Explosives Trace Portal Trialed At Orange County Airport
Syagen Technology Inc. conducted a trial deployment of its Guardian Explosives Trace Portal system, in collaboration with the John Wayne, Orange County Airport in California.
This month-long trial was conducted at an employee entrance of the Airport, where volunteer employees were screened to verify the system’s detection capability, validate its reliability and confirm public acceptance in airport operation. The Guardian Portal performed successfully and without interruption, confirming its readiness for market introduction.
The Guardian Portal is the first commercially available explosives detection system to incorporate mass spectrometry detection technology.
The wrap-up of this trial was attended by John Wayne Airport Director, Alan Murphy, Orange County Supervisor, 3rd District, Bill Campbell and his staff, and Orange County Airport Commissioner Bruce Junor. Alan Murphy, who arranged for the trial, was lauded for the effort by Syagen Technology and other OC officials.
“We are pleased to have been able to support these validation tests, to help facilitate the use of improved security screening technology in U.S. airports” Alan said. “John Wayne Airport has had a long history of playing a constructive role in such efforts, acting as a test-bed for new system trials."
“We are grateful and enthused with the strong local support for our technology and the airport management’s willingness to assist us in the test and deployment of this exciting product offering for suicide bomber detection and deterrence,” said Dr. Jack A. Syage, CEO of Syagen.
