CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. – Astrophysics, Inc. hosted U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) at its Ontario-based research facility and demonstrated the company’s next-generation x-ray screening technologies. As Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Rep. Royce is a strong advocate for protecting America’s citizens and its interests, and the security systems he observed offered a glimpse into the future of x-ray security.
Astrophysics demonstrated its multi-view, computer tomography “3D” imaging system along with its new HXC-320 vehicle scanner. This next generation vehicle scanner efficiently and safely scans small trucks and cars without requiring the driver or passenger to leave their vehicle providing a new level of safety for our Port and Borders, Armed Forces bases, and any location requiring high throughput vehicle screening.
Said Astrophysics, Inc. CEO Francois Zayek: “It was an honor to once again host Chairman Royce at our facility and discuss the need for new security solutions to protect citizens around the world and particularly the need for improved technology in the area of cargo screening.”
