Cargo screening

Appears in the issue.

American Science and Engineering of Billerica, Massachusetts, has introduced Z Portal, its second-generation multiview drive-through screening system for detecting stowaways, explosives, and other contraband in cars, vans, and trucks at congested security checkpoints and border crossings. The portal, available in two sizes, uses Z Backscatter imaging to produce images from three sides of the cargo—left, right, and top—to offer maximum detection capability. The technology allows safe scanning of the entire vehicle, permitting the driver to remain in the cab and speeding up screening to facilitate traffic flow. The flexible design is easily integrated with existing high-energy inspection systems for maximum detection capability.
