Mobile Mail Screening Station

The United States Postal Inspection Service is taking its act on the road according to the USPS News Link.

Shown here is the new Mobile Mail Screening Station (MMSS) which is a self-sufficient screening station that can detect chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive threats. It debuted recently at the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism Conference held in Miami.

The Technical Services Division of the Postal Inspection Service designed the vehicle and wrote the specifications. The 53-foot custom tractor and trailer contains eight functional areas designed to accommodate existing and future technology. The facility requires a staff of five to eight people.

Future assignments could include next year’s Democratic and Republican national conventions.
