US Government orders further X-Ray screening systems

American Science And Engineering : 20 November, 2009  (Application Story)
American Science and Engineering will supply Gemini parcel screening and Z Portal X-ray inspection systems for use in checkpoints across the USA
American Science and Engineering has announced the receipt of a $2.2 million order for a Z Portal X-ray screening system and multiple Gemini parcel inspection systems. For maximum organic threat detection capability, the Z Portal system is configured with three Z Backscatter modules for left, right, and top-down imaging of the vehicle under inspection. The Gemini parcel inspection system features a combination of AS&E's proprietary Z Backscatter technology and dual-energy transmission technology to provide enhanced detection of organic materials and metallic threats. The X-ray systems will be deployed by a government agency at multiple checkpoints to screen trucks, vehicles and parcels for explosive threats and contraband before they enter the facility.

"This latest order for a government agency reaffirms the value of Z Backscatter as a stand-alone technology or in combination with dual-energy transmission to secure high-threat facilities," said Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO of AS&E. "The Z Portal and Gemini systems will heighten the detection capability at each checkpoint and provide superior imaging capability of explosive threats and other contraband while maximizing safety and throughput."

The Z Portal system is the most comprehensive screening system available with multi-view, drive-through inspection of cars, vans, trucks, and their cargo. Z Portal's patented Z Backscatter technology produces photo-like images for superior detection capability of plastic and liquid explosives, narcotics, and plastics weapons, drugs, stowaways, and alcohol. With its compact design, the Z Portal system is ideal for high-traffic locations with space constraints and a high-throughput requirement and is safe for drivers, operators, cargo, and the environment. The system is available in two sizes — one for large trucks, buses, and cargo vehicles, and a smaller size for passenger vehicles. Customers include US Department of Defence, US Customs and Border Protection, Abu Dhabi Customs, and NATO.
