  • Z Portal and Sentry Portal Systems Selected to Screen Air Cargo and Vehicles

American Science and Engineering, Inc. ("AS&E") (Nasdaq:ASEI), a leading worldwide supplier of innovative X-ray detection solutions, announced today the receipt of an $8.2 million order for Z Portal® and Sentry™ Portal cargo and vehicle screening systems from a Latin American government agency to protect an international airport.

The Z Portal and Sentry Portal systems will be used to safely and effectively screen vehicles and air cargo for explosive threats, drugs, and other contraband at this Latin American airport. One Z Portal system will be used to scan trucks entering the airport for manifest verification. The second Z Portal and Sentry Portal will be used in combination to scan pallets and containers or Unit Load Devices (ULDs) which are used to load luggage, freight, and mail onto aircraft. The systems will leverage ASE Connect — AS&E's networking solution for centralized management of X-ray equipment, images, and associated data.
