Non-intrusive, low-cost, highly mobile
Z Backscatter Van is the top-selling non-intrusive cargo and vehicle inspection system in the world. Low-cost, easy to use, and highly reliable, the ZBV system is built into a commercially available delivery van and can screen vehicles, sea containers, and other cargo for threats and contraband simply by driving past the objects.
The ZBV system’s single-sided configuration and varied operating modes provide maximum maneuverability and flexibility for multiple applications, and it can be immediately deployed in response to security threats. With photo-like imaging for rapid analysis, the ZBV system enables highthroughput screening of vehicles and cargo. For personnel safety in dangerous environments, a remote console is available for operating the system in stationary scan mode from a distance of up to 500 meters.
Z Backscatter plus Forwardscatter®
The ZBV system employs Z Backscatter technology—
pioneered and perfected by AS&E.
Z Backscatter produces a clear, photo-like image and reveals threats and contraband that transmission X-ray systems miss, including explosives, currency, and drugs. It can also be equipped with Forwardscatter technology, which provides a second scatter perspective to display dense regions of images.
The ZBV system can image 10 lbs (4.5 kg) of organic material, such as C4 or cocaine, placed behind 0.24 inches (6 mm) of steel when scanned from a distance of 5 ft (1.5 m). The ZBV system’s optional Radioactive Threat Detection feature is capable of identifying low levels of radioactivity from both gamma rays and neutrons. The ZBV system is ideal for screening vehicles for large quantities of concealed cigarettes, currency, drugs, car and truck bombs, and stowaways.
