Astrophysics Wins Contract With Brazilian TSA, Infraero; Deploys X-Ray Scanners to Brazilian Airports
X-Ray system help Brazil prepare for upcoming world sporting events.
City of Industry, Calif. (PRWEB) April 29, 2014 -- Astrophysics Inc., a leader in conventional and air cargo
security X-ray inspection systems, today announced it has won a major contract from Brazilian airport operator
Infraero to provide its superior X-ray screening systems for air cargo screening at 11 airports in Brazil.
“The Brazilian airport project is another example of Astrophysics’ ability to serve a global market, while
maintaining our made-in-America principles,” said Astrophysics CEO François Zayek. “Because we
manufacture our systems in California, we are able to deploy our systems quickly to airports in Brazil, allowing
Brazilian officials to provide the highest level of security. This will be particularly important as Brazil prepares
to host world-wide sporting events beginning this summer.”
Astrophysics won the Infraero contract in late 2013. The order called for 13 x-ray screening units to be installed
at 11 Infraero-managed airports. The product installation was handled by Astrophysics’ local partner and was
completed by the required December 2013 timeline.
“This order further solidifies Astrophysics as a major player in the air cargo screening market,” said Zayek.
“Our ability to quickly, efficiently and effectively deploy our products and services, along with our affordable
price points has contributed greatly to our increased market share. We are happy that Infraero has recognized this ability and we are prepared to
provide them with the security equipment they need.”
