Suspect Detection System's Cogito Interrogation System Used to Screen Airline Employees in Latin America
NEW YORK, July 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Suspect Detection Systems Inc., (OTCBB: SDSS), a developer of counter terror and crime prevention technology, announced today that several thousand aviation employees of a major American airline have been screened utilizing the proprietary Cogito hostile intent detection system in Latin America.
Aviation employees were interrogated using Cogito technology in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina as well as smaller countries in Central America. The screenings were conducted by a private company specializing in airport security.
The Cogito automated rapid interrogation system was used to determine whether any of the employees harbored criminal intent to aid in or commit an act of terror, or to similarly harm a plane or another of the airline's interests.
Security analysis demonstrates that airport employees may present a greater security risk than passengers, and therefore should be interrogated periodically to reassure that each individual's intentions toward the airline remain innocent.
"Cogito has become an integral part of the security chain for airlines operating flights from Latin America to the United States," said Gil Boosidan, CEO of Suspect Detection Systems Inc. "Our technology is effectively ensuring that airline employees pose no threats to the overall safety of numerous international flights and airport terminals."
"The successful implementation of this screening procedure provides us with opportunities for our proprietary Cogito threat detection system to be used to screen airport employees on multiple continents," Boosidan added.
