American Science and Engineering, Inc. has been awarded an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for a Medium Energy Mobile Scanner.
AS&E is one of four vendors that received the award and an initial delivery order under the IDIQ contract for one mobile scanner. The AS&E Medium Energy Mobile Scanner will leverage the company’s innovative detection technology on a new mobile platform that will be used by CBP to perform non-intrusive inspection of incoming conveyances at US Ports of Entry beginning in 2016.
“We are pleased that CBP has elected to add another AS&E mobile system in support of its critical security mission,” said AS&E President and CEO Chuck Dougherty. “Broadening our portfolio of port and border security detection solutions with the AS&E Medium Energy Mobile Scanner will provide our customers with another innovative AS&E product that meets their rigorous requirements for performance, reliability, and cost.”
AS&E has sold more than 770 ZBV vehicle and cargo systems to 140 customers in 66 countries. AS&E’s ZBV and Z Portal cargo and vehicle screening systems are deployed by CBP on the southwest border and other Ports of Entry to inspect cargo and vehicles for threats and contraband.
