Practice and sharing makes perfect

It takes smugglers hours and days to hide the illegal goods. Thanks to x-ray equipment and special training customs officers find them in few seconds.

CELBET X-ray image and data exchange platform, created for training purposes helps officers to develop skills and share the images.

Nowadays when the information is most precious thing it is good not only to be the owner of the information but also to share the information with those who are playing in the same team.

It is crucial to collect and share as many different images and cases as possible to provide effective trainings. That’s why Equipment team decided to create the X-ray image and data exchange platform.

The main purpose of the platform was to develop CELBET training system and to enhance skills and ability of officers who analyse X-ray images. Exchanging of x-ray images and information on seizures made by use of scanners improve their skills and the effectiveness of non-intrusive inspections. The platform was created with a strong support of Training team and CELBET E-learning Center of Expertise within Slovak administration.

How does it work?
