About ZBV Military Trailer

AS&E's ZBV Mil Trailer is a rugged X-ray screening system built onto a standard military trailer. With one-sided, Z BackscatterTM imaging, security officials can use the ZBV Mil Trailer for screening vehicles, containers, and other cargo for terrorist threats and contraband -- simply by towing the trailer past the subjects, or by remaining stationary while vehicles drive past the trailer. The ZBV Mil Trailer employs AS&E’s Z Backscatter technology, which produces photo-like images of the contents of a container or vehicle, highlighting organic materials such as explosives and other high-risk materials.
