Najaf Airport secures AS&E X-ray detection solutions

IRAQ, April 7, 2016

US-based American Science and Engineering (AS&E), a leading supplier of innovative X-ray detection solutions, has won an order to supply its Z Portal cargo screening system and Gemini parcel inspection systems to Iraq's Najaf International Airport.

AS&E X-ray detection systems are used for aviation screening operations by customers in Asia, Latin America, the European Union, and Africa.

Both the systems together will provide Najaf Airport with a comprehensive detection solution for scanning incoming vehicles as well as baggage for weapons, vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIED), drugs, and other threats and contraband, said a statement from the company.

Additionally, to further demonstrate its commitment to world-class security, Najaf Airport also entered into a five-year contract for continuing support by AS&E's industry-leading service team, it added.

Chuck Dougherty, AS&E’s president and CEO, said: “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, 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,” he added.

To secure this order, AS&E worked closely with its distributor, ASJ, in Najaf, Iraq, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
