AIT Purchases Defentect Radiation-Monitoring Products

NORWALK, CT /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Defentect announces a $126,000 purchase of its management, monitoring, and messaging software platform, DM3, and Gammatect radiation sensors by Itasca, Illinois-based AIT Worldwide Logistics (AIT), a global transportation and logistics provider. Since the announcement of the commercial release just two weeks ago, this order marks the second commercial sale of DM3, the homeland security industry's "first-to-market, fully integrated management, monitoring, and messaging software platform."

"TSA reports that 50 billion pounds of domestic cargo is transported annually by passenger and all-cargo air carriers alone, and the agency seeks to reduce the risks, vulnerabilities, and threats to the national homeland associated with it," said Frank O'Connor, President, Defentect. "TSA is also shifting the responsibility for scanning and inspection of all air freight to offsite locations managed by those doing the shipping as opposed to airport staff. Defentect offers a proven, economical solution to this vertical market, integral to the establishment of an overall national and global network of threat detection in an era of CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive) terrorism."

According to Bill Reichman, CIO, AIT Worldwide Logistics, "With three dozen nationwide locations and more than 300 global service centers, we're very aware of the need for comprehensive security strategies that increase our ability to protect people and property from the possibility of CBRNE terrorism borne out through multi-modal shipping. Defentect is key to both choke point detection and alerting."
