Optosecurity redefines industry cost and performance paradigms
QUEBEC, Jan. 9, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Optosecurity Inc., a leader in
threat detection technology, announced today that, following extensive
testing by ECAC, its EU Certified Type C LEDS OptoScreener software
upgrade for single-view X-ray machines has attained Standard 2
performance on Smiths 6040i host machines.
This means that thousands of machines deployed across European airports
can now be upgradeable to the highest level of Type C performance
without the need to be replaced, change the layout of the checkpoints,
or change electricity power consumption. Standard 2 is the highest
level of detection in the current regulation, and was recently
perceived as attainable only with multi-view or CT X-ray machines.
Eric Bergeron, President and CEO, Optosecurity, said "Optosecurity is extremely proud to once again push the limits of
engineering performance, especially in the current economic environment
where capital expenses need to be optimized, and regulatory
requirements are approaching. We offer airports the opportunity to
comply right now with the highest level of Type C performance, while
keeping their existing hardware infrastructure which is most of the
time already financially amortized. It's a business case that can't be
beat, and is future proof as our offering is compatible with our
eVelocityTM software suite that enables important operational efficiencies through
remote centralized screening and other value added features."
