(Wilmington, Mass., January 19, 2010) -- Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCBB:IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security markets, today announced a contract totaling approximately $6 million for its Quantum Sniffer(TM) QS-H150 Portable Explosives Detectors and associated support. The contract was awarded by the Government of India, for use by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Force Protection and Public Safety applications throughout the country.
Glenn D. Bolduc, President and CEO of Implant Sciences, commented, "This contract award is significant in many ways. Most importantly, it allows Implant Sciences to continue to contribute to worldwide anti-terrorism efforts. We are also very pleased that this award represents the largest single order in the Company's history." The Company expects to ship the entire order within the current fiscal year ending June 30, 2010.
Jeff Tehan, Implant Sciences' Vice President of Marketing and Sales, added, "Implant Sciences is the sole contract awardee after an arduous competitive evaluation that started over 24 months ago. We are extremely proud of this, the validation it represents, and the follow-on opportunities it creates. To best support this contract and others in India and South Asia, Implant Sciences has partnered with LNG Security Services of Delhi, who will provide warranty and post-warranty technical support, as well as operator and administrator training."
The QS-H150 offers compelling technical, operational, and competitive advantages. Among the most significant are non-contact sample collection, non-radioactive ionization, simultaneous detection and identification of explosives particulate and vapor, continuous self-calibration, and ultra-fast clear down (cycle time). The substance library of the QS-H150 is the broadest in the industry and includes not only standard military and commercial explosives, but also a wide variety of improvised and homemade explosives (IEDs and HMEs). The library is also easily expanded as new threats emerge. These advantages offer an extremely versatile solution, and can be rapidly deployed to greatly increase the number of items screened, effectively becoming a force multiplier.
