Tighter US border control with vehicle screening.

American Science And Engineering : 10 October, 2007  (Application Story)
US Government orders drive-through vehicle screening and scanning systems for high density traffic monitoring at borders.
American Science and Engineering has announced that the USGovernment has purchased its first Z Portal drive-through screening system and reorders three Z Backscatter Vans (ZBV) for inspecting trucks and passenger cars in high-volume traffic areas. For maximum threat detection capability, the Z Portal system is configured with three Z Backscatter imaging modules (left, right, and top-view) and Forwardscatter technology. With this order, over 300 ZBVs will be deployed worldwide for force protection, VIP and event security, law enforcement, and port and border security. The contracts are valued at $3.9 million, and include installation, and operator training.

"The Z Portal and ZBV offer the safest and most effective screening to detect explosives, contraband, and stowaways at congested checkpoints," said Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO. "This first order for the Z Portal follows the successful deployment of multiple ZBVs at border crossings in support of the US Government's counter-drug and anti-terrorism programs. Utilising AS&E's proprietary Z Backscatter technology, we've worked very closely with Government officials to meet their detection and performance requirements to offer comprehensive inspections solutions to secure our borders."
