Vehicle Screening Systems Ordered For US Border Use

American Science And Engineering Inc : 07 December, 2010  (Application Story)
American Science and Engineering will supply further Z Portal vehicle inspection systems for use by the US Government in homeland security operations
American Science and Engineering has been awarded an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract from the US government for multiple Z Portal vehicle screening systems. The multi-year ID/IQ contract has a ceiling value of $67.0 million. The first task order of the ID/IQ has been funded for $29.5 million. The Z Portal systems will be deployed on multiple US border crossings. This installation follows the successful deployment of the Z Portal system on the US Southwest border in 2008.

'These additional Z Portal systems will provide homeland security officials with advanced detection technology,' said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E's President and CEO. 'The Z Portal offers a high-throughput security solution to safely and effectively screen vehicles for explosive threats, drugs, and other contraband. We continue to receive outstanding field performance reports of AS&E systems deployed on the border, and we are proud to support the US government's critical counter-drug and anti-terrorism missions.'
