American Science And Engineering, Inc. Receives Orders For Five Z Backscatter Van (ZBV) Systems For Middle East And African Government Agencies

BILLERICA, Mass., Jan. 17, 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 orders for five of the Company's top-selling Z Backscatter Vans ("ZBV") for Middle East and African government agencies. The ZBV ® cargo and vehicle screening systems will be used for counterterrorism missions.

"The ZBV system's ability to effectively and safely detect threats, explosives, and contraband has been proven again and again," said Anthony R. Fabiano, President and CEO of AS&E. "With its maneuverability, flexibility and ability to reveal terrorist threats and contraband, our ZBV system is an invaluable tool for counterterrorism operations."

Z Backscatter Van (ZBV): The Number One Selling Cargo and Vehicle Inspection System in the World

A breakthrough in X-ray detection technology, AS&E's Z Backscatter Van is the number one selling cargo and vehicle inspection system on the market, with more than 625 systems sold to more than 125 different customers in 57 countries. Since its introduction in 2003, the ZBV system has consistently received the highest marks for quality, reliability, and performance with a proven record of detection results. The ZBV system is a low-cost, highly mobile screening system built into a commercially available delivery van. It allows for immediate deployment in response to security threats, and its high throughput capability facilitates rapid inspections.

The ZBV system is used by leading government agencies, border authorities, military bases, law enforcement departments and security agencies worldwide, including: U.S. Customs and Border Protection on multiple borders; Abu Dhabi Customs to safeguard borders; NATO Communications and Information Agency at military checkpoints; Bulgaria Customs combating trade fraud on borders; Dutch Customs Administration to scan empty airplanes; the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to protect a high-level facility; the Port of Venice to perform rapid inspections of suspect vehicles; Tunisian Customs to combat trade fraud; customs security for a Port Authority in Asia; and the Democratic Republic of Congo to fight the illegal export of timber. The U.S. government has deployed hundreds of ZBV systems for homeland security and force protection applications to detect VBIEDs (vehicle borne improvised explosive devices), drugs, stowaways and other contraband in war zones, military bases, and on U.S. ports and borders.
