American Science And Engineering, Inc. Receives $2.5 Million Order For ZBV Systems For Latin American Law Enforcement

BILLERICA, Mass., Sept. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Science and Engineering, Inc. ("AS&E") (Nasdaq:ASEI), a leading worldwide supplier of innovative X-ray detection solutions, announced today the receipt of a $2.5 million order for ZBV R-Class X-ray screening systems — AS&E's rugged ZBV system built for harsh terrain. The ZBV systems will be used by law enforcement officials in Latin America to screen vehicles at checkpoints. This is AS&E's first order from this Latin American country.

"With the ZBV system's outstanding field reports both from Latin America and around the globe, AS&E continues to add new customers in the region," said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E's President and CEO. "This customer joins some of the world's most prestigious government organizations that rely on the ZBV system's unmatched ability to detect drugs, currency, trade fraud, contraband and stowaways."

The ZBV system is available in three configurations — ZBV C-Class, ZBV R-Class, and ZBV S-Class — to meet the diverse needs of ZBV customers:

  • ZBV C-Class: The original ZBV system built with a custom coach on a Mercedes-Benz ® Sprinter cab chassis.
  • ZBV R-Class: Built for rugged terrain, the Ford ® F550 ® chassis offers 4WD, additional ground clearance and a crew cab for extra space.
  • ZBV S-Class: The newest addition to the ZBV line, built in a standard Mercedes-Benz Sprinter panel van for a contemporary appearance and with a reduced operational footprint for scanning objects in the tightest confines.
