Rep. Napolitano was in City of Industry to tour the factory and witness demonstrations of current and new
technologies including Astrophysics’ latest screening innovation, the VI7 motion view X-ray system which
uses seven viewing angles to get a near-3D image of the parcel or bag being screened.
In addition to the new VI7 motion view X-ray system, Rep. Napolitano experienced first-hand Astrophysics’
dedication to its R&D process. The company’s investment will further advance Astrophysics’ already dominant
position in Critical Infrastructure into new markets such as Ports and Borders as well as Transportation.
Additionally, Astrophysics is developing new technologies that will enable the company to provide advanced
screening solutions to customers carrying cargo and passengers on commercial aircraft and sea-going vessels.
“Our commitment to provide quality and customized security solutions for our customers, has transformed
Astrophysics into the fastest growing company in the industry. Our fast turn-around times can only be achieved
because of our strategy in keeping as much of our manufacturing and procurement here in California as we
can.” said François Zayek, CEO of Astrophysics. “It is good to know we have Rep. Napolitano’s commitment
to assist our mission to provide products and services that are designed to deter acts of violence.”
During the visit, Astrophysics stressed the importance of the ability for companies like itself to compete in
government contracts to sell their products here at home. Astrophysics is developing the most robust
technology at the best value in the industry and it is creating jobs and growing its business which will further
support a strong economy in the Los Angeles area.
