The distribution agreement will provide airports with Optosecurity'
advanced EU standard products on Smiths Detection's existing equipment
QUEBEC, June 27, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Optosecurity Inc., a leader in
threat detection technology, announced today that the company has
signed a worldwide distribution agreement with Smiths Detection, a
world leader in the practical application of advanced technologies for
threat and contraband detection, to provide airports with its advanced
EU standard LEDS products.
For Optosecurity, this agreement means that thousands of Smiths
Detection machines from 3 different lines (HI-SCAN 6040i, 6046si and
7555i) deployed across worldwide airports can now be upgraded to Type C
performance without the need to be replaced or change the layout of the
Type C systems can screen multiple liquid containers simultaneously when
displayed on a tray. The requirements are due to come into force after
the scheduled lifting of the current ban on liquids in hand luggage in
the EU in April 2013.
Eric Bergeron, President and CEO, Optosecurity, said "Today's successful products combine the best in class hardware
and software. We are very happy that Smiths Detection, a world leading
company for threat detection devices, has decided to integrate our
software to their market offering as optional feature. Optosecurity is
extremely proud to partner with Smiths Detection, especially in the
current economic environment where airports capital expenses need to be
optimized and regulatory requirements are approaching. Optosecurity
and Smiths Detection together offer airports the opportunity to comply
right now with Type C performance, while keeping their existing
applications. It's a business case that can't be beat."
