When Rapsican leadership discovered the error, they proactively informed the TSA of the configuration change."
- The X-ray generators are produced by Shanghai Advanced Non-Destructive Testing, which "According to the TSA's own preliminary test results ... shows comparable detection capability and false alarm rates."
