Vehicle and cargo screening systems for the Middle East

American Science And Engineering : 06 April, 2009  (Application Story)
Z portal systems from American Science and Engineering to be supplied to Middle Eastern client for screening vehicles for explosives and contraband
American Science and Engineering has received a $6.3 million follow-on order from a Middle East client for multiple Z Portal cargo and vehicle screening systems to protect critical infrastructure in the region. AS&E's Z Portal systems will be used to scan vehicles and trucks entering the client's high-risk facilities to detect explosive threats and contraband.

"We are working closely with this important and valued client to provide comprehensive multi-view inspection to protect their critical infrastructure," said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E's President and CEO. "The Z Portal's three-sided inspection provides maximum inspection capability to decrease their facilities' levels of vulnerability. With AS&E's proprietary Z Backscatter technology, the Z Portal has proven technology to find hidden threats and contraband at high-risk facilities and other checkpoints. This follow-on order attests to their satisfaction with AS&E's comprehensive security solutions."

AS&E has a full range of leading-edge, industry-proven security screening solutions for critical infrastructure that is essential to the function of 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, 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.

The Z Portal system is the most comprehensive screening system available with multi-view, drive-through screening for left, right, and top-down imaging 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 relocatable screening 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, and NATO.
