Astrophysics Awarded $6 M US Navy Contract
- Astrophysics X-ray Systems Selected by the U.S. Navy to Protect Vessels Deployed to Foreign Ports
Astrophysics, Inc. , a leader in conventional and air cargo security X-ray inspection systems, today announced it has won a $6 million contract from the United States Navy to help protect entry control points deployed at seaports around the world. The company's advanced X-ray solutions will be used to screen visitors and personnel before they embark and accelerate offloading processes.
Astrophysics was selected from a large field of competitors to fulfill the Navy XRBS program's five-year contract to supply and deploy ruggedized X-ray inspection systems. Because Astrophysics systems are engineered and manufactured in the U.S., the company is able to customize and ship its advanced X-ray solutions quickly, making Astrophysics an ideal option for the U.S. Navy as well as the TSA and others.
