Cargo and baggage screening systems installed across America.

Alien Technology : 05 December, 2007  (Application Story)
Quatrotec explosive detections systems installed in 28 American airports as part of plan to improve screening processes and systems for cargo transport and passenger baggage handling.
Quatrotec, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alien Technology Corporation, is working on, or has completed projects at 28 US airports for security systems installation and integration, passenger checkpoint reconfiguration, and baggage and air cargo screening systems. Airport projects include John F Kennedy (JFK), San Francisco Airport (SFO) and Miami International Airport (MIA).

Quatrotec's major projects are with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and total over $12 million over the past 12 months. Quatrotec is the first in the US to design and build a 100% end-to-end explosive detection screening system for air cargo. TSA projects include:.

* Reduced Size Explosive Detection Screening (RSEDS) systems at 22 airports across the US.
* Lobby, ticket counter and screening area renovations.
* Security enhancements for baggage handling systems.
* Safety Hazard Mitigation projects.
Quatrotec solutions include baggage and cargo handling systems, explosive detection screening systems, advanced security and surveillance solutions, RFID solutions, transportation special systems, and project and construction management. Advanced security solutions designed by Quatrotec have been installed at airports around the world in order to help defend the global air transportation system against a wide range of terrorist threats.

"Cargo and luggage screening, Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems (PIDS), and other areas of Quatrotec focus will only continue to increase in importance as we work together to make transportation safer, and to meet the evolving requirements of homeland security," said Dominic Della Maggiora, President of the Quatrotec division of Alien Technology. "As we continue to roll out integrated baggage handling and screening solutions, RFID is becoming an integral part of the deployments, delivering vastly improved visibility and efficiency in luggage and cargo tracking."

Quatrotec baggage and cargo inspection systems integration services are certified under the Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act. When a technology is designated as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology, the seller of that technology is granted limited liability for claims arising out of the deployment of the qualified technology with respect to an "act of terrorism." As a provider of Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology, Quatrotec has obtained SAFETY Act liability protection. These liability protections extend to Quatrotec's cargo and baggage inspection system customers.
