Rapiscan Systems Ltd. has announced that, in the High Court of Justice in London, American Science & Engineering, Inc. has discontinued its patent infringement case as the case relates to the Rapiscan RXV Reflexion Vehicle.

With the discontinuation of its case against the RXV, Rapiscan reports that AS&E's case is now reduced to allegations of infringement that are apparently directed against a historical non-working prototype that was never completed and never sold.
