Hand held screening system wins science award

American Science and Engineering's new MINI Z Handheld Z Backscatter Screening System has been named "Best of What's New" by Popular Science magazine. This prestigious award is given each year to revolutionary new products and technologies that solve a previously unsolved problem.

"For 27 years, Popular Science has honoured the innovations that surprise and amaze us—those that make a positive impact on our world today and challenge our view of what's possible in the future," said Cliff Ransom, Editor-in-Chief of Popular Science. "The Best of What's New Award is the magazine's top honour, and the winners—chosen from among thousands of entrants—each a revolution in its field."

The MINI Z system is the world's first handheld Z Backscatter imaging system, providing law enforcement, public safety, security, and port and border officials with fast, portable, real-time detection of concealed threats and contraband, even in the most hard-to-reach places. By using AS&E's signature Z Backscatter technology, the system can detect drugs, explosives, and other organic materials concealed behind non-metallic surfaces. Using the MINI Z system, security personnel are now able to quickly assess a suspicious object or location and determine—in just minutes—if explosives or other threats are present in unattended bags and packages, furniture, pleasure craft, small aircraft, and vehicle tires, seats, and panels.

"We are honoured to accept the "Best of What's New" award from Popular Science, in recognition of how the MINI Z system and its underlying technology represent a significant step forward in efforts to protect public safety," said Chuck Dougherty, AS&E's President and CEO. "Reflecting AS&E's ongoing commitment to innovation, the MINI Z system is a game-changer for law enforcement and other security officials who now have the critical tool they need to quickly identify and resolve threats to public safety wherever they occur."
