American Science And Engineering, Inc. Receives Order For Eight ZBV Systems From Middle East Customer For Checkpoint Security

BILLERICA, Mass., Sept. 30, 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 Company has received an order for eight ZBV ® mobile inspection systems from a customer in the Middle East. The ZBV systems will be used to inspect vehicles and cargo at high-risk checkpoints.

"The ZBV system continues to be the preferred mobile detection system for security and customs agencies worldwide," said Chuck Dougherty, AS&E's President and CEO. "We have experienced increased activity levels around the ZBV platform in international markets where the system's versatility, maneuverability, and unique detection capabilities make it ideal for a broad range of security applications."

ZBV: The Number One Selling Cargo and Vehicle Inspection System in the World

Representing a breakthrough in X-ray detection technology, AS&E's ZBV system is the number one selling cargo and vehicle inspection system on the market, with more than 650 systems sold to more than 128 different customers in 60 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; 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 vehicle borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDs), drugs, stowaways and other contraband in war zones and military bases and on U.S. ports and borders.
