Vehant strives to work hard and ensure that it caters to such requirements with diligence, banking on our technological advancement. The X-ray baggage scanner is one level above the existing scanners with its dual view technology. We have completely developed the products in-house including the X-ray imaging software which will ensure the security of information.”
He further added, “During the scanning, newly installed large-sized monitors with high resolution images will also ensure quick and instant assessment of any explosive, arms threat etc.”
The machines are designed and manufactured in India under the Make in India initiative of the government of India. The support and service will be easily accessible to the airport authority. With the push from this initiative, Vehant has developed and manufactured technology of global standards required for the airport sector and reached this momentous milestone.
