American Science and Engineering has received an order for $3.5 million for AS&E's cargo inspection systems from Restrata, an Olive Group company, which is acting as the security partner for the city development project of Bismaya, Iraq, 10 kilometers south of Baghdad. AS&E's cargo X-ray inspection systems will be used to help ensure the security of the critical infrastructure project to build 100,000 housing units that will accommodate a half million Iraqi citizens.
"We are proud that AS&E was selected to support this important project and participate in the economic development in the region," said Chuck Dougherty, AS&E's President and CEO. "Providing comprehensive screening for all vehicles and cargo entering the city, AS&E's inspection solutions will reduce the level of vulnerability at this massive site and safeguard personnel, citizens, and the critical assets of the new development project in Bismaya."
AS&E has a full range security screening solutions for critical infrastructure that are essential to the function of corporations, governments and national defense organizations around the world. Securing these facilities is crucial to protect the safe operation of facilities for electricity, telecommunications, transportation, water supplies, military, police, banking, hospitals, heating, agriculture, commerce, oil and gas refineries, and national monuments. AS&E systems for cargo, parcel, and personnel screening are deployed worldwide, helping large governments and corporations protect their vital assets.
