AS&E specializes in detection technologies that can uncover dangerous and elusive threats, including
explosives, plastic and metal weapons, and radioactive devices, such as dirty bombs and nuclear WMD. These X-ray systems are
deployed worldwide at ports and borders, and military and high-threat facilities. Our signature technology – Z® Backscatter – gives our systems unparalleled detection capabilities, making it the technology of choice when the highest levels
of security are required.
The innovative Gemini
parcel inspection system from AS&E combines dual-energy transmission with Z Backscatter technology for the most
comprehensive threat detection available. The dual-energy transmission X-ray easily detects metallic objects such as knives
and guns. To learn more about Gemini click here.
AS&E's new OmniView Relocatable Gantry System combines advanced technologies
to provide one of the most comprehensive cargo inspection systems available. This is the only multi-view X-ray inspection
tool that provides high penetration of dense materials and liquids; discrimination of organics and inorganics; clear, photo-like
images that are easy to interpret; and optional Radioactive Threat Detection — all in a compact high-throughput system.

SmartCheck system is the most effective way to screen for contraband and threats hidden under a person's
clothing. Its capability goes well beyond that of metal detectors because it simultaneously detects both metallic and non-metallic
objects, such as guns and knives, plastic explosives, composite weapons, drugs and other hidden threats and contraband. SmartCheck
features a privacy filter to protect the privacy of screened persons and still effectively reveals threats. The provacy filter
uses a software algorithm presenting only outlines of the scanned individual and any potential threat on the body. To
learn more about this technology its application and health and privacy issues as described by AS&E, click here.

screener using the image privacy filter, scroll to the bottom of this page, fill out your info, and ask them to send you the image (email) or the brochure (mail).

The Rapiscan Secure 1000® produces high resolution images that enable the operator to easily
identify concealed threat and contraband items. The Rapiscan Secure 1000 is ideal for high security environments because both
organic (e.g. explosives, narcotics, ceramic weapons) and inorganic (e.g. metal) materials are apparent in the image. Additionally,
Rapiscan Systems has developed advanced techniques to protect the privacy of the person being screened while enabling effective
detection of threat items. In a recent study, 19 out of 20 persons preferred a Secure 1000 scan to an invasive pat-down physical
search. The system is completely safe for all persons and exceeds the requirements of health authorities worldwide by producing
less than 10 microRem per exam. To learn more, click here.
