NEW YORK, January 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Suspect Detection Systems Inc., (SDSS.OB), a leading developer of counter terror and crime prevention technology, deploys technology proven to prevent terror and criminal activity onboard commercial airliners and other sensitive targets.

Cogito rapid interrogation technology detects the hidden intent of terrorists and criminals to commit harmful acts. The proprietary system is able to expose the guilty knowledge of a potential suspect during a short automated interrogation that lasts approximately five minutes.

The system is proven to be over 95 percent effective.

Cogito is already being utilized by federal and regional agencies in several countries around the world to prevent terror incidents and solve crimes that have already occurred. Cogito is being used extensively in India and Mexico, two countries with dynamic crime and terror threats. The system was recently purchased by a federal homeland security agency for deployment along a major national border in Southeast Asia.

Cogito was developed with funding from the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The system was extensively and successfully tested by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the Knoxville Tennessee Airport, where the system exposed numerous undercover agents attempting to smuggle explosive materials onboard domestic aircrafts.

"The Cogito rapid interrogation system was designed following the 9/11 attacks," said Shabtai Shoval, CEO of Suspect Detection Systems Ltd. "Those attacks proved that the most harmful weapon a terrorist possesses is their intent to commit a destructive act. Cogito is able to expose the hostile intent of a potential terrorist with a 95 percent degree of accuracy."

"A simple five minute automated interrogation during the Visa application process, or at the airport security checkpoint would have most assuredly exposed the evil intention of Christmas terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab before he ever boarded," added Shoval.
