AS&E to install x-ray detection systems at Al Najaf International in Iraq

American Science and Engineering (AS&E), a manufacturer of industrial x-ray detection solutions, has been contracted to deliver its Z Portal cargo screening system (left) and multiple Gemini x-ray inspection systems for Al Najaf International Airport in Iraq.

When combined, these systems will provide Najaf Airport with a comprehensive detection solution for scanning incoming vehicles as well as passenger luggage for weapons, vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED), drugs, and other threats and contraband.

Chuck Dougherty, president and CEO, AS&E, said, “Customers with vital security missions rely on AS&E’s proven technology to meet their detection requirements in high-threat environments. We are proud to have been selected by Najaf Airport, one of Iraq’s busiest airports, to provide the advanced technology and expert technical support it needs to protect the safety of passengers, personnel, and infrastructure.”

Sheikh Faed Al-Shimary, director general of the Najaf Airport Authority (NAA), the airport operator, said, “Passengers and freight forwarders are increasingly turning to Najaf Airport for their international air travel and shipping requirements. We chose AS&E’s comprehensive detection solutions because they provide rapid inspection of vehicles and carry-on luggage in a high-security and high-traffic environment while ensuring the flow of passengers and commerce – and because it is well-known in our region for delivering exceptional, responsive customer service.”
