American Science & Engineering Inc.ASEI , a leading maker of innovative X-ray detection solutions, introduced its next-generation Z Portal system, a first-of-its-kind drive-through cargo and vehicle inspection system - a comprehensive detection solution packed in a single, drive-through platform.

The compact system packs in the firm's latest source and detector technologies, facilitating better image quality, coupled with higher throughput. Using multiple detection technologies, the compact system can deliver up to six views of scanned passenger vehicles, buses, trucks and cargo and works perfectly even in space-constrained locations.

The Z Portal system's unique detector design combines dual-energy transmission with the company's Z Backscatter and Forwardscatter technologies, thus providing better material discrimination while also detecting organic and metallic anomalies. This will help operators to identify threats and contraband more easily.

It also enables greater visibility into scanned objects at higher scan speeds and in a smaller footprint. The higher throughput rates are achieved without sacrificing image quality, giving ports and borders the perfect solution for screening (primary and/or secondary) of cargo and vehicles.

The newly redesigned system integrates seamlessly into diverse customer sites and fits into existing traffic lanes as well. It boasts a comprehensive range of optional features and operating concepts, thus enabling customization in accordance with each client's distinctive workflow and security requirements.

The new state-of-the-art Z Portal system builds on the success of its precedent, which is currently employed in airports, borders, ports and high-threat facilities all over the world.
