American Science And Engineering, Inc. Wins Gold In GSN Border Security Awards Competition

BILLERICA, Mass., March 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Science and Engineering, Inc. ("AS&E") (Nasdaq:ASEI) a leading worldwide supplier of innovative X-ray detection solutions, announced today that the Company's breakthrough Z Portal® cargo and vehicle screening system has won Gold for Best Explosives/ID/Contraband Detection at the GSN: Government Security News 2013 Border Security Awards. The winners will be announced and awards presented at the Border Security Expo in Phoenix, Arizona, March 12-13, 2013.

The GSN award recognizes AS&E's Z Portal system — a breakthrough cargo and vehicle screening solution developed in response to the essential need of border security authorities around the world to quickly and safely detect drugs and contraband at checkpoints without impeding the flow of commerce. Customers include U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), who deployed the Z Portal system in 2008 at the San Ysidro, California border crossing — the busiest land port of entry in the United States.

"It is an honor to have AS&E's Z Portal system recognized for the superior detection it has provided for border security officials around the world," said Anthony R. Fabiano, AS&E's President and CEO. "This award closely follows the recognition of the ZBV system as the 'Best Explosives Detection Solution' at the 2012 Homeland Security Awards. We are grateful to GSN and its panel of judges for once again selecting AS&E's unique detection solutions."

The GSN Border Security Awards program was established to honor outstanding vendor technologies, successful government strategies and implementations, and exceptional individuals whose ideas or actions have enhanced border security. The winners were selected by a panel of judges led by Chuck Brooks, who earned an MA in International Relations from the University of Chicago, was an Adjunct Professor at Johns Hopkins University, was the first Director of Legislative Affairs for the Science and Technology Directorate of the Department of Homeland Security and was a defense and foreign policy advisor to the late Senator Arlen Spector.
