American Science and Engineering has been selected as the “Best Explosives Detection Solution” by GSN: Government Security News magazine at the 2012 Homeland Security Awards. AS&E received this honour at a gala awards dinner in Washington, D.C. among distinguished federal, state, county and municipal government officials.
The GSN award recognizes AS&E’s ZBV system, the world’s number one selling cargo and vehicle inspection system with proven results for explosive, threat, and contraband detection. Customers around the world rely on its mobility, effectiveness and flexibility to address constantly evolving security needs, including US Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Department of Defense for homeland security and force protection applications to detect VBIEDs, drugs, stowaways, and other contraband in war zones, military bases, and on US ports and borders.
“Our ZBV system is recognized worldwide as a critical tool to combat the world’s toughest security issues, and we are pleased to have GSN acknowledge our success,” said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E’s President and CEO. “The ZBV system has helped save lives and deterred terrorist and criminal activities. Customers in 55 countries rely on the ZBV’s ability to quickly and effectively respond to threats and increase the efficiency and accuracy of their security missions.”
The Annual GSN Homeland Security Awards program is intended to honor the public/private partnerships between physical and IT security product and solution providers, and federal, state and local government programs that have performed in an exemplary manner during the previous year.
