Dutch Authorities Using ZBV System For Aeroplane Scanning
American Science and Engineering has announced that the Dutch Customs Administration in the Netherlands will deploy their recently purchased Z Backscatter Van (ZBV) mobile X-ray screening system to inspect commercial and cargo aeroplanes. The system will scan in real-time a variety of aircraft to reveal organic threats and contraband hidden in the structure of the aeroplane. This is the second ZBV system deployed by Dutch Customs — the other is currently in use at the Port of Rotterdam.

“Dutch Customs is making use of the ZBV system’s flexible, mobile design to scan airplanes of all sizes for drugs and contraband,” said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E’s President and CEO.  “Working closely with our clients, we provide creative and innovative solutions for their complex detection requirements. This new application for the ZBV system provides Dutch Customs with a trend setting solution for their unique inspection needs. Customers around the world continue to find new ways to use the ZBV system to better secure their borders to improve security in their countries.”  

The ZBV system employs AS&E’s innovative Z
Backscatter technology, which reveals organic threats and contraband that transmission X-rays miss  —  such as explosives and drugs  —  and provides photo-like imaging for rapid analysis. The system can drive by and scan a variety of aircraft sizes and configurations and can reveal organic contraband hidden in the structure of an aircraft.
