Meet OV Security.

OV Security™, formerly OpenVision, is a handheld x-ray scanning system featuring a patent-pending combination of a handheld, c-arm mounted 70 kV x-ray source and digital imager that has helped bomb squads and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams quickly inspect and detect high potential hazards for nearly fifteen years.

Minimize time on target. Real-time live video and still image capture provide vital information in determining the next step once a threat is identified, potentially eliminating the need for additional manual approaches.

    Sweep from the Ground Up

    A unique imager explicitly designed for security enables the technician to sweep the entire item of interest from the ground up. There are no dead spaces near the ground or flat surfaces, as is typical of standard digital panels designed for medical and industrial scanners.

  • Icon of robot platform with OV Security

    Robot Deployable

    Reduce manual approaches and time on target for suspicious packages by deploying OV Security on a variety of robot platforms.

  • Icon showing safe radiation footprint


    Highly collimated x-rays and specially designed shielding reduces your radiation footprint to a few feet, enabling handheld operation while ensuring public safety.

  • Icon of Expert Bomb Technician

    Expert Support

    Application support and training are provided by a retired US Army SFC EOD technician with many years of experience to get you up and running quickly.

Robot Deployable.

When the situation doesn't allow you to manually approach a suspicious package, use OV Security with robot platforms such as ICOR Technology MK3 CALIBER®.

Using OV Security with robot platforms helps bomb squad and EOD teams inspect suspicious packages, removing the need for a manual approach to determine threat / no threat.

Event/Crowd Security

For nearly fifteen years, OV Security has been deployed at airports, major sporting events, and VIP events to perform threat/no threat sweeps. For example, at the Calgary Stampede, OV Security helped determine "no threat" from an unattended bag found in a crowd of over 400,000 people.

Secondary Sweeps

Secondary sweeps are critical for thoroughly clearing areas for potential dangers after an initial threat happens. Bomb technicians utilized OV Security to investigate and clear suspicious packages, bags, and cars after the Aurora Theater Shooting, Orlando Pulse Nightclub Shooting, Austin Serial Bombings, and Boston Marathon Bombings.

What the Experts Say.

  • "[OV Security] is easy to get a quick x-ray as opposed to having to go with some of the mobile systems that take a few minutes to take an x-ray and run the imaging plates through the system. "
