Astrophysics, Inc. Awarded $6 Million United States Navy Contract

Astrophysics Inc. announced it has won a $6 million contract from the United States Navy to help protect entry control points deployed at seaports around the world.  The company’s advanced X-ray solutions will be used to screen visitors and personnel before they embark and to accelerate offloading processes.

Astrophysics was selected from a large field of competitors to fulfill the Navy XRBS program’s five-year contract to supply and deploy ruggedized X-ray inspection systems. Because Astrophysics systems are engineered and manufactured in the U.S., the company is able to customize and ship its advanced X-ray solutions quickly, making Astrophysics an ideal option for government organizations including the U.S. Navy as well as the TSA and others.

“Astrophysics is known around the world for market-leading screening solutions,” said François Zayek, CEO of Astrophysics. “We have a long history of helping protect the men and women that protect our great nation and we are pleased to announce this latest contract.”

The Navy selected Astrophysics’ XIS-7858 system which features a standard 180kV generator for heightened penetration and enhanced object recognition. The XIS-7858 is the ideal screening solution for any location in need of increased screening dimensions within a consolidated space. The Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract was issued by the Navy XRBS program which is managed by the Crane Division out of Indiana.
