American Science & Engineering Inc.'s Mini Z Backscatter Imaging System Debuts for Security and Law Enforcement Officials in the United Kingdom

American Science and Engineering Inc. announced the United Kingdom debut of MINI Z, the first handheld Z Backscatter imaging scanner for fast, portable, real-time detection of hidden drugs, explosives, and other organic threats and contraband behind non-metallic surfaces. The MINI Z system enables law enforcement, public safety and other security professionals to determine "on the go" if drugs, explosives or other threats are present in unattended bags, packages, and difficult-to-reach locations such as car interiors and aircraft compartments. The MINI Z system is ideal for security and public safety officials for many different applications, including: Border and Security Checkpoints: Inspecting vehicle bumpers, tires, and interiors for drugs, explosives, currency and other concealed threats and contraband. Drug Interdiction: Screening interiors of vehicles and facilities for concealed drugs and currency. Public Safety: Quick screening of unattended and suspicious bags and packages in public spaces. Event Security: Screening small personal items to ensure public safety. VIP Security: Security sweeps of meeting rooms and furniture to ensure personnel safety. Maritime Security: Screening the hulls and bulkheads of suspected drug running boats for contraband or narcotics. General Aviation Security: Inspecting the seats, compartments, and panels of planes for hidden contraband. Scans in places other systems can't reach: The MINI Z system is a compact, single-sided imager that can be used to scan objects in hard-to-reach areas, such as unattended bags, backpacks, or packages in a subway or bus station. Unsurpassed detection of organic threats: The MINI Z handheld system uses AS&E's signature Z Backscatter technology, an advanced X-ray imaging technology that produces a real-time image of the scan target, highlighting organic materials that transmission X-ray systems can miss, such as explosives, currency, and drugs. Unlike density meters, trace detectors, or portable transmission X-ray systems, the MINI Z system produces an easy-to-interpret image to quickly detect organic threats and contraband behind non-metallic surfaces. An easy to use, all-in-one imaging system: The MINI Z system is self-contained and does not require set-up, enabling immediate operation. The operator controls the scanning function using a simple, intuitive GUI on the system's dedicated tablet, upon which an image of the scanned target appears in real-time. Safe, secure, and dependable operation: The MINI Z system is safe for operators, bystanders, and the environment. The system's X-ray dose conforms to the appropriate ANSI, ICRP, NCRP, and EURATOM radiation safety standards. Although the MINI Z is a low-energy and low-dose Z Backscatter system, it is not designed to scan people. The MINI Z system must be used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, as well as applicable laws and regulations.
