AS&E's presentation, titled "Finding the Most Effective Non-Intrusive X-ray Solutions for Cargo and Vehicle Screening that Meet Real-World Operational Challenges," was held on Thursday, November 15th at 10:55 a.m. GMT during the Freight & Cargo Security Workshop. The presentation included case studies and real world implementations.

AS&E also demonstrated its multi-technology Gemini™ parcel X-ray inspection system and the technology for its cargo inspection systems at Stand E26.

AS&E's new multi-lingual corporate website is designed to greatly enhance the user experience with streamlined navigation, expanded product information, mobile optimisation, an extensive image gallery, a ticker with actual seizure data, and a technology resource center.

AS&E solutions for cargo and vehicle screening

With a proven track record and best-in-class technology, AS&E cargo systems are available in mobile, drive-through portal, or gantry configurations, including options for harsh environments, deployments in remote locations, and high-throughput systems for congested areas. AS&E cargo and vehicle screening systems help customers effectively inspect cars, vans, trucks, and cargo containers for threats and contraband.

Gemini: Unique multi-technology parcel inspection systems

Gemini is a multi-technology X-ray parcel and baggage inspection system, which combines AS&E's Z Backscatter™ technology with dual-energy transmission for superior threat detection. AS&E's Z Backscatter technology provides enhanced detection of organic materials, such as explosives (including sheet and liquid explosives), drugs, and plastic weapons, which are easily missed by transmission-only systems in cluttered parcels. Z Backscatter technology's photo-like images are easy to interpret, thereby speeding analysis time, decreasing bags flagged for secondary screening, and reducing operator fatigue. Dual-energy transmission provides outstanding image quality, and enables the quick detection of a wide variety of threats such as guns, knives, and wires for Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDS). In addition, dual-energy offers organic and metallic discrimination.
