American Science and Engineering supplies innovative X-ray inspection systems for a variety of border control, security and law enforcement applications. Proprietary Z Backscatter technology enables baggage inspection personnel to detect plastic weapons and liquid explosives more easily than with conventional X-Ray systems which often leave these items undetected. AS&E also offers radiation detection technology for revealing radioactive sources and potential dirty bombs. Their products can be deployed in a number of applications including baggage screening and vehicle inspection and cargo scanning. Read more American Science and Engineering news below:
