Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) has announced it has received a USD 2.8 million contract option under the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Accessible Property Screening System (APSS) program, the company said.
Under the option exercise, TSA acquired additional advanced DETECT 1000 screening systems, IDSS Auto-Diverter Systems as well as deployment and integration of the scanner with various Automated Screening Lanes.
The DETECT 1000 is currently operational at Boston´s Logan Airport, Houston´s Hobby Airport and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Several other US and international customers have also obtained IDSS systems. The additional systems purchased under this contract option are scheduled to be installed in Fiscal Year 2019 at six US domestic airports.
The award of this contract option compliments a number of development contracts IDSS has recently been awarded by other agencies and organizations. These contracts, totaling over USD 13 million, are for adding new capabilities to the DETECT 1000 to advance the automated detection of certain threat types, as well as to develop new solutions for other applications and government agencies.
Integrated Defense and Security Solutions is focused on delivering high performance, next generation security systems to replace the existing manual detection approach of X-ray based systems, currently in use at most airports worldwide. IDSS designed the DETECT 1000 to meet the operational requirements of today´s threats with the ability to expand its capabilities as threats continue to evolve.
