WILMINGTON, MA – Implant Sciences Corporation, a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, today announced it has won a competitive bid for 14 of its next-generation explosives trace detectors (ETDs) including its QS-H150 handheld unit and QS-B220 system to Minsk National Airport in Belarus. Minsk National Airport, the largest airport in Belarus, can accommodate nearly 3.6 million passengers a year. The airport is currently expanding its infrastructure and security systems ahead of the 2014 Men’s World Ice Hockey Championships, which Belarus will host from May 9th through 25th 2014.
“We are proud to announce that Minsk National Airport will be added to our growing list of international airports that are implementing our legacy and next-generation ETDs. The QS-H150 and QS-B220 were selected by our new customer over a larger competitors’ ETDs due to our systems’ superior performance, lower total cost of ownership, and non-radioactive source,” stated Implant Sciences’ General Manager of Russia and CIS Countries, Ms. Natalya Hall.
Minsk National Airport’s Director General Deputy for Aviation Security and Regime, Alexander Apet commented, “In evaluating IMSC equipment, we saw the clear differences and advantages that the QS-B220 and QS-H150 offered over the competing systems we were using at the time. As we expand our airport’s facilities and security infrastructure, it is critical that we implement systems that use the latest technological advancements. Implant Sciences’ ETDs met and exceeded those expectations and requirements.”
