Border protection order for Z Backscatter Vans

American Science And Engineering : 06 May, 2009  (Application Story)
Law enforcement officials at border crossing point order mobile X-Ray detection equipment from American Science and Engineering for drug detection
American Science and Engineering (AS&E) has announced the receipt of a $4.7 million contract for multiple Z Backscatter Vans (ZBVs) equipped with Forwardscatter technology. The ZBVs will be used by law enforcement officials to scan vehicles at border crossings and other checkpoints to detect illegal drugs and other contraband.

"The ZBV has emerged as the mobile X-Ray system of choice to support time sensitive security missions," said Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO. "With the ZBV's flexible, rapid response capability, security authorities can utilize the ZBV to counter shifting smuggling routes at sea ports, land borders, and other checkpoints. The ZBV's unparalleled mobility combined with its ability to find organic threats — such as drugs and explosives — make it a highly effective tool for law enforcement."

A breakthrough in X-ray detection technology, AS&E's Z Backscatter Van is the Number One selling non-intrusive mobile inspection system on the market. ZBV is a low-cost, highly mobile screening system built into a commercially available delivery van. The ZBV allows for immediate deployment in response to security threats, and its high throughput capability facilitates rapid inspections. The system's unique "drive-by" capability allows one or two operators to conduct X-ray imaging while the ZBV drives past suspect vehicles and objects. For personnel safety in dangerous environments, a remote console is available for operating the system in stationary mode from a distance of up to 500 meters.
