GE Infrastructure Security, a leading manufacturer of explosives trace detection and identification equipment, today announced that 39 GE Itemiser
explosives trace detection systems were deployed prior to the recently concluded 2004 Olympic Games in Athens via a contract with the Greek Ministry of Public Order.
BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 1997-- The Federal Aviation Administration has chosen the ITEMISER explosives detector by Ion Track Instruments to provide enhanced security for passengers at airports across the country.
The ITEMISER detects the presence of an explosive in seconds and works by analyzing samples trapped on a paper filter.
In addition to being easy to use, portable, fast and accurate, the ITEMISER can instantly be switched to narcotics detection simply by pushing a button.
Based on newly patented ITMS technology, the ITEMISER sells for one-third the price of slower, older technology detectors that are in place at some airports overseas.
