Reveal Imaging Acquires Xytrans Technology
Reveal Imaging Technologies, Inc., a developer of industry-leading threat detection systems, announced today the completion of its acquisition of certain technology of Xytrans, Inc. a developer of millimeter wave (MMW) sensor technology for use in security, concealed weapons detection and personnel screening applications. Xytrans' technology includes patented and patent pending passive and active millimeter wave imaging technologies, patented assembly methods for manufacturing monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), prototype and product designs.
"The adoption of automated explosive detection systems (EDS), such as the Reveal CT-80 platform, has enabled checked baggage to be quickly and thoroughly screened, with low false alarm rates" said Michael Ellenbogen, President and CEO of Reveal Imaging Technologies. "Checkpoint inspection, where passengers and their carry-on items are screened, can benefit from similar capabilities. MMW technology is one of several approaches we are pursuing for a complete Reveal checkpoint inspection solution."
Headquartered in Bedford, MA, privately held Reveal Imaging Technologies, Inc. provides industry-leading explosives detection innovations designed to integrate effectively with real-world operations in airports and facilities. Reveal offers a variety of TSA-certified screening solutions for airport checked and cabin baggage as well as parcel screening for facilities and public events.
