DHS S&T/TSL's core mission is to enhance homeland security, including the research, development and validation of solutions to detect and mitigate the threat of improvised explosive devices (IEDs). DHS S&T establishes CRADAs as public-private partnerships designed to expeditiously mature and deploy security technologies and to prepare products to achieve Transportation Security Administration (TSA) certification/qualification. TSA certified products may be used at ports of entry across the U.S., including airports.
Implant Sciences' Vice President of Technology, Todd Silvestri stated, "The insight of the professionals at TSL will be invaluable in preparing the QS-B220 to meet TSA's expectations. TSL brings extensive experience and expertise to the table which will help us build a better product."
"We are proud to be able to work with S&T to optimize our technology. This is a great example of a private-public partnership that helps save money for taxpayers while improving security in the United States," concluded Implant Sciences' President and CEO, Glenn D. Bolduc.
