A Latin American country will use the Sentry Portal cargo screening system from American Science and Engineering for inspecting goods for explosives and other threats
American Science and Engineering has announced the receipt of an order for the Sentry Portal cargo screening system for a Latin American customs agency to inspect cargo at a border crossing. The Sentry Portal system will be used to safely and effectively screen cargo for explosive threats, drugs, and other contraband.
The Sentry Portal system will provide a high-throughput, high-penetration, drive-through cargo inspection solution that delivers a reliable means of detecting threatening materials, weapons, and contraband hidden in cargo containers, without impeding the flow of commerce. The system is safe for drivers, operators, and cargo, and offers the unique combination of high-throughput capability and unsurpassed image quality.
“This order will mark our first deployment of the Sentry Portal in this Latin American country,” said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E’s President and CEO. “The Sentry Portal system offers the Latin American customs agency the ideal inspection solution to balance their goal for minimum trade restrictions with maximum border security. With a compact footprint that allows for installation in areas with space constraints, the Sentry Portal system scans a very high percentage of cargo. We are proud to play an important role in safeguarding this region’s border crossing from smuggling, trade fraud, and other threats.”
