A contract with the United Nations for the supply of four (4) baggage X-ray scanners as part of their on-going support to the Royal Jordanian Government’s humanitarian refugee operations (Syrian Refugees Affairs Directorate) at two camps in northern Jordan. The scanners will be used to assist in security checks, processing the vast influx of migrants from the Syrian/Iraqi borders and ensuring that the refugees living in the camps have a peaceful and secure environment.
Produced in the Philippines and then shipped through to Jordan in crated containers, the units offer a clear picture of hidden explosives, weapons, drugs and other contraband in hand-carried and small to mid-sized items. A dual-view scanning system displays two separate, perpendicular X-ray images to provide a complete inspection in a single scan.
Installation and training was provided at the refugee camps for SRAD Officers who will be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the x-ray scanning systems and the overall security of the camps. The manufacturer’s engineers flew in from the Philippines and Dubai (as well as with Unit Export staff in attendance) to undertake the services at both camps. Additionally, a local engineer based in Amman was given intensive training to ensure the provision of on-going after sales and technical support for the units, ensuring a quick response time in the case of any issues.
