American Science and Engineering, which makes X-ray detection systems for security and defence, has signed a deal giving Accuray exclusive rights to make and sell linear accelerators for medical uses. Accuray, which markets the CyberKnife robotic, image-guided radiosurgery system, will now be able to produce the X-band linear accelerator for the system. Accuray has acquired the manufacturing business and will continue to supply the linear accelerators to AS&E for non-medical purposes. AS&E is based in Billerica, Massachusetts, but the manufacturing facility is in Mountain View, California, while Accuray is also in California, in Sunnyvale.
