Мобильные досмотровые комплексы

Инспекционно-досмотровый комплекс (ИДК) способен выявлять тайники с наркотиками, взрывчатыми веществами, оружием, боеприпасами, обнаруживать нелегально пересекающих границу людей.

Мобильный рентгеновский комплекс HCV-Mobile сконструирован на базе автомобиля «Мерседес». Он укомплектован рентгеновским генератором, скорость развертывания которого составляет 20-25 минут. Мощность генератора позволяет рассмотреть в самом центре полностью груженой фуры замаскированный опасный груз: система обладает проникающей способностью через сталь толщиной до 270 мм.

Установка способна за час пропускать до 25-30 грузовиков и позволяет значительно сократить временные затраты на досмотр большегрузных автомобилей. Стоимость каждого комплекса составляет 100 млн. рублей.
