InterlaCed Energy CArgo ScaNnIng System (CANIS) is intended to inspect cargo containers using high energy X-ray radiography method. It consists of two main components: interlaced energy (4MeV/6MeV) linear accelerator and a detection system with a specially dedicated software. The electron linear accelerator is equipped with a dedicated fast energy switching system based on a patented solution […] of pulse-to-pulse RF power attenuation. Beam optics are realized using a dedicated solenoid. The single tungsten collimator creates a fan beam at the accelerator’s exit. The container is transported between the accelerator and detector, while the linac emits alternately high and low energy pulses of radiation. Attenuated X-rays are collected in the detector, thus an information about absorption can be sent to a PC and displayed line after line to form a radiographic image. The collected pictures can be then processed by a sophisticated software (e.g. colored or filtered) or archived for later manipulation.
