Carnival Cruise Line revealed it is adding 3D x-ray security scanning at 9 of its North American cruise ports. This way, the company is bringing the latest travel and facility security technology to the cruise industry. 

The Montreal-based Canadian firm VOTI Detection took the contract for 91 of the 3D scanning units. According to VOTI president & CEO Rory Olson, the durability of the design in a maritime environment was the key factor, along with advanced imaging capability and remote diagnosis capability.

VOTI claims its equipment speeds up screening and enhances detection by providing operators with a 3D view of the object. The scanners can save the imaging files in a format which allows them to be re-analyzed if needed. 

Carnival Cruise Line has already started deploying the units and expects to finish the rollout by the end of February.
