The Guardian system is a military-grade DR system designed especially for security applications. Dustproof and waterproof, with MIL-SPEC and IP-67 ratings, the Guardian was designed to meet the extreme conditions of security and military missions. Military X-ray inspections are commonly conducted under stressful and dangerous situations. In these situations, X-ray images must be captured rapidly and analyzed in a short time frame. To address this challenge, the Guardian system offers ultra-fast deployment, one-time downrange, and a high-resolution digital image captured with one pulse only, as well as advanced image editing software.
