American Science and Engineering Inc (AS&E), a leading worldwide supplier of innovative x-ray detection solutions, has announced the introduction of two new Gemini parcel inspection systems – Gemini 7555 and Gemini 100100. These solutions, along with the Gemini 6040, provide customers with a selection of systems to inspect everything from mail, baggage and break-bulk cargo within mailrooms, lobbies, checkpoints, airports, high threat facilities and other security sensitive areas.

Gemini continues to be the first and only conventional parcel inspection system to combine multiple technologies. AS&E’s proprietary Z Backscatter x-ray technology and dual-energy transmission allows operators to obtain the most information about the contents of a parcel. Operators simultaneously view two images, a Z Backscatter image and a dual-energy image, dramatically increasing the likelihood of finding hidden illegal materials. Gemini’s unique capability to detect both metallic and non-metallic threats – even in cluttered environments – makes it an invaluable inspection tool for security officials.

“With the introduction of additional Gemini systems, we are broadening our offering of the only proven multi-technology x-ray solution for screening parcels,” said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E’s president and CEO. “We believe that Gemini’s combination of Z Backscatter and dual-energy transmission provides the most attractive value proposition for parcel inspection available today.”
