Implant Sciences Corporation , a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, announced today the Company will host explosives trace detection briefings and demonstrations of its TSA-approved QS-B220 desktop explosives trace detector at the Miami International Airport on Thursday, September 19, 2013, in the Miami-International Airport West Cargo Area Conference Room - Cargo Building 702, Suite #205.
The event is open to individuals involved in air cargo security. Please contact [email protected] for information on how to attend.
"Explosive Trace Detection (ETD) is arguably the best air cargo security technology available today. Important changes are coming when the TSA's grandfathered list of legacy ETD systems lose their approved status on January 1, 2014. This event will provide important information for air cargo facilities looking to replace expiring systems or expand screening operations," stated Implant Sciences' Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Dr. Darryl Jones.
About the QS-B220 Desktop Explosives Trace Detector
The QS-B220 uses Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) to rapidly detect and identify trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial, and homemade explosives. With significantly lower maintenance requirements than competing systems, the QS-B220 can be deployed for a much lower total cost of ownership than other approved products. Featuring a radioactive material-free design, push-button maintenance and diagnostics, and a patented inCal™ internal automatic calibration system, the QS-B220 brings new levels of performance and convenience to desktop trace detection users with unsurpassed ease of use.
