NATO order for Z Portal screening systems

American Science And Engineering : 28 May, 2008  (Application Story)
Drive-through X-Ray screening systems ordered for vehicle and cargo security at checkpoints
American Science and Engineering has been selected by NC3A, to deliver Z Portal X-ray screening systems with a multi-year service contract. After a highly competitive procurement process, NC3A awarded the $6.2 million contract to AS&E to deploy the Z Portal multi-view cargo and vehicle screening system at strategic security checkpoints.

"This follow-on order from NC3A demonstrates the value of AS&E's proprietary Z Backscatter technology for their mission critical scenarios," said Anthony R. Fabiano, President and CEO of AS&E. "Z Portal produces photo-like images from three sides of the cargo — left, right, and top-down — to provide maximum inspection capability to secure this vital checkpoint. With broad applications for military facilities and force protection, Z Portal offers the safest and most effective high-throughput, drive-through screening system to detect threats and contraband in cargo and vehicles in real-time."

The Z Portal system is a multi-view, drive-through inspection system capable of scanning cars, vans, trucks, and their cargo for concealed threats and contraband. Z Portal produces photo-like images, and highlights organic contraband, such as explosives, drugs, stowaways, and alcohol. With its compact design, the Z Portal system is ideal for high-traffic locations with space constraints and a high-throughput requirement. The Z Portal system is safe for drivers, operators, cargo, and the environment and can be configured with up to three Z Backscatter imaging modules to provide a left, right, and top-down view of the vehicles under examination. The relocatable screening system is available in two sizes — one for large trucks, buses, and cargo vehicles, and a smaller size for passenger vehicles.
