Astrophysics X-ray System deployed to the Pacific fleet to protect US warship
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., – Astrophysics Inc., a leader in conventional and air cargo security X-ray inspection systems, today announced it has deployed the first ruggedized X-ray system from a contract won last year from the United States Navy. After passing the Factory Acceptance Test by skilled Navy personnel, the X-ray System was deployed to an aircraft carrier in the Pacific fleet to help protect entry control points at seaports around the world. The X-ray System, designed to deploy quickly from the Navy vessel, will be used to screen visitors and personnel before they embark and to accelerate offloading processes.
Astrophysics was selected from a large field of competitors to fulfill the five-year contract to supply and deploy ruggedized X-ray inspection systems to the Navy XRBS program. "We are extremely proud that our system, designed and manufactured here in the US, was deployed to a Navy vessel of this scale" said Francois Zayek, CEO of Astrophysics. "We are also proud to be helping to protect our nation's warfighters in their efforts to keep our nation safe and secure." The Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract was issued by the Navy XRBS program, valued at $ 6M, and managed by the Crane Division out of Indiana.
