NEW YORK, July 16, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Suspect Detection Systems Inc., (SDSS.OB and SVF.BE), announced today that the company's subsidiary Suspect Detection Systems Ltd., a developer of counter terror and crime prevention technology, has signed an exclusive marketing agreement with Minami Holdings in Japan.
As part of the agreement, Minami Holdings will invest efforts to market Suspect Detection System's proprietary Cogito rapid interrogation system. Furthermore, they will setup a dedicated Cogito marketing team that will receive training on the methodology and implementation of the technology by Suspect Detection Systems Ltd. in Israel.
Cogito is an automated interrogation system used to detect the hostile intent of suspected criminals and terrorists before they commit their intended acts. The system can also be utilized to aid in solving crimes that have already been committed.
The system is currently being utilized by law enforcement agencies in multiple countries including the United States, Mexico, India and Israel.
Minami Holdings (http://www.mainami-ks.co.jp/group.htm) is a Japanese trading company that has extensive commercial relationships with Japanese law enforcement authorities. Minami Holdings also has significant experience representing Israeli-based homeland security technologies in the Japanese market.
"We firmly believe in the capability of Cogito technology to aid in solving and preventing criminal or terrorist activity in Japan," stated Mr. Minami, CEO of Minami Holdings. "We are excited about the potential of this product to make a significant commercial impact and we are willing to invest monetary resources as necessary to ensure the success of Cogito within the homeland security market."
"We are pleased to widen Cogito's international presence with the initiation of marketing efforts in Japan together with Minami Holdings," stated Gil Boosidan, CEO of Suspect Detection Systems Inc. "We are impressed with the awareness of technology's role in homeland security and crime prevention displayed in Japan. We are confident that our products and methodology will further enhance the ability of Japanese law enforcement to prevent criminal and terrorist activity."
"Japan is an ideal market for Cogito technology," added Boosidan. Japanese law enforcement focuses many of its resources on prevention of crime and suspect apprehension (see Wikipedia's entry on criminal justice in Japan: http://tinyurl.com/crime-japan).
