Perimeter Protection/Intrusion Detection Middle East government agency awards American Science and Engineering order to upgrade their ZBV fleet with Tx-View for use in counterterrorism applications Earlier this year American Science and Engineering, Inc (NASDAQ:ASEI) (“AS&E”) announced 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.
