Middle East government agency awards American Science and Engineering, Inc. order to upgrade their ZBV Fleet with Tx-View for use in counterterrorism applications

BILLERICA, Mass. – April 21, 2016 – American Science and Engineering, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASEI) (“AS&E”) announced today the receipt of an order from a Middle East government agency to upgrade seven of its currently deployed ZBV® mobile cargo and vehicle inspection systems with AS&E’s innovative Tx-View™ option. The Tx-View option provides simultaneous dual-energy transmission imaging to complement the ZBV system’s proven Z Backscatter® imaging for enhanced detection of metallic threats. The ZBV systems with Tx-View will be utilized in counterterrorism applications to secure high-threat checkpoints, facilities, and high-profile events.  

“The Tx-View option enhances the ZBV system’s detection capabilities for vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices or VBIEDs, weapons, and artillery shells, expanding the application reach for military and counterterrorism applications,” said Chuck Dougherty, AS&E’s President and CEO. “Tx-View – like the CarView™ portal and the next generation Z Portal® system – is another new, multi-technology offering that leverages our innovative wavelength-shifting fiber (WSF) X-ray detector technology to further differentiate AS&E in the security detection market.”

ZBV with Tx-View: Dual-energy transmission option for the ZBV system

AS&E’s Tx-View option for ZBV provides Customs and security officials with the lowest cost, most versatile, multi- technology, mobile cargo and vehicle screening system available today. Deployed quickly and easily, the Tx-View option is completely self-contained in a trailer for storage and transport. ZBV with Tx-View uses patented wavelength-shifting fiber (WSF) X-ray detector technology to provide dual-energy transmission imaging for material discrimination. WSF detector technology has enabled the development of more powerful, efficient, compact, and rugged AS&E X-ray systems. Watch a single operator set-up the Tx-View.

ZBV: Proven detection results and an unmatched reputation for reliability and effectiveness

The ZBV system is the number-one selling cargo and vehicle screening system in the world. With nearly 800 systems sold to date, AS&E’s ZBV system is used by leading government agencies, border authorities, law enforcement personnel, military organizations, and security agencies in more than 65 countries. Since its introduction, the ZBV system has consistently received the highest marks for quality, reliability, performance, and safety with a proven record of detection results.
