AS&E Introduces the Next Generation Cargo/Vehicle Screening System

[ October 16, 2015   //   ]

New Multi-Technology System Offers Enhanced Threat and Contraband Detection and Higher Throughput in a Smaller Footprint

American Science and Engineering, Inc. (AS&E), a worldwide supplier of innovative X-ray detection solutions, recently today announced the introduction of its next generation Z Portal® system, the only drive-through cargo and vehicle inspection system that uses multiple detection technologies to provide up to six views 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 along with higher throughput, even in space-constrained locations.

“The integration of dual-energy transmission with our proven Z Backscatter® and Forwardscatter® technologies in the next generation Z Portal system is another example of our commitment to innovation to solve customers’ real-world inspection challenges,” said Chuck Dougherty, AS&E’s President and CEO. “This multi-technology solution delivers even greater visibility into scanned objects — at higher scan speeds and in a smaller footprint — giving our customers the most comprehensive detection in a single, drive-through platform.”

The next generation Z Portal system builds on the success of AS&E’s proven Z Portal system, currently in operation at ports, borders, airports, and high-threat facilities worldwide. With over 100 systems sold to customers such as NATO, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Taiwan Aviation Police, and Abu Dhabi Customs, the Z Portal system supports vital security and customs missions by assisting in countless seizures of drugs, contraband, weapons, and stowaways.
