American Science and Engineering (AS&E), a supplier of X-ray detection solutions, announced the receipt of an order for Yemen Customs for two of the Company's top selling Z Backscatter Vans (ZBV) with an exercisable option for two additional ZBV systems. Yemen Customs will use the ZBV systems to screen cargo and vehicles for explosive threats and contraband to fight terrorism at seaports and land border crossings.
“We commend the security officials at Yemen Customs for taking steps to increase security measures through the deployment of advanced detection technology,” said Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO. “Terror threats pose a constant challenge towards securing seaports and borders. With the ZBV system's exceptional versatility and detection capability, it is an ideal tool to screen trucks and vehicles for explosive threats, contraband and manifest verification. Its varied operating modes provide maximum maneuverability and flexibility for multiple applications, including port and border, checkpoint and high-threat facility security.”
