Comprehensive detection system for Iraq airport

American Science And Engineering : 08 April, 2016  (Application Story)
The Najaf international airport in Iraq is improving security with the installation of cargo and parcel screening systems
Comprehensive detection system for Iraq airport

American Science and Engineering has received an order from Iraq's Najaf International Airport for a Z Portal cargo screening system and multiple Gemini parcel inspection systems.  When combined, these systems will provide Najaf Airport with a comprehensive detection solution for scanning incoming vehicles as well as baggage for weapons, vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED), drugs, and other threats and contraband.  Demonstrating its commitment to world-class security, Najaf Airport also entered into a five-year contract for continuing support by AS&E's industry-leading Service team.

"Customers with vital security missions rely on AS&E's proven technology to meet their detection requirements in high-threat environments," said Chuck Dougherty, AS&E's President and CEO.  "We are proud to have been selected by Najaf Airport, one of Iraq's busiest airports, to provide the advanced technology and expert technical support it needs to protect the safety of passengers, personnel, and infrastructure."

"Passengers and freight forwarders are increasingly turning to Najaf Airport for their international air travel and shipping requirements," said Sheikh Faed Al-Shimary, Director General of the Najaf Airport Authority. "We chose AS&E's comprehensive detection solutions because they provide rapid inspection of vehicles and carry-on luggage in a high-security and high-traffic environment while ensuring the flow of passengers and commerce — and because it is well-known in our region for delivering exceptional, responsive customer service."

AS&E X-ray detection systems are used for aviation screening operations by customers in Asia, Latin America, the European Union, and Africa. For example, Hong Kong Customs deploys the Gemini system for baggage screening operations at Hong Kong International Airport. Taiwan Aviation Police deploys the Z Portal system and Gemini system to detect organic threats and other contraband in air cargo routed through Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. The Gemini 100100 X-ray inspection system was instrumental in detecting 244 cartons of the anesthetic drug Ketamine, one of the largest narcotics seizures in Taiwan in the past few years.
