The OptoScreener threat detection capabilities, both for weapons and dangerous liquids, are unique and address yet unsolved critical security issues.”

Mr. Eric Bergeron, President and CEO of Optosecurity, is excited about having this new client from the nuclear industry. “We are very proud and thankful to Bruce Power for their trust and initiative within the nuclear industry,” he said. “The endorsement of Optosecurity’s product by such an important member of the nuclear industry, a high profile and highly secure environment, is a great indication of the common concern within the security community about dangerous liquids. We look forward to working closely with Bruce Power to ensure our system contributes to a higher level of security. We are confident that our system will soon become a standard in checkpoint threat detection in the nuclear industry as well as in other markets, including the aviation security industry.”
