OSI SystemsAn OSI Systems subsidiary has received a pair of contracts worth up to $140 million combined from the Customs and Border Protection agency for the supply of cargo and vehicle screening systems.

OSI said Monday one potential two year, $64 million contract for American Science and Engineering covers deliveries of its Z Portal drive-through cargo and vehicle inspection system that works to provide up to six views of a vehicle under inspection.

The company will also provide its ZBV screening system as well as associated service, maintenance and training support under a separate contract with a potential value of $76 million over five years, according to a release published Tuesday.

ZBV is designed to inspect explosives, drugs, currency, alcohol, cigarettes and organic threats or contraband.
