American Science and Engineering (AS&E), a supplier of X-ray detection solutions, received a US$5.5-million order from Abu Dhabi Customs Administration for multiple X-ray screening systems and X-ray inspection systems. The systems will be used to screen vehicles, cargo and passenger bags at border checkpoints in Abu Dhabi, the largest emirate of the United Arab Emirates.
“We have a relationship with Abu Dhabi customs providing a range of product offerings to secure their strategic borders from smuggling, trade fraud and other threats,” said Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO. “We share their goal to balance minimum restrictions on trade while providing maximum security by utilizing the best inspection technologies. This repeat order demonstrates the confidence of the government of Abu Dhabi and the customs directorate of its Finance Department in AS&E products and services to help safeguard their borders.”
