ChemImage and ADANI Systems Announce Partnership


Two leaders in innovative technology team up to prevent contraband in correctional facilities

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania — ChemImage, a leader in standoff threat detection technology, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Texas-based ADANI Systems have partnered to offer comprehensive screening technology to correctional facilities.

ChemImage and ADANI understand the gravity of the opioid epidemic plaguing the country, as well as the dangers of other contraband entering facilities and are using their technology to help combat these issues. A report from the Office of the Inspector General states that mail, inmate visitors and staff are the three primary ways drugs enter prisons. ChemImage and ADANI have teamed up to shut down these primary avenues for drug entry.

ChemImage’s VeroVision Mail Screener scans inmate mail using shortwave near infrared hyperspectral imaging technology to detect hidden illicit drugs and common cutting agents. The product features a simple, user interface that allows the operator to scan mail within seconds to confirm the presence of illicit drug substances. This 100% safe technology offers a high rate of accuracy and integrates into the normal process and flow that mailrooms are currently used to.

ADANI Systems’ Body Scanners incorporate patented transmission X-ray technology in a full body security scanner that includes breakthrough automatic contraband detection capability, an industry first. The unparalleled features and rich designs provide flexibility and a high level of security. Proven performance, reliability and effectiveness of this transmission whole body imager stands unmatched. Designed for harsh correctional environments, ADANI Body Scanners can image a wide variety of smuggled contraband such as weapons, narcotics, knives/blades, currency, electronic devices or other foreign objects swallowed or inserted in a body cavity.

Drugs and other contraband finding their way into a prison is a serious issue because it jeopardizes the health and safety of staff as well as inmates and adds to the expense of incarceration. Prisoners under the influence of illicit substances or with access to other contraband may be combative and jeopardize the safety of prison staff. A growing number of facilities throughout the country are implementing the ChemImage Mail Screener and ADANI Body Scanners as a comprehensive contraband elimination solution.
