AS&E Awarded $245 M IDIQ Contract for SmartCheck Next Generation Advanced Imaging Technology

  • AS&E Receives First Delivery Order for Three Systems

American Science and Engineering, Inc. ("AS&E") (Nasdaq:ASEI), a leading worldwide supplier of innovative X-ray detection solutions, announced today it has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity ("IDIQ") contract from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) with a ceiling value of $245 million in purchases of its SmartCheck® next generation of Advanced Imaging Technology. The IDIQ contract also includes service, maintenance, and training for the SmartCheck systems. As part of this contract, AS&E received its first delivery order for three SmartCheck systems to be tested at TSA facilities.

The SmartCheck system was designed as a primary personnel screening device to detect concealed threats such as metallic and non-metallic weapons, explosives, and other prohibited items. The SmartCheck system includes the Automated Target Recognition (ATR) capability, which reduces privacy concerns and decreases passenger processing time by displaying only a generic figure with potential threat areas highlighted. In addition, the reduced size of the SmartCheck system is suited for smaller checkpoint configurations.

"With imminent threats around the world, we are proud to continue our work that is more critical than ever."
