Implant Sciences Corp (OTCQB: IMSC) announced today new sales of its explosives trace detection systems in Nigeria for aviation security.
The supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense
markets said the latest shipment is to ASL Airlines Services in Lagos,
and the sale was made through A.C. Belgrave, an in-country distributor
for Implant Sciences' products.
ASL Airlines Services provides catering and hospitality services to
international airlines and airports in Nigeria and will use Implant's
QS-H150 explosives trace detectors to execute security search
initiatives such as screening food and beverage service carts.
The airline services company caters 700 flight handlings per month for airlines including British Airways, Delta, Lufthansa, Air France and others.
"We are penetrating international markets by working with local
distributors like A.C. Belgrave who know their market, have the
requisite relationships with decision makers, and are executing on
presenting the superiority of our products for designated applications,"
said Implant's president and CEO, Glenn D. Bolduc.
"We've been anticipating increased demand for our Quantum Sniffers in
Nigeria and throughout Africa. This sale affirms we are building
traction and we expect this trend to continue."
The company has developed proprietary technologies used in its
commercial explosive and narcotics trace detection systems, which ship
to a growing number of locations around the world.
Implant's QS-H150 portable explosives trace detector has received
Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology Designation, and the company's other
main product QS-B220 benchtop explosives and narcotics trace detector
has received a Developmental Testing & Evaluation (DT&E)
Designation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Last week, the Massachusetts-based company announced that an unnamed
Head of State in the Middle East has chosen its explosives trace
detectors for protection. It sold its Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 handheld
explosives trace detectors into the Middle East for VIP protection.
