Chile to install SOTER RS Body Scanner at International Airport

Netherlands based security manufacturer, OD Security announced today that Chilean Customs will be installing two SOTER RS Through-Body Scanners at Santiago International Airport.

Operated by the Chilean National Customs Service the main purpose of the SOTER RS will be to identify drugs smugglers arriving in the country via the airport.

The SOTER RS is a low dosage full body scanner which combines ultra low radiation with maximum visibility, for use at airports to scan suspected drug smugglers. A whole body, through clothing scan is complete within 10 seconds.

Within those seconds the SOTER RS reveals hidden items, typically items such as narcotics, explosives, weapons and precious stones. It can detect non-metallic objects hidden under clothes, in natural cavities or within the human body. The SOTER shows a clear difference between human tissue and other materials. Even ingested or camouflaged items will be shown.

Previously, these items could only be detected by highly intrusive, expensive and time consuming total body searches.

Swallowing capsules containing narcotics is a favourite modus operandi of drug smugglers, and it is hoped that the installation of the SOTER RS full body scanner at Bandaranaike Airport will increase the detection rate of "swallowed drugs" in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Customers Officers can operate the SOTER RS without the need for any formal specialist training, or medical training to recognise drugs.

SOTER RS is successfully deployed in prisons, in airports, detention centres, police and customs facilities worldwide including; Australia, Denmark, Ghana, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, The Netherlands, The United Arab Emirates, The United States of America, The United Kingdom, Chile, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.
