OSI Systems, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, designs and manufactures specialized electronic systems and components for critical applications. The company sells its products and provides related services in diversified markets, including homeland security, healthcare, defense and aerospace. Divisions The company has three divisions: Security, providing security and inspection systems, turnkey security screening solutions and related services; Healthcare, providing patient monitoring, diagnostic cardiology and anesthesia systems; and Optoelectronics and Manufacturing, providing specialized electronic components and electronic manufacturing services for the Security and Healthcare divisions, as well as to external original equipment manufacturer clients for applications in the defense, aerospace, medical and industrial markets. Products and Technology The company designs, develops, manufactures, and sells products ranging from security and inspection systems to patient monitoring, diagnostic cardiology and anesthesia systems to discrete optoelectronic devices and value-added subsystems. Security and Inspection Systems: The company designs, manufactures, and markets security and inspection systems globally to end users under the ‘Rapiscan Systems’ trade name. Rapiscan Systems products are used to inspect baggage, cargo, people, vehicles and other objects for weapons, explosives, drugs, radiation and other contraband. Rapiscan Systems products fall into five categories: baggage and parcel inspection, cargo and vehicle inspection, hold (checked) baggage screening, people screening and radiation detection systems. The company also offers turnkey security screening services under the ‘S2’ trade name, including the staffing and operation of security screening checkpoints. Many of its security and inspection systems include dual- or multi-energy X-ray technology with computer software enhanced imaging technology to facilitate the detection of materials such as explosives, weapons, narcotics, currency or other contraband. While all X-ray systems produce a two-dimensional image of the contents of the inspected object, the dual-energy X-ray systems also measure the X-ray absorption of the inspected object's contents at two X-ray energies to determine the atomic number, mass and other characteristics of the object's contents. The various organic and inorganic substances in the inspected object appear to operators of the inspection systems in various colors, and this visual information can be used to identify and differentiate the inspected materials. The company has developed a dual-view X-ray technology, available on many of its systems, that allows operators to examine objects from two orthogonal positions simultaneously, thereby reducing the need for re-scanning of objects and improving the operator's ability to detect threats. The company’s baggage and parcel inspection, cargo and vehicle inspection and hold (checked) baggage screening inspection systems range in size from compact tabletop systems to large systems comprising entire buildings in which trucks, shipping containers or pallets are inspected. Many of its inspection systems are also designed to be upgradeable to respond to new customer requirements as they emerge or change. The company’s cargo and vehicle inspection applications, in which cars, trucks, shipping containers, pallets and other large objects can be inspected, are designed in various configurations, including fixed-site, gantry, relocatable, portal and mobile systems. These products are primarily used to verify the contents of cars, trucks or cargo containers and to detect the presence of contraband, including narcotics, weapons, explosives, radioactive and nuclear materials and other smuggled items. Many of its cargo and vehicle inspection systems utilize X-ray beams, in conjunction with digital imaging equipment, to non-intrusively inspect objects and present images to an inspector, showing shapes, sizes, locations and relative densities of the contents. The company also manufactures both active and passive radiation detection devices utilizing gamma, neutron and isotope specif
