Rapiscan Secure 1000 Series
Rapiscan Secure 1000 Dual Pose
- Hands-Off Screening
- Quick and Effective
- Ideal for High Security Needs
The Rapiscan Secure 1000® is the most effective and most widely deployed image-based people screening solution. The Secure 1000 produces high resolution images that enable the operator to easily identify concealed threat and contraband items. The Rapiscan Secure 1000 is ideal for high security environments because both organic (e.g. solid and liquid explosives, narcotics, ceramic weapons) and inorganic (e.g. metal) materials are apparent in the image.
The Rapiscan Secure 1000’s patented technology is composed of an ultra low-dose X-ray source that images backscattered X-rays through to a remote operator’s workstation. Using the Secure 1000’s imaging capability your security screeners will be able to detect concealed objects without direct contact. With the built in software filter, the operator does not see the identity of the person being screened. The Raspiscan Secure 1000 provides the most effective people screening to eliminate risk from any concealed threat.
With more than 200 systems deployed, the Rapiscan Secure 1000 has been successfully tested and accepted at military checkpoints, airports and correctional facilities around the globe. The proven safe and reliable Secure 1000 has easy to use operator software that provides the ability to detect even the smallest hidden item on a person. Configurable to achieve throughput up to 200pph the Secure 1000 provides high throughput, high quality imaging and reliable people screening for even the most demanding screening environments.
Rapiscan Secure 1000 SP
- TSA Qualified
- Optimized Checkpoint Throughput
- Comprehensive Threat Detection
The Secure 1000 SP combines unparalleled threat detection with optimized throughput.
The Secure 1000 SP uses backscatter technology as well as Rapiscan proprietary image processing software and an operator-friendly interface to rapidly and comprehensively screen passengers for a wide range of potential threats including liquids, contraband, ceramics, explosives, narcotics, concealed currency and weapons.
US TSA Qualification: The US TSA has tested, evaluated and qualified the Secure 1000 SP in aviation checkpoints. The Secure 1000 SP complies with U.S. and international health, safety and privacy requirements.
Front and Back Scanning for Comprehensive Threat Detection: The Secure 1000 SP generates a front and back scan simultaneously, which eliminates blind spots and potential opportunities for concealment, thereby increasing checkpoint security.
Advanced Imaging Detects Range of Threats: The Secure 1000 SP can detect small objects and threats concealed on a passenger. It can detect organic and inorganic threats, metals and non-metallic objects. With one system, customers can detect concealed liquids, ceramics, weapons, plastic explosives, narcotics, metals, contraband, currency etc.
Single Pose Configuration Streamlines Checkpoint Operations: Because the Secure 1000 SP requires only one pose with no additional movement by the passenger, a full scan can be completed in seconds, thereby streamlining checkpoint operations and improving passenger satisfaction.
How Does a Secure 1000 Work?
The Secure 1000 bounces very low dose of x-rays off of a person to generate an image. This image is then analyzed by an operator to identify concealed potential threats.
The United States Department of Homeland Security has certified the Rapiscan Secure 1000 as an approved product for homeland security.

Rapiscan Secure 1000 Health and Safety Information
Rapiscan stands behind the safety and effectiveness of all our technologies. As an important part of the nation’s transportation security system, we are committed to protecting the traveling public by ensuring security officers have access to a proven security imaging system that has been thoroughly tested by government regulators and independent experts.
Rapiscan’s systems like the Secure 1000, often referred to as full-body scanners, airport body scanners or TSA body scanners, include safeguards that are designed to make the devices safe. In compliance with government health and safety requirements, these systems are not capable of producing exposures at unsafe levels and would shut down before acceptable exposure standards could be reached.
EXCEEDING STANDARDS, PROTECTING THE PUBLIC
All of our systems comply with U.S. and international health and safety requirements. In addition:
In government tests, x-ray energy generated by the Rapiscan Secure 1000 has been shown to fall well below widely-accepted and established standards for scan exposure.
The systems are monitored at 10-millisecond intervals – 100 times a second – to affirmatively determine normal operation of multiple parameters. If a single parameter is operating outside the systems’ tolerances, the systems immediately default to a power-down state, and shut down.
SCANNING TECHNOLOGY IS SAFE
Independent research studies confirm the results of safety testing performed by government agencies. These results show that Rapiscan’s body scanning technology is safe.
A person would have to receive more than 1,000 screenings to begin to approach the annual exposure limits.
The American College of Radiology reports a traveler would have to get more than 1,000 scans in a year to reach the effective dose of radiation equal to one chest x-ray.
Based on these testing and study results, pregnant women, children and the elderly, or people with special medical needs can safely undergo a scanner screening.
The latest report published by the European Union’s Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR), confirms that the use of backscatter X-ray technology in body scanners is safe to use at security checkpoints.
The SCENIHR reports states that, with respect to the Secure 1000:
· The doses delivered by backscatter X-ray scanners are too low to cause any observable effects on the human body
· The dose levels are too low to form a scientific basis for making any quantitative risk estimates
OUR COMPANY’S ONGOING COMMITMENT
Rapiscan tests every system before it leaves the factory, and our technicians conduct regular surveys of each system after it is deployed to the field.
The tests we have conducted confirm that Rapiscan scanners produce negligible amounts of radiation, far below the widely-accepted standards for human exposure.
You can be confident that the Secure 1000 has been thoroughly tested and is safe.
