HIGH-ENERGY CARGO AND VEHICLE INSPECTION SYSTEM
The only relocatable, high-energy system available with multi-view capacity - three sided Z® Backscatter imaging views for left, right and top-sided imaging, combined with high-energy transmission for dense cargo.
DRIVE THROUGH CARGO AND VEHICLE SCREENING SYSTEM
The most comprehensive drive-through inspection system capable of scanning vehicles and their cargo for detecting explosives, drugs, or stowaways with three-sided Z® Backscatter imaging of the scanned vehicle.
MOBILE CARGO AND VEHICLE SCREENING SYSTEM
The number-one selling mobile X-ray inspection system on the market, the ZBV is a low cost, extremely maneuverable screening system built into a commercially available van. The Z® Backscatter detects explosives, drugs and stowaways.
PARCEL AND BAGGAGE INSPECTION
Superior threat detection for mail, parcel and baggage screening that combines dual-energy transmission and Z® Backscatter X-ray technology. Gemini offers the unique capability to simultaneously detect both metallic and non-metallic threats.
PERSONNEL SCREENING SYSTEM
Safely and quickly screens people for all types of contraband hidden under clothing, while ensuring privacy. SmartCheck displays metallic and non-metallic threats and contrabands, such as drugs, guns, knives, explosives and IED's.
The dual-energy transmission with Z® Backscatter technology for the most comprehensive threat detection available. It is the only system to combine advanced, commercially-proven technologies in a true multi-technology system.
The dual-energy image (right) shows common items in a suitcase: PDA, laptop power cord etc. The Z ® Backscatter image of the same suitcase reveals contraband, liquid explosive and a Glock Firearm.
The Omni-View high energy technology can penetrate 14 inches of steel or 8.5 feet of oil. The Z® Backscatter technology provides material discrimination quality, photo-like images, highlighting organic materials such as explosives and drugs.
HOW Z® BACKSCATTER REVEALS ORGANIC THREATS
As X-rays hit an object, some are absorbed which produces an transmission X-ray image, and others are "scattered". Z® Backscatter images are formed from the X-rays that are scattered back towards the X-ray source through a process called Compton scattering. Low atomic number materials scatter these X-rays back towards the source and indicate low-density materials, such as plastic explosives, plastic weapons, drugs and other organics.
RADIO DETECTION TECHNOLOGY
The combination of radiation detection with X-ray imaging greatly increases the probability of detecting a concealed radioactive source. Unshielded or moderately shielded sources will be sensed by the radiation detectors, while a heavily shielded source will create an anomaly in the X-ray image.
AS&E's imaging hardware and sophisticated ASE Inspection software further assists the operator in refining the inspection capability and provides the ability to analyze and store images for evidentiary purposes.
