American Science and Engineering (AS&E) has introduced the ZBV with Tx-View dual-energy transmission option for its line of Z Backscatter Van (ZBV) mobile cargo and vehicle screening systems.
Featuring new detector technology, the Tx-View for ZBV provides enhanced detection of weapons and metallic components of vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices alongside the ZBV’s Z Backscatter imaging.
Over 750 ZBV systems have been sold to date, and is used by government agencies, border authorities, law enforcement personnel, military organizations, and security agencies in more than 65 countries. The ZBV with Tx-View option adds enhanced detection capabilities and adherence to domestic and international radiation safety standards.
The new Tx-View option for ZBV allows security personnel to simultaneously acquire dual-energy transmission and Z Backscatter images of scanned cargo and vehicles for detection of threats and contraband. Dual-energy transmission imaging is designed for detection of metallic threats, such as weapons and artillery shells, while Z Backscatter imaging delivers the clarity needed to identify commonly-smuggled organic threats and contraband, such as narcotics, explosives, cigarettes, alcohol and currency. The Tx-View option is completely self-contained in a trailer for storage and transport. Source: AS&E
