Z Portal vehicle scanner in use on Californian border
American Science and Engineering has announced that United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has begun using its Z Portal vehicle screening system at the San Ysidro, California border checkpoint. AS&E's Z Portal is the only multi-view, drive-through vehicle screening system available to scan cars, vans, and their cargo for concealed threats and contraband.

"The Z Portal system provides CBP with a high-throughput security solution to screen vehicles effectively and safely at the San Ysidro border crossing," said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E's President and CEO. "Utilizing AS&E's proprietary technology, the Z Portal is extremely safe for drivers, passengers, and operators. With this system, CBP officials can quickly and easily detect explosives, stowaways, drugs, and other contraband hidden in cars and other vehicles. We are very proud to support CBP's counter-drug and anti-terrorism programs with this comprehensive inspection solution to secure our borders."

The San Ysidro Border Station, located between San Diego, California and Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, is known as the world's busiest Land Port of Entry. This point of entry supports 24 northbound vehicle lanes in the United States and six southbound lanes into Mexico. Each day approximately 50,000 northbound vehicles and 25,000 northbound pedestrians travel through this border crossing.
