AS&E discontinues patent infringement claim against Rapiscan RXV
Rapiscan Systems Ltd. has announced that, in the High Court of Justice in London, American Science & Engineering, Inc. (AS&E) has discontinued its patent infringement case as the case relates to the Rapiscan RXV Reflexion Vehicle (RXV). AS&E had brought suit claiming infringement of a UK patent, but discontinued its case against the RXV on the basis of a description of the RXV and the way in which it works.
With the discontinuation of its case against the RXV, Rapiscan reports that AS&E’s case is now reduced to allegations of infringement that are apparently directed against a historical non-working prototype that was never completed and never sold.
The RXV is a rapid deployment mobile inspection platform that utilizes backscatter X-rays to identify certain threats and contraband items such as explosives, narcotics, stowaways, tobacco and currency. Jules Anderson, Sales Director at Rapiscan Systems Ltd., stated, “The RXV was designed to be unlike any other product of its type. We designed the RXV from the ground up to meet the needs of today’s customers, and tailored the RXV to suit modern methods of inspection.”
