SIMPLE, OPEN DESIGN

The R&S®QPS quick personnel security scanner transforms people-screening technology with its high-performance, fully electronic and solidstate flat panel design that has no moving parts. The R&S®QPS improves the security screening experience and operations by having a simple open design for a spacious screening environment and unobstructed view for security personnel, making high-resolution people screening more comfortable and efficient than ever before.

The R&S®QPS provides a compact and open footprint, while delivering unmatched detection of concealed threats and contraband

Your task

Security screening operations face the challenge of striking a balance between efficient, effective screening methodology on one hand and space optimization on the other. The design of a security scanner must consider the importance of customer comfort and convenience during the screening process while ensuring effective use of limited space provided for security operations.

Advanced millimeterwave imaging solution

The R&S®QPS has been designed to support high-volume precision people screening with fewer false alarms and a physical design that allows a more comfortable and dignified screening posture. Utilizing non-ionizing millimeterwave (mmWave) radio technology, the R&S®QPS automatically detects potential threats from both metallic and non-metallic items.

Open design for optimized screening operations

For more than a decade, people-screening technology has presented installation challenges and occupied valuable space. Many systems require individuals to be screened in enclosed, confined spaces that can be uncomfortable. Today, the R&S®QPS, with its visually appealing, spacesaving flat panels, can be integrated more efficiently into a range of checkpoint areas, and its open design gives security personnel an unobstructed view of the entire checkpoint.

The open design of the R&S®QPS saves critical security space by accommodating wheelchairs, eliminating the need for a separate wheelchair gate. The R&S®QPS panels are mounted on rails in the floor plate that slide inward for maintenance access. These scanners can thus be installed against or close to other security equipment to support security screening in a variety of locations.

The system’s compact footprint and high-speed scanning enable rapid, high-volume screening to reduce queues and wait times. A single R&S®QPS scanner with multiple resolution stations can process more than 400 individuals per hour.

No moving parts

The R&S®QPS is a fully electronic, low-noise solution with no moving parts. Multistatic image processing technology delivers improved 3D resolution of the scanned volume and results in increased speed and an improved level of detection. Accelerated scan time (faster than the blink of an eye) virtually eliminates errors due to passenger movements. The solid-state flat panel design increases reliability and availability and reduces maintenance requirements.

Simple installation and minimal maintenance keeps lines moving

The R&S®QPS can be installed, relocated or packed up in less than half a day. Once setup is complete, power is established by a switch on the back of each panel. Within just three minutes of power-on, the system is operational.

Aside from an on-site preventive maintenance check every six months, the system is virtually maintenance-free. Initial setup and commissioning typically take less than three hours, since calibration and configuration setup are performed at the factory.
