Reveal Imaging Technologies, Inc. Receives $30 Million Order from TSA

BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reveal Imaging Technologies, Inc., a developer of industry-leading threat detection solutions, announced today that it has received a $30 million order from the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for its CT-80 DR, a next generation explosives detection system (EDS). These systems, in addition to associated options, are scheduled for delivery over the next 12 months.

This TSA order was funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. According to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) press releases, the Act provides a great opportunity to improve security and convenience at some of our nation’s airports as well as support President Obama’s plan to stimulate the economy. Furthermore, DHS was able to stretch its resources further than originally expected and deploy new security equipment to more airports across the country because it managed Recovery Act funds responsibly.

From a security perspective, the new equipment incorporates enhanced explosive detection technology to provide on-screen viewing capabilities for TSA officers conducting baggage screening. This will streamline airport procedures for passengers, making it easier to move through ticketing and boarding.

“By placing this order using stimulus funding, as well as other orders we’ve received from the U.S. Government this year, Reveal is able to enhance security and create much needed jobs for Americans,” said Michael Ellenbogen, president and CEO. “As a small business, we’ve been able to move quickly to put these funds to work.”
