Astrophysics, a leading global designer in innovative x-ray technology, was recently awarded an indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to provide Low Energy Portals (LEP’s) for non-intrusive inspection (NII) of Privately Owned Vehicle s (POV’s) at U.S. border crossings.
The contract has an order option period of up to 12 years beginning September 21, 2021, with a total value of up to $390 million. The initial order is for over $82 million, including options, with the first HXC-LaneScan™ deployment in 2022.
Featuring a slim 12ft footprint, the HXC-LaneScan™ fits inside a standard traffic lane and accommodates POV’s including trucks, vans, and SUV’s. The HXC-LaneScan™ uniquely features a large single monitor with an intuitive interface, offering operators a visually simplified and more efficient way to quickly clear or identify threats and contraband. The Astrophysics HXC-LaneScan™ is proudly designed and assembled in California, USA to the highest quality standards.
Under the IDIQ, Astrophysics will deploy the HXC-LaneScan™ to support CBP’s mission in protecting the American people, safeguarding our borders, and enhancing the nation’s economic prosperity.
CEO François Zayek commented: “As an American manufacturer, we are honored to continue our partnership with the U.S. CBP and excited that Astrophysics and the HXC-LaneScan™ was selected to support its critical security mission. We are confident that our advanced technology provides the ideal solution for CBP to efficiently examine privately owned vehicles (POV’s) at the U.S. border.”
In addition to this contract, Astrophysics has over 100 conventional x-ray systems with U.S. CBP Small NII, including the XIS-6545, XIS-1080, XIS-100XDV and XIS-1818 located at border sites throughout the U.S. and Canada.
