Vidisco, an Israeli supplier of mobile X-ray solutions for detection and identification for armies, security forces and law enforcement authorities, unveils the Guardian - a system specially developed to enable the safe identification and neutralization of various types of ammunition in the field.
Recently, the system was used by elite units in the IDF in northern Israel to locate and neutralize Russian ammunition found in the field.
According to Vidisco, the Guardian used in Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) missions provides an accurate, high-resolution image of the exact state of the ammunition and its contents, from a safe distance of hundreds of meters and at the push of a button. Accurate imaging is also possible when the ammunition has a thick metal casing, or when it is placed behind a wall or inside a vehicle.
The compact and mobile X-Ray system can be deployed and operated even in harsh environments and in all weather conditions. The Guardian allows the force in the field to manually defuse the explosive devices, without endangering themselves, by performing in a pre-selected area for this task.
