The Port Authority of Jamaica is adding additional freight pallet inspection systems developed by Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC).
SAIC said its security and transportation technology business was recently awarded a new contract by Jamaica’s port authority to supply and install two additional Pallet VACIS inspection systems at the Kingston Transshipment Port Jamaica. The port authority already uses five Pallet VACIS units, put into operation between 2004 and 2005.
SAIC’s VACIS gamma ray-based inspection systems are designed for non-intrusive inspection of the contents of trucks, containers and cargo. The unit consists of a self-contained gamma ray imaging system designed to quickly image fully loaded pallets or pallet-sized container, the company said.
