MEET THE WORLD’S FIRST HANDHELD Z BACKSCATTER IMAGING SYSTEM—MINI Z
Find out why Popular Science Magazinenamed the MINI Z handheld X-ray scanner one of top inventions of the year in the Best of What’s New Award for 2014. We took the same technology that made the ZBV® system the top-selling cargo and vehicle inspection system in the world, and miniaturized it. The MINI Z system provides effective detection of organic threats, contraband, and explosives for public safety, customs and border enforcement, and security officials.
The MINI Z handheld X-ray system is a compact, single-sided imager that can be used to scan objects in hard-to-reach areas, allowing for the effective screening of a wide variety of items such as suspicious bags, walls, furniture, small boats, aircraft, vehicle tires, and car interiors.
Using AS&E’s signature Z Backscatter technology, the MINI Z system produces a real-time image of the scan target, highlighting organic materials that transmission X-ray systems can miss, such as explosives, currency, and drugs.
