U.S. Air Force Orders 66 XIS-7858

The U. S. Air Force awarded Astrophysics Inc. a contract for 66 XIS-7858 x-ray inspection systems in September 2011. The systems will be installed at 15 bases domestically and 16 or more bases internationally for inspection of all carry-on and checked passenger baggage. As this order requires large scale international coordination, Astrophysics provided examples of our previous large contracts with international customers as evidence of our credibility and experience.

Astrophysics Tom Schorling, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Astrophysics Inc. stated, “Astrophysics award from the US Air Force reflects our growing presence on the larger market stage and the opening of further high profile sales opportunities abroad.”
