AS&E Launches North American Public Safety Channel

BILLERICA, Mass., July 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Science and Engineering, Inc. ("AS&E") (Nasdaq:ASEI), a leading worldwide supplier of innovative X-ray detection solutions, today announced the launch of a new AS&E Public Safety Channel in North America. The Company has entered into agreements with six public safety channel partners servicing law enforcement, first responders, and other public safety markets across the U.S. at the local, metropolitan, county, and state levels.

AS&E's new partners are Communications International, Cooper General, Dailey-Wells, Eastern Communications, RACOM, and Tactical Public Safety. These channel partners will offer AS&E's advanced X-ray technology, including the new, breakthrough MINI Z™ handheld screening system, the ZBV® family of cargo and vehicle screening systems, the Gemini® line of parcel inspection systems, and the SmartCheck® personnel screening system.

"With over 150 years of collective experience, our new channel partners have a deep understanding of their customers' security challenges as they protect against threats to public safety," said Chuck Dougherty, AS&E's President and CEO. "AS&E systems are the detection technology of choice for customs, military, and security personnel because of their effectiveness, ease of use, and reliable performance, and we believe they will be a perfect fit for public safety applications as well. We are confident that our new channel partners—with their market knowledge and close customer relationships—will help us establish a North American channel as a first step in our global strategy to expand the application reach of our technology to include public safety."

"We are very excited to be one of the first indirect public safety channels for AS&E," said Jim Foley, CEO of Tactical Public Safety, LLC. "The response to the MINI Z system at the Police Security Expo in June was extremely positive, with demo participants commenting on its light weight, simple operation, and how easy it is to see concealed objects. We believe our partnership with AS&E will help us provide officials with mission-critical tools to meet current and future threats to public safety."

Each AS&E channel partner will provide local training, service, and operations support to ensure that public safety customers leverage the full capabilities of AS&E's advanced security detection systems.
