OSI Systems Wins Government Cargo and Vehicle Screening Contracts

OSI Systems Inc announced on Oct. 10 that its security division has been awarded a multi-year contract valued at approximately $21 million from a U.S. government agency to provide service and maintenance support for its cargo and vehicle inspection systems, including the OmniView® Gantry cargo inspection system, Z Portal® passenger vehicle screening system, and the Sentry® Portal cargo inspection system.

OmniView Gantry uses high-energy X-ray transmission inspection for high-penetration into complex cargo and dense objects up to 400 mm of steel. Z Portal provides drive-through, multi-view screening for cars and vans with Z Backscatter® imaging, and the Sentry drive-through inspection system is intended for trucks and cargo containers.

The service and support contract follows a week after an order valued at approximately $10 million for multiple units of OSI System’s ZBV® mobile cargo and vehicle screening system, which are expected to be deployed overseas by a U.S. government customer. The ZBV system is designed for immediate deployment and rapid inspection to reveal explosives, drugs, currency, alcohol, cigarettes, and other organic threats or contraband.
