Cargo & Vehicle Inspection – ZBV


The Z Backscatter Van (“ZBV”) is the most maneuverable, versatile, and successful cargo and vehicle screening system on the market. Featuring Z Backscatter technology—pioneered and perfected by AS&E—the ZBV system can quickly reach places other systems can’t go, and scan objects other systems can’t inspect.

Its photo-like imaging quickly and clearly reveals threats like explosives, drugs, currency, and trade-fraud items such as alcohol and cigarettes—even in high-throughput environments like border crossings and security checkpoints. The ZBV system gives your team:

  • The ability to investigate targets that could not be scanned before
  • Maximum flexibility, maneuverability, and ease of use
  • Photo-like imaging of vehicles and cargo for rapid analysis
  • A system proven to be effective and reliable—even in harsh environments
  • The lowest cost of ownership for a mobile screening system
