IDO Security a provider of detection solutions for the homeland security market including the MagShoe™ high speed shoes-on portable footwear metal weapons detection system, recently announced that the MagShoe Pilot Program at Israel's Ben-Gurion International Airport has been completed successfully.
"The one month pilot program at Terminal 3, Israel's main international terminal, was conducted and managed by the Security Technologies Division of the Israel Airport Authority -- IDO personnel were present only as observers. During the pilot program the MagShoe was tested both at passenger security screening checkpoints and at one of the Airport's employee and provider checkpoints. The pilot test program concluded with the MagShoe having successfully demonstrated its various capabilities," said Jorge Wolf, Chief Executive Officer of IDO Security Ltd.
"We are proud to have had our technology given the opportunity to be tested at Israel's Ben-Gurion International Airport, which is regarded as one of the world's most secure airports," said IDO Ltd. COO Henri Shabbat. "With Israeli airport security systems, procedures and technology standards regarded by many experts as among the most stringent in the world, we believe that the results of this pilot program will add to the growing validation of the MagShoe for airport security officials in many additional countries."
