The Mini Z portable X-ray detection system based on backscatter imaging technology has received a research and development award
Innovation award for detection system

American Science and Engineering's MINI Z handheld Z Backscatter imaging system has received R&D Magazine's prestigious 2015 R&D 100 Award as one of the 100 most technologically innovative products to be introduced over the past year. AS&E's MINI Z system, designed for fast, portable, real-time detection of hidden drugs, explosives, and other organic threats and contraband, was selected as winner for the most innovative products introduced in 2015.

"With four new products in the last 18 months, AS&E continues to fuel our innovation pipeline and expose a broader customer base to the capabilities and benefits of our unique detection technology," said Chuck Dougherty, AS&E's President and CEO. "When developing the MINI Z, we took the same technology that made the ZBV® system the number-one selling mobile cargo and vehicle inspection system in the world and miniaturized it. We are proud that our MINI Z has been recognized by the R&D 100 as ‘the very best in technology innovation' as it has proven to be an ideal solution for contraband, drug and currency interdiction for law enforcement, security, and customs applications. For example, the MINI Z system's unique flexibility and imaging capability enabled authorities to seize over $2 million in currency and drugs during deployments and recent customer demonstrations."  

The award-winning MINI Z system is being featured this week at Milipol 2015 in Paris, France, in AS&E booth 5 G 106. Also featured at the show are the recently released ZBV with Tx-View and next generation Z Portal multi-view screening system, for comprehensive detection of explosives, weapons, and other contraband.

The MINI Z system enables law enforcement, public safety and other security professionals to scan in places other systems can't reach and determine "on-the-go" if drugs, explosives, or other threats are present in difficult-to-reach locations such as car interiors and aircraft compartments. The MINI Z system was also named a 2014 ASIS Accolades Award winner and Best of What's New Award for 2014 in Popular Science Magazine.
