Enhanced detection of threats and contraband through a combination of proven technologies
AS&E’s new Tx-View option for ZBV allows ZBV operators to simultaneously acquire dual-energy transmission images and photo-like Z Backscatter images of scanned vehicles for enhanced detection of threats and contraband. This combination provides Customs and security officials with the lowest cost, multi technology, mobile cargo and vehicle screening system available.
Using an innovative, low-profile detector design, the system is able to generate dual-energy images using the same X-ray source that generates the Z Backscatter images. Dual-energy transmission imaging provides enhanced detection of metallic threats and contraband, while Z Backscatter imaging provides photo-like images that are easy-to-interpret and highlight commonly-smuggled organic threats and contraband, such as narcotics, cigarettes, alcohol and currency.
With the ZBV operated in Stationary Scan Mode, dual-energy transmission and Z Backscatter images are acquired simultaneously as vehicles drive between the ZBV and the Tx-View trailer. When the Tx-View option is not deployed, the ZBV operates in normal drive-by mode.
The ZBV Tx-View option is deployed quickly and easily, is completely self-contained for storage and transport, and is built for the same rugged operating conditions as the ZBV.
AS&E’s new detector technology is packaged in highly durable, thin profile enclosures and used for both vertical and ground detectors. This combination of detectors provides dual-energy transmission images with no cut-off of typical passenger vehicles.
The Tx-View option is compatible with all models of ZBV and is available as an upgrade for current ZBV customers.
ZBV with the Tx-View option is ideal for use at critical infrastructure and other high-threat facilities, military installations, border crossings, and Customs checkpoints.
