Non-intrusive, low-cost, highly mobile
ZBV S-Class, the newest addition to the ZBV line, is built in a standard Mercedes Sprinter panel van for a contemporary appearance with a reduced operational footprint for scanning objects in the tightest confines. With hundreds of systems sold, AS&E’s mobile Z Backscatter Van (ZBV) is the top-selling non-intrusive cargo and vehicle inspection system in the world. Low-cost, easy to use, and highly versatile, the ZBV S-Class system is built into a standard panel 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 maneu- verability and flexibility for multiple applications, and it can be immediately deployed in response to security threats. With easy-to-interpret imaging for rapid analysis, the ZBV system enables high throughput 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 optional Tx-View™ imaging and Radioactive Threat Detection
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-only X-ray systems miss, including explosives, currency, and drugs. The ZBV system is ideal for screening vehicles for large quantities of concealed cigarettes, currency, drugs, car and truck bombs, and stowaways. It can also be equipped with the Tx-View option, which provides a dual-energy transmission image for enhanced detection of metallic threats, including weapons. The ZBV system’s optional Radioactive Threat Detection feature is capable of identifying low levels of radioactivity from both gamma rays and neutrons.
