Funding secured for explosive trace detection technology.

Syagen Technology : 04 April, 2008  (Company News)
US Department of Homeland Security pledges additional funds for the development of Guardian trace detection portal.
The DHS Science and Technology (S&T) office has provided a contract to Syagen Technology to implement specific enhancements to their Guardian Explosives Trace Portal (ETP). This work will further expand the Guardian's considerable explosives detection capabilities and provide additional operational features to improve the usability of the ETP for aviation security checkpoints and other security venues.

The Guardian ETP is designed for use at TSA aviation security checkpoints in order to detect and deter suicide bomber threats to the traveling public and US aviation assets. The Guardian allows for the non-invasive screening of airline passengers with new levels of accuracy and throughput speed and without the maintenance and operational issues associated with existing trace detection technologies. Dr Jack Syage, President of Syagen, commented, "We greatly appreciate this support from DHS, which further validates Mass Spectrometry as the next generation technology for use in trace detection of explosives and other chemical threats in the security field."
