Micro-X has been awarded a contract under the Finding Explosive in Electronics part of this program. Under this program, Micro-X will undertake proof of concept imaging and develop a prototype for a combination projection backscatter imager with the goal of detecting small amounts of explosive materials concealed within electronics within passenger’s carry on luggage. Micro-X envisions that the unit developed under this program could form the core sensor and imaging module in a highspeed future three dimensional check-point baggage CT scanner to meet the evolving European and US standards.
