AS&E reports ‘termination for convenience’ on MobileSearch HE order from CBP

AS&E's MobileSearch HE

American Science and Engineering, Inc. (AS&E), reported on May 21 that it has received a Termination for Convenience for its $11.8 million order for its MobileSearch High Energy (HE) system from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

The original order was announced in a press release on April 1, 2010.

As is customary for U.S. Government awards, the order was subject to Termination for Convenience, a standard provision in government contracts which gives the government the right to terminate a contract in whole or part without the fault of the contractor, said AS&E in its press release.

The order was included in backlog in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010 (ending March 31, 2010) and will be removed from backlog in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 (ending June 30, 2010).

CBP has indicated that it intends to reevaluate the proposals in the format of a ‘corrective action’ process, says AS&E.

The MobileSearch HE inspection system is designed for the detailed inspection of cargo and vehicles in a highly mobile configuration, explains AS&E on its Web site. The system combines both 4.5 MeV high-energy transmission and Z Backscatter imaging for the most reliable means of detecting threatening materials on a mobile platform.

The system detects weapons, explosives, illegal drugs, agricultural products, currency, and other contraband, the company adds.

“MobileSearch HE is ideal for homeland security and drug interception missions at seaports, border crossings, and other high threat checkpoints,” says AS&E. “The system offers the largest tunnel size in the industry, allowing for the inspection of oversize cargo and vehicles.
