The Drug Enforcement Administration today announced intentions to issue a sole source award to American Science and Engineering, Inc. (AS&E), the manufacturer of the Z Backscatter inspection system.
The award will be for maintenance of the Z Backscatter Van and training for its operators.
This smaller version of the company’s Z Portal configurations is made for scanning cars, vans, small trucks, and their cargo. Its Z Backscatter® imaging provides photo-like images from the top and sides simultaneously—and quickly highlights organic threats and contraband, such as stowaways, explosives, currency, drugs, and alcohol.
