United Arab Emirates Orders 11 Units of Implant's Recently Launched QS-H150 Handheld Explosives Detector for Protection of Government Installations
(WAKEFIELD, Mass. Nov. 2, 2006) -- Implant Sciences Corporation (AMEX: IMX) a developer and manufacturer of products for national security, medicine and industry, today announced that it received an order for eleven (11) units of the Company's QS-H150 handheld explosives detection device to be shipped to the United Arab Emirates. The Company recently launched its lighter and more compact QS-H150 handheld explosives detection device, with improved features that should result in greater ease of use and maintenance, at the ASIS International 52nd Annual Seminar & Exhibits, the world's most comprehensive educational and networking event in the security industry, and the at AVSEC World 2006, the premier aviation security event. It is anticipated that these eleven (11) units will be used in various locations within the United Arab Emirates for protection of government installations, however, for reasons of confidentiality and security, no further details as to the use and locations of the devices is permitted.
Joanne Arsenault, Implant Sciences' VP of Sales & Marketing-Security Division, stated, "We are pleased that the first installation of our new QS-H150 explosives detection device will be in such a highly visible location as the United Arab Emirates. We believe our campaign to introduce our new QS-H150, which is lighter, more compact and designed with features to improve the ease of use, maintenance and manufacturability of the device, was well-received and has provided us the exposure necessary to grow sales over the next several quarters. We currently have over 240 units of our first generation H100 handheld explosives detection device installed throughout the world. It is our expectation that this initial order could lead to future orders in the Middle East."
Dr. Anthony J. Armini, PhD., CEO of Implant Sciences, further commented, "We have been working on this order for the United Arab Emirates for some time now. We believe that this is an important order that should provide commercial exposure for our new version of the handheld explosives detector. We continue working towards the domestic certification of our newly configured desktop unit that provides the breadth of analytical features required of a stationary detection device and the flexibility of a portable device. We also continue our progress in the development of both a passenger portal and the construction of a vehicle inspection device, both efforts, we believe, could provide the Company with important future commercial products."
