In the last three years, an average of more than 10 dangerous mail or package incidents per day are responded to by either the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) or the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). In addition, AstraZeneca’s Covid Vaccine Plant, Subway Sandwiches Corporate Headquarters, and Dr. Anthony Fauci have all been victims of dangerous mail threats over the past 16 months

Mail and package scanning is important to the security of governments, corporations, institutions, and individuals, but remains a highly underserved and oft-overlooked sector. Raysecur has recently released MailSecur 500, an addition to the MailSecur product line of 3D desktop mail and package scanners. The new model “sees inside” of objects through dynamic mmWave imaging for more precise and detailed threat detection.

Unlike X-rays, which emit harmful radiation and require safety inspections and trained operators, MailSecur uses safe mmWaves that require no special training and are 300x more sensitive than X-rays at detecting liquids and powders (e.g. drugs, anthrax and ricin) concealed in mail and packages.

The screening technology intercepts and detects mail and package threats including explosives, liquids, powder, weapons, radiation, and other suspicious contents. 

It is the first mail scanner to receive Department of Homeland Security (DHS) designation as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT) under the DHS Safety Act, as reported by finance.yahoo.com.
