OSI Systems Inc., a Hawthorne, Calif.-based manufacturer of specialized electronic systems and components, said it has been awarded "a multimillion-dollar contract from a prominent customs agency based in Europe for high-speed-rail inspection solutions using the Rapiscan Eagle R60 rail-scanner platform."
The rail-inspection system will allow cargo trains to be screened as they travel at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour, according to the company.
The contract went to OSI's security division, Rapiscan Systems.
"Rapiscan Systems is the only security screening company that offers ultrahigh-speed comprehensive inspection of rail-borne commerce, which is an increasingly important part of today's global supply chain," Rapiscan Systems President Ajay Mehra asserted. "We look forward to this implementation in an identified growth region."
