Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) has announced that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has awarded a contract option, valued at approximately USD $2.8 million (approx. £2.1 million) under the TSA Accessible Property Screening System (APSS) programme. Under the option exercise, TSA acquired additional advanced DETECT™ 1000 screening systems, IDSS Auto-Diverter Systems as well as deployment and integration of the scanner with various automated screening lanes.
The DETECT™ 1000 is currently operational at Boston’s Logan Airport, Houston’s Hobby Airport and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Several other U.S. and international customers have also obtained IDSS systems. The additional systems purchased under this contract option are scheduled to be installed in Fiscal Year 2019 at six U.S. domestic airports.
The award of this contract option compliments a number of development contracts IDSS has recently been awarded by other agencies and organisations. These contracts, totalling over $13 million (approx. £9.8 million), are to add new capabilities to the DETECT™ 1000 to advance the automated detection of certain threat types, and develop new solutions for other applications and government agencies.
