AS&E Receives First CBP Delivery Order for One Medium Energy Mobile Scanner under IDIQ

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.
