In radar, a display similar to the K-display, in which the target appears as a pair of vertical deflections or blips from the horizontal time base. The relative amplitude of the vertical deflections indicates direction; target distance is determined by moving an adjustable signal along the baseline until it coincides with the horizontal position of the vertical deflections. The horizontal control is calibrated in distance. Also called an N-scan, N-scope, or N-indicator.

PITTSBURGH, March 18 /PRNewswire/ --The Scientific Ecology Group (SEG), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Westinghouse Environmental Services Division, today unveiled its N-SCAN real-time soil assaying service.
The N-SCAN Field Survey Vehicle (FSV) is a self-contained, self-powered unit that does not rely on external power sources, so it can examine soil from even the most remote location.
Based on Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis technology, N-SCAN uses energetic neutrons to cause nuclear reactions within the atoms of a material.
N-SCAN allows customers to assay soil without exposing workers to radioactive or hazardous materials--and eliminates the shipment of samples off site for analysis.
In addition to work with soil, N-SCAN can be used to determine in situ the composition of chemical weapons underground, including both explosive and active agents.
As its core function, N-Scan allows barcode scanning of "print-at-home" or regular tickets using a variety of Symbol[TM] handheld devices and updates the Tessitura database in real-time over wireless networks.
N-SCAN[TM] - N-Scan is a cost effective venue access control and patron tracking system.
