LONDON (Alliance News) – Thruvision Group PLC said Friday it has been won a US Transportation Security Administration contract to develop a new screening technology for use in airports.

Shares in Thruvision were up 9.3% at 26.50 pence on Friday afternoon.

The TSA handles travel security in the US and has awarded a concept of operations development contract to Thruvision. Under this contract, Thruvision will develop a new range of people-screening technology for use at airport security checkpoints.

Thruvision’s scanners use passive terahertz imaging technology to prevent people from concealing items.

“Thruvision has worked extensively with TSA already to successfully test and vet our technology for use in surface transportation security environments,” said Thruvision Americas Vice President Kevin Gramer.

“We believe Thruvision’s technology has the potential to complement existing TSA aviation checkpoint screening processes through high throughput screening of travellers,” he added.

The value and length of this contract have not been disclosed.
