ABG and AS&E Revolutionise BIAP Security Detection
December 04, 2014
Al-Burhan Group, via strategic partnership with globally renowned x-ray equipment provider American Science & Engineering, have significantly heightened and improved security measures at our integrated business accommodation Al-Burhan Centre, located in the Baghdad International Airport Safe Zone.
The latest improvement can be seen in the acquisition of the MINI Z - the world's first handheld backscatter x-ray threat detection system. Incorporating the same technology that saw AS&E's Z Backscatter Van technology revolutionise the industry, the MINI Z is a compact, single-sided imager that can be used to scan objects in hard-to-reach areas, allowing for the effective screening of a wide variety of items such as suspicious bags, walls, furniture, small boats, aircraft, vehicle tires, and car interiors.
The MINI Z system provides effective detection of organic threats, contraband, and explosives for public safety, customs and border enforcement, and security officials. In the case of Al-Burhan Centre, guests enjoying their stay will be further comforted by the introduction of such an advanced technology to the BIAP region, as well as Iraq itself.
Al-Burhan Group's work with American Science & Engineering is further indication of ABG's consistent, passionate desire to provide the utmost in quality of care and pragmatic thinking when planning for the advancement of Iraqi infrastructure, through enabling international staff to reside in the country free of worry and harm.
