Implant Sciences to Supply Handheld Explosives Trace Detectors for Infrastructure Protection in Saudi Arabia

Implant Sciences Corporation, a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, today announced it has won a contract for 11 Quantum Sniffer™ QS-H150 handheld explosives trace detectors (ETDs) from a customer in Saudi Arabia. The units will be deployed for critical infrastructure protection in a multi-layered security environment.

"Our systems perform consistently in environments with wide temperature variations and in windswept and sandy conditions. The ability to perform in these settings is absolutely vital for ETD equipment in the Middle East," stated Implant Sciences' Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Dr. Darryl Jones. "Further, the low cost of maintenance and user-friendly interface make them the preferred choice for a growing number of customers worldwide."
