AS&E Introduces Sentry Portal Cargo Inspection System(BILLERICA, Mass., Aug. 5, 2009) -- American Science and Engineering, Inc. (AS&E(r)) (NASDAQ: ASEI), a leading worldwide supplier of innovative X-ray detection solutions, announced today the introduction of the Sentry(tm) Portal - a high-throughput, high-penetration, drive-through cargo inspection system designed to quickly and safely scan trucks, cargo containers, and tanker trucks for threatening materials, weapons, and contraband. The Sentry Portal system is safe for drivers and operators and offers the unique combination of high-penetration capability with unsurpassed image quality. The system is an ideal solution for high-volume seaports, border crossings, and security checkpoints. The Sentry Portal system can also be deployed along with AS&E's multi-view Z Portal(r) screening system for three-sided imaging of the entire vehicle (including the cab) and the detection of organic materials such as drugs, explosives, or stowaways.
"We are pleased to add the Sentry Portal to AS&E's cargo inspection product offerings," said Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO. "This new high-energy system provides superior imaging and can scan 150 trucks per hour - six times the capacity of conventional high-energy X-ray systems - helping to maintain the flow of commerce at points of entry. By combining the Sentry Portal's detection capabilities with our Z Portal screening system, security officials will have the most comprehensive high-throughput, multi-view inspection system for both metallic and organic threat detection."
