Screening systems on show at ASIS

American Science and Engineering has announced a powerful line-up of products on display at the ASIS International Conference in Anaheim, CA from September 28 - October 1, 2015. AS&E systems featured in its Booth #1033 will include the next generation Z Portal multi-view X-ray screening system just announced last week, along with the recently released ZBV with Tx-View dual-energy transmission option for its ZBV mobile cargo and vehicle screening system. In addition, the company will demonstrate the MINI Z handheld X-ray scanner, winner of last year's ASIS Accolades 2014 Best of What's New Award, and its Gemini parcel X-ray inspection system.

"AS&E has been strategically focused on expanding its product portfolio and we are excited to bring these latest innovations to ASIS 2015," said Chuck Dougherty, AS&E's President and CEO. "Our goal is to continually introduce the most advanced technologies to combat terrorism, drug and weapon smuggling, trade fraud, and illegal immigration, and our current products are designed to meet a variety of applications with offerings ranging from handheld X-ray scanning to large drive-through screening capabilities."

The Next Generation Z Portal: Multi-view, Multi-technology cargo and vehicle screening system

The next generation Z Portal system is the only drive-through cargo and vehicle inspection system that uses multiple detection technologies to provide up to six views--including dual-energy transmission, Z Backscatter and Forwardscatter images--of scanned passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, and cargo. The new Z Portal system incorporates AS&E's latest source and detector innovations in a more compact design, enabling improved image quality at higher throughput in space-constrained locations such as checkpoints at high-threat facilities.

ZBV with Tx-View: Dual-Energy Transmission Option for ZBV

Tx-View is a dual-energy transmission option for AS&E's industry-leading line of ZBV mobile cargo and vehicle screening systems. This ZBV with Tx-View option allows security personnel to simultaneously acquire dual-energy transmission images for detection of metallic threats such as weapons and artillery shells, and Z Backscatter images for superior detection of organic threats and contraband. Deployed quickly and easily, the Tx-View option is completely self-contained in a trailer for storage and transport, providing customs and security officials with the lowest cost, most versatile, multi-technology, mobile cargo and vehicle screening system available today.

MINI Z: The World's First Handheld Z Backscatter Imaging System

The MINI Z is the world's first handheld Z Backscatter imaging system for fast, portable, real-time detection of hidden drugs, explosives, and other organic threats and 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.

Gemini System: For Checkpoint, Mail Room, and Small Parcel Inspection

AS&E's Gemini system provides the most comprehensive threat detection available for hand-carried items, mail, parcel, and baggage screening. Available in multiple tunnel sizes, the Gemini systems' dual-energy transmission X-rays generate a colorized, high-resolution image for detection of metallic threats -- such as guns, knives, and wires, which could indicate an IED. Gemini's Z Backscatter X-rays generate an image that provides enhanced detection of organic materials, such as explosives, drugs, and plastic weapons. Together, the two technologies provide the most information available about the contents of a parcel. The Gemini systems can be networked for centralized management and reporting of the threat image projection (TIP) program, a tool that promotes screener engagement by projecting fictitious threat images.
