Abstract
American Science and Engineering, Inc. has recently deployed X-ray inspection systems capable of screening large numbers of vehicles as they drive through a checkpoint. A general description of each of these transmission and backscatter X-ray inspection systems is presented. Other key integrated technologies are also described that enable screening of cargo using high quality X-ray images while the target vehicles are driven through the portal. Safety issues are discussed, as well as sample images created by fielded systems.
