Self-contained, portable and easy to use The MINI Z™ system is the world's first handheld Z Backscatter® imaging system providing unsurpassed operational flexibility.

Using the same technology that made the ZBV the top-selling cargo and vehicle inspection system in the world, the MINI Z system's Z Backscatter technology highlights organic threats and contraband. With its small form factor and single-sided imaging, the MINI Z system can access hard-to-reach areas, allowing for the effective screening of a wide variety of items such as suspicious bags, walls, furniture, small boats, aircraft, vehicle tires, and car interiors. Unlike density meters, trace detectors, or transmission X-ray (Tx) systems, the MINI Z system is the only handheld Backscatter system that can produce images using single-sided imaging to quickly locate hidden potential threats or contraband behind organic surfaces.

The system's fast and easy set-up with user friendly, intuitive interface produces an image much more readily than portable transmission systems. Completely self-contained, with no required set-up and no consumables to replenish. Simply power the device on and you're ready to scan for potential threats and contraband. As an operator scans a target, an image appears in real-time on the system's dedicated tablet. The tablet-based GUI provides simple operation and management of the scan data.

The MINI Z system employs Z Backscatter technology—pioneered and perfected by AS&E. Z Backscatter produces an image and reveals organic threats and contraband that transmission X-ray systems can miss—such as explosives, currency, and drugs.

The MINI Z system was designed with safety in mind, and features reliable and redundant safety subsystems. The MINI Z system is safe for operators, bystanders, and the environment. The system conforms to applicable ANSI, ICRP, NCRP, and

Euratom radiation safety standards for annual allowable dose for the general public. Although the MINI Z system is a low-energy, low-dose Z Backscatter system, it is not designed to scan people.

The MINI Z system comes with a standard-sized tablet, which operates both as an operator interface and an image viewing monitor. It also comes equipped with a rugged transport case, battery charger, and spare batteries.
