Baggage Scanners in Uganda are commonly found at the Airport and high security institutions like Embassies. They are a Single Energy type with bird eye view perspective  when  baggage goes into scanning terminal, the X-Ray machine will scan and show picture on the device’s screen. Inspectors can setup the screen for 2 modes perfect view mode (Inorganic materials  will be displayed in blue, organic materials will be displayed in orange and the mixed materials will be displayed in green) and black & white mode (seeing the object shape clearer). After finish scanning, the device will send the scanning picture to ZKBio SIS software for historical data.

Perfect View Mode

Inorganic materials will be displayed in blue, organic materials will be displayed in orange and the mixed materials will be displayed in green.

Black & White Mode

this shows the picture in black and white color to see the object shape clearer.

Baggage scanners, also known as X-ray baggage inspection systems, are sophisticated devices used in airports, train stations, and other secure facilities to inspect the contents of luggage for security purposes. Here’s a general description of how they work:

  1. X-ray Generation: The heart of a baggage scanner is an X-ray generator. This device produces high-energy electromagnetic radiation in the form of X-rays.
  2. X-ray Beams: The generated X-rays are directed towards the baggage being scanned. The X-ray beams penetrate through the luggage and interact with the materials inside.
  3. Attenuation: As the X-rays pass through the luggage, they are attenuated or absorbed to varying degrees depending on the density and atomic number of the materials they encounter. Different materials absorb X-rays differently: dense materials like metals absorb more X-rays, while less dense materials like clothing or plastic absorb fewer.
  4. Detectors: On the opposite side of the baggage from the X-ray source, there are detectors. These detectors capture the attenuated X-rays after they pass through the luggage.
  5. Image Reconstruction: The data collected by the detectors are sent to a computer, where sophisticated algorithms reconstruct a 2D or 3D image of the contents of the luggage based on the differences in X-ray attenuation. This image provides a detailed view of the items inside the luggage.
  6. Image Analysis: Security personnel analyze the reconstructed image to identify any suspicious items or potential threats. They look for objects that could pose a security risk, such as weapons, explosives, or prohibited items.
  7. Alerts and Interventions: If any suspicious items are detected, the system alerts security personnel, who may further inspect the luggage manually or with additional scanning techniques. Depending on the severity of the threat, appropriate action will be taken, which may include confiscating the item, conducting additional screening, or involving law enforcement.
  8. Radiation Safety: Baggage scanners are designed to operate within strict safety guidelines to minimize radiation exposure to both passengers and operators. Modern scanners employ various safety features and shielding to ensure radiation levels remain within acceptable limits.
