Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCBB:IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, has been issued a coveted “Designation” for its Quantum Sniffer™ technology under the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology Act of 2002 (the SAFETY Act) from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The designation applies to the company’s QS-H100 and QS-H150 Portable Explosives Detectors.
The purpose of the SAFETY Act is to ensure that the threat of liability does not deter manufacturers of anti-terrorism technologies from developing and commercializing new products that could significantly reduce the risks or effects of terrorist events.
Glenn D. Bolduc, CEO, commented, “Implant Sciences is extremely proud of this significant achievement and the formal recognition of our Quantum Sniffer as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology.” Mr. Bolduc continued, “The Company would like to extend its thanks to the Secure Strategy Group, whose advisory services were instrumental in this process.”
"We are very pleased to receive the Department of Homeland Security’s SAFETY Act Designation,” said Todd Silvestri, Vice President of Technology. “It is very gratifying in that the approval process not only considered the efficacy of the Quantum Sniffers explosives detection technologies, it also stressed the quality and reliability of the product."For more information about the SAFETY Act, and the Designation of the Quantum Sniffer, please see www.safetyact.gov.
