LOGOS IMAGING and PARC Partner to Commercialize Ruggedized Digital X-ray Detectors
Loveland, CO and Palo Alto, CA – Logos Imaging LLC (Logos), a leading provider of X-ray solutions for industrial and security customers worldwide, and PARC, a Xerox company, announced today that they have successfully partnered to advance the next generation of PARC’s X-ray detector technology. The agreement gives Logos the rights to integrate the technology into the well-known Logos digital radiographic systems they currently manufacture and sell worldwide.
Logos, established in 2002, has transformed portable security radiography with the introduction of their Computed Radiography (CR) systems. With the addition of the PARC X-ray detector digital radiography (DR) technology, Logos is again positioned to disrupt security markets by offering another first-of-its-kind technology.
The detector technology was developed by PARC in collaboration with the Flexible Electronics and Display Center at Arizona State University, with funding from several government agencies including DTRA, ARL and the US Army. It was developed specifically for operation in rugged environments and prototype units have been undergoing testing by a number of U.S. government agencies. Logos will build on this investment to expand on its range of DigitalRadiography (DR) systems through the addition of this thin, lightweight, and highly rugged device. Through Logos distribution partnerships, bomb technicians throughout the world will now have access to this cost-effective DR solution capable of being deployed in any setting, no matter how remote.
Coupled with existing pulsed sources, a rugged tablet, and a custom backpack, the system will allow a single operator the ability to deploy quickly and capture multiple images to make an accurate threat determination in a matter of minutes.
“PARC is excited to work with Logos to commercialize this new x-ray technology,” said Dr. Julie A. Bert, PARC technical lead. “Our prototype devices have met challenging performance requirements and we’re happy to work with Logos to find a path to commercialize this important technology. Logos’ experience and customer base makes them an ideal partner to move the system from research prototypes to products needed by customers in the DoD and elsewhere.”
PARC pioneered the development of flat panel a-Si DR sensors and originally commercialized them through the spinout of dpiX, the world’s leading source for high-resolution digital X-ray sensors.
“With an installed base of more than 4,000 imaging systems worldwide, Logos is well established in markets requiring larger format imaging solutions. The addition of the PARC technology will allow our company to meet the needs of an entirely new customer group that requires rugged, small format, ultraportable solutions to meet complex, mission critical requirements,” said Shawn Munn, President of Logos.
