The DETECTTM 1000 systems will enhance checkpoint efficiencies while improving security and enabling a better passenger experience. The DETECTTM 1000’s superior image quality and intuitive user interface provides the most advanced platform with which to identify smaller and more advanced threats while improving operator efficiency. The DETECT™ 1000 integrated with the BREVA will enhance the passenger experience and improve capacity at Craiova Airport while enhancing the security and safety at the checkpoint.

The development and innovation of the TRS BREVA continues to provide improvements in the process. The BREVA system was developed with the main objective of increasing throughput and automating the processing of cabin baggage at checkpoints. The tight integration of the DETECT™ 1000 CT system and TRS BREVA improves passenger throughput while maintaining advanced international security standards.

The system is equipped with a complex and advanced data collection package such as RFID readers and cameras to ensure the effective processing of all passengers. "As restrictions from the pandemic continue to lift and air travel returns, we anticipate the DETECTTM 1000 integrated with the BREVA will assist Craiova International Airport by providing increased checkpoint capacity and operator efficiencies", said Jeffrey Hamel, President and CEO at IDSS.

Integrated Defense and Security Solutions is a small business which develops and manufactures security technology systems based in Boxborough, Massachusetts. The company was founded in 2012 by a team of security experts with the goal of developing security solutions to address current and future threats to aviation. Our first product, the DETECT™ 1000 has received certification by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) for explosives detection in carry-on baggage. While designed initially for explosives detection, the DETECT™ 1000 superior image quality and x-ray information has been leveraged for the Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) of mail and parcels as well as cargo of all sizes. In December 2019, IDSS was recognized as the grand prize winner in the DHS Opioid Detection Challenge (www.opioiddetectionchallenge.com) for its algorithm development and rapid detection capability for identifying illicit opioids in international mail and packaging.
