WILMINGTON, MA /Marketwire/ -- Implant Sciences Corp., a high-technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, announced that it has won a contract for four Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 handheld explosives trace detectors from a new customer in Germany. The sale was made through Implant Sciences' German distributor, D-TeC System Consulting GmbH, of Hamburg. The units will be used to inspect air cargo shipments.
"On March 25, 2013, new regulations come into effect in Germany that have the potential to significantly increase the volume of air cargo screened," noted Detlef Dau, General Manager of D-TeC Systems Consulting.
