Gemini parcel inspection systems on show at ISC West

American Science And Engineering : 03 April, 2009  (New Product)
Multiple technology parcel inspection systems combine dual-energy transmission with Z Backscatter X-Ray technology for improved parcel content information
Gemini parcel inspection systems on show at ISC West
American Science and Engineering has announced the introduction of two new Gemini Parcel Inspection Systems: Gemini 7555 and Gemini 100100. These systems along with the Gemini 6040 provide customers with a selection of systems to inspect everything from mail, baggage and break-bulk cargo within mailrooms, lobbies, checkpoints, airports, high threat facilities and other security-sensitive areas. A Gemini multi-technology system will be demonstrated at ISC West 2009 in Las Vegas, April 1-3 2009 in AS&E's Booth #38026.

Gemini continues to be the first and only conventional parcel inspection system to combine multiple technologies — AS&E's proprietary Z Backscatter X-ray technology and dual-energy transmission — allowing operators to obtain the most information about the contents of a parcel. Operators simultaneously view two images, a Z Backscatter image and a dual-energy image, dramatically increasing the likelihood of finding hidden illegal materials. Gemini's unique capability to detect both metallic and non-metallic threats — even in cluttered environments — makes it an invaluable inspection tool for security officials.

"With the introduction of additional Gemini systems, we are broadening our offering of the only proven multi-technology X-ray solution for screening parcels," said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E's President and CEO. "We believe that Gemini's combination of Z Backscatter and dual-energy transmission provides the most attractive value proposition for parcel inspection available today."

Gemini is the lowest cost multi-technology parcel inspection system on the market and the only system to combine AS&E's patented Z Backscatter technology and dual-energy transmission. AS&E's patented Z Backscatter technology provides enhanced detection of organic materials such as explosives (including sheet and liquid explosives), drugs, and plastic weapons which are easily missed by transmission-only systems in cluttered parcels. Z Backscatter's photo-like images are easy to interpret, thereby speeding analysis time, potentially decreasing bags flagged for secondary screening, and reducing operator fatigue. Dual-energy transmission provides outstanding image quality, and enables the quick detection of a wide variety of threats such as guns, knives, and wires for IEDs. In addition, dual-energy offers organic and metallic discrimination. Together, Gemini's two technologies provide the most information available about the contents of a parcel.

Gemini is now available in the following tunnel sizes to meet your security requirements:

* Gemini 6040: With a tunnel size of 25.0in x 17.3in (64 cm x 44 cm), this system is ideal for screening mail and other small parcels for checkpoint, mailroom, and lobby applications.

* Gemini 7555: With a tunnel size of 30.7in x 22.8in (78 cm x 58 cm), this system is ideal for screening large packages for checkpoint, mailroom, and lobby applications.

* Gemini 100100: With a tunnel size of 41.3in x 40.3in (105.0 cm x 102.5 cm), this system is ideal for larger parcels and break-bulk cargo for customs, mailroom, and aviation applications.
