US Critical Infrastructure Protection Project

American Science And Engineering : 19 November, 2010  (Application Story)
The Z Portal vehicle screening system has been ordered from American Science and Engineering for use in explosion detection for the protection of a critical infrastructure facility
American Science and Engineering has announced the receipt of an order for a Z Portal cargo and vehicle screening system. The Z Portal system will be used by law enforcement officials to scan vehicles and trucks entering a US-based critical infrastructure facility for explosive threats, weapons, and contraband.

'AS&E's Z Portal system is uniquely capable to meet this law enforcement agency's stringent detection requirements for explosive threats and contraband,' said Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO. 'The Z Portal system has a proven track record to protect critical infrastructure, military bases, and border crossings around the world -- all while maximizing safety and throughput. We are very proud to assist law enforcement in their mission to protect our nation's critical infrastructure and safeguarding this US facility.'

AS&E has a full range of leading-edge, industry-proven security screening solutions for critical infrastructure that is essential to the function of corporations, governments and national defence organizations around the world. Securing these facilities is crucial to protect the safe operation of facilities for electricity, telecommunications, transportation, water supplies, military, police, banking, hospitals, heating, agriculture, commerce, oil and gas refineries, and national monuments. AS&E systems for cargo, parcel, and personnel screening are deployed worldwide, helping large governments and corporations protect their vital assets.

The Z Portal system is the most comprehensive screening system available with multi-view, drive-through screening for left, right, and top-down imaging of cars, vans, trucks, and their cargo. Z Portal's patented Z Backscatter technology produces photo-like images for superior detection capability of plastic and liquid explosives, narcotics, and plastics weapons, 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 and is safe for drivers, operators, cargo, and the environment. The re-locatable screening system is available in two sizes -- one for large trucks, buses, and cargo vehicles, and a smaller size for passenger vehicles. Customers include U.S. Department of Defence, US Customs and Border Protection, and NATO.
