American Science and Engineering, Inc. (AS&E) has announced a $3.5-million order for its cargo inspection systems from Restrata, an Olive Group company, of a major housing project in Baghdad.
Restrata is acting as the security partner for the giant Bismaya development, 10 kilometers south of Baghdad. AS&E's cargo X-ray inspection systems will be used to help ensure the security of the critical infrastructure project to build 100,000 housing units that will accommodate a half million Iraqi citizens.
Chuck Dougherty, AS&E's President and CEO, said:
"We are proud that AS&E was selected to support this important project and participate in the economic development in the region ... Providing comprehensive screening for all vehicles and cargo entering the city, AS&E's inspection solutions will reduce the level of vulnerability at this massive site and safeguard personnel, citizens, and the critical assets of the new development project in Bismaya."
