American Science and Engineering, Inc. develops, manufactures, markets, and sells X-ray inspection and other detection products for homeland security, force protection, public safety, and other critical defense and security applications. The company provides maintenance, warranty, engineering, training and operator services related to these products. It manufactures X-ray inspection products that could be used to inspect parcels, baggage, vehicles, pallets, cargo containers, and people. The company sells its products throughout the world to various end-users, including authorities responsible for port and border security; customs agencies; military organizations; critical infrastructure and high-threat commercial and government facilities; aviation security agencies; and public safety and law enforcement agencies. The company’s products are used by these customers to help combat terrorism, trade fraud, drug trafficking, weapons smuggling, and illegal immigration. The company’s products are also used for military force protection and general facility security. It incorporates a variety of X-ray imaging and image processing technologies into its products to help its customers meet their operational requirements and solve real-world detection challenges. Additionally, the company provides a range of value-added and turnkey service offerings, including managed services, multi-vendor services, training, and global service and support. Products and Services The company’s products and services could be grouped into five different areas, such as cargo inspection systems, mobile cargo inspection systems, parcel and personnel screening inspection systems, custom products, and services and support. Cargo Inspection Systems The Cargo Inspection family of systems includes non-intrusive inspection systems that are primarily used for the screening of trucks, cars, cargo containers, pallets, and air cargo at locations including border crossings, seaports, military bases, airports, and cargo and transportation hubs. The Cargo Inspection systems are designed to combat trade fraud, drug trafficking, weapons smuggling, and terrorism. OmniView Gantry System: A high-energy cargo and vehicle inspection system. This system offers 6 MeV high-energy transmission imaging or 6/4 MeV dual-energy imaging. The OmniView Gantry System utilizes high energy X-rays that penetrate up to 400 mm (15.7 inches) of steel with very high resolution. Its design minimizes X-ray scatter to create a detailed X-ray image. When installed with the optional multi-view Z Backscatter module, the system provides an additional three X-ray views for left, right, and top-side imaging of cargo. The Z Backscatter images detect organic or low Z materials, including explosives, drugs, alcohol, and tobacco that transmission X-rays alone might not detect. The system’s multiple Z Backscatter imaging views of the cargo improve detection while facilitating interpretation of the X-ray image. The OmniView Gantry system’s scanning platform operates by moving on rails over vehicles and cargo. The system is bi-directional allowing for a throughput of approximately 25 trucks per hour. The OmniView Gantry system is well-suited for contraband and threat detection at ports, borders, military bases and other security checkpoints. Z Portal System: A multi-view, high throughput, low-dose, drive-through inspection system capable of scanning cargo and vehicles for threats and contraband. The Z Portal system is available in two configurations, a large tunnel version for screening trucks, buses, and cargo containers; and a small tunnel version for scanning passenger vehicles. The relocatable Z Portal system offers left, right and top-side imaging of the vehicle under examination. It also features corresponding Forwardscatter imaging from both sides and an optional top-down dual-energy transmission image. The images produced by the Z Portal System highlight organic materials, including explosives, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and stowaways. The optional dual-energy image provides enhanced detection of threat items, such as weapons, concealed under seats or in trucks. The Z Portal syst
