American Science And Engineering, Inc. Receives First Order For Z Backscatter Van (ZBV) S-Class System For Spain Customs And Excise

BILLERICA, Mass., Jan. 14, 2013 (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 an order for the Company's top-selling, patented Z Backscatter Van (ZBV) from Indra Sistemas SA, AS&E's exclusive distributor in Spain, for use by Spain Customs and Excise, a department within the Spanish Tax Agency. With this order, Spain will obtain its first ZBV system, which will be used on their borders for trade fraud interdiction of items such as cigarettes. This also marks the first order for the recently introduced ZBV S-Class, which offers a reduced operational footprint and a sleek, contemporary appearance.

"Spain Customs and Excise joins many of the world's most prestigious customs and government organizations that rely on the ZBV system to regulate trade fraud across their borders and collect unpaid revenue on smuggled goods," said Anthony R. Fabiano, President and CEO of AS&E. "Our highly mobile ZBV screening system has proven time and again its ability to safely and successfully detect contraband, with many reported seizures of tobacco and alcohol. With the ZBV S-Class, Spain Customs and Excise will have a more streamlined chassis that provides added flexibility for scanning objects in space constrained areas on their borders."
