AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- The Netherland's Customs Administration is using Z Backscatter mobile X-ray screening system by American Science and Engineering Inc. to check aircraft cargo.

The system will scan in real-time a variety of aircraft to reveal organic threats and contraband hidden in the structure of the airplane.

It is the second ZBV system deployed by Dutch Customs. The other is in use at the Port of Rotterdam.

"Dutch Customs is leveraging the ZBV system's flexible, mobile design to scan airplanes of all sizes for drugs and contraband," said Anthony Fabiano, AS&E's president and chief executive officer.

"Working closely with our clients, we provide creative and innovative solutions for their complex detection requirements. This new application for the ZBV system provides Dutch Customs with a trend-setting solution for their unique inspection needs."

AS&E's Z Backscatter Van is the No. 1-selling non-intrusive cargo and vehicle inspection system on the market. It is a low-cost, highly effective screening system built into a commercially available delivery van.
