About The Company
Rapiscan Systems owned by OSI Systems is a world leader security screening provider, manufacturing security equipment and systems designed for checkpoints, cargo, vehicle, baggage, parcel, and air cargo security inspection.
Rapiscan needed to protect fibre connecting their equipment to the Airport mainframe.
Working with Rapiscan to ensure all aspects of the project we considered, we designed a bespoke multi layered stainless steel armouring solution protecting the vulnerable 4-way fibres within.
The benefit of the armoured solution also provided an added layer of security protection against tampering or accidental damage.
- Alker provided in house fibre optic design for the multi armoured fibre optic cable.
- We developed the 9mm stainless steel breakout tails for the assembly.
- We used a metal multi-fibre connector which protects the fibre in harsh environments.

We look forward to hearing from you with our next challengecontact us
It is difficult to express my admiration for the level of ability that exists within your organisation to not only restore full optical functionality, but to also manufacture additional parts to actually improve the original design. Well done and thank you for a job perfectly executed.

Despite the challenge and changing requirements, Alker was always very accommodating with the aim of providing consistently high-quality service in a short time frame.read more
