Handheld Inspection


The MINI Z® system is the world's first and most powerful handheld Z Backscatter imaging system that highlights organic threats and contraband. Its portable form factor allows the operator to scan in hard-to-reach places, helping customs and law enforcement screen vehicles, walls, furniture, aircraft interiors, packages, and more for drugs, currency, explosives, and other organic threats while on-the-go.


The MINI Z system is safe for operators, bystanders, and the environment. The system’s X-ray dose conforms with the appropriate ANSI, ICRP, NCRP, and EURATOM radiation safety standards. Although the MINI Z is a low-energy and low-dose Z Backscatter system, it is not designed to scan people. The MINI Z system must be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and under the jurisdiction of local laws and regulations.
