American Science and Engineering has announced that the Company has received a $22.2 million order from the U.S. Government for 22 Z Backscatter Vans - the industry's top-selling mobile X-ray screening system. The contract includes ZBV operator training, spare parts, service, and warranty.

"This sizable order reinforces the continued value the U.S. Government places on our proprietary Z Backscatter Vans for critical counterterrorism missions," said Anthony Fabiano, President and CEO.

"With this order, the U.S. Government has added to its substantial fleet of ZBVs to secure checkpoints and borders from vehicle-borne explosives and other high-risk contraband.

"Field performance reports continue to be outstanding and we are honored to work closely with the U.S. Government to help accomplish their mission."
