QUEBEC CITY, June 9, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Optosecurity and Smiths
Detection have signed a long term Definitive Agreement towards
developing and distributing an advanced Checkpoint Enterprise Software
Solution that improves the overall performance and further cuts
operational costs of security checkpoints without compromising
regulatory compliance or security.
This is the second such arrangement between the two companies. The
first agreement, which has been in place for the past two (2) years,
is a cooperation agreement for the sale and distribution of
Optosecurity's Optoscreener solution, an automated detection software
that provides advanced detection algorithms that, when combined with
Smiths Detection checkpoint X-ray systems, enable
the automated detection of liquid explosives, bottles, weapons, and
other advanced risk management solutions.
"We are very pleased to be working with Smiths Detection, a global
leader in checkpoint technologies." said Eric Bergeron, President and
CEO of Optosecurity. Together the companies bring a business solution
to the industry that will positively transform the economics and
efficiency of delivering security screening without compromising
security. "Our combined technologies will enable checkpoint
efficiencies that increase passenger throughput and lower operating
costs, all while maintaining today's stringent security
requirements." added Mr. Bergeron.
