PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Artificial intelligence (AI) security and defense company Synapse Technology Corporation today announced it has expanded its sales and distribution reach across US federal customers via a partnership with distributor Federal Resources. Federal Resources will market, sell and support the company's Syntech ONE platform for applications including aviation security, border security, and critical infrastructure protection.
Federal Resources is a solutions provider serving the Department of Defense, various Federal Agencies and first responders in various markets to include the Critical Infrastructure market. "Federal Resources is excited to be partnering with Synapse Technology to bring their revolutionary AI technology to new and existing Federal Government users to expand their training and X-ray interpretation capabilities for an expanding threat base. Syntech ONE will be one of Federal Resources' flagship products within our Critical Infrastructure market. Adding this product to our portfolio will greatly enhance our ability to help the effectiveness of operator screening for threat detection. We're thrilled to be able to demonstrate the Syntech ONE at our offices in Arlington, VA," commented Matt Birnbaum, VP of Vertical Sales of Federal Resources.
Syntech ONE is an AI-powered software platform that dramatically improves the effectiveness of checkpoint X-ray scanners by automating detection of prohibited items. It retrofits onto both new and existing X-ray systems. Its growing threat detection library, which now includes ammunition in addition to gun components, sharps and knives, is the most extensive in the industry. Syntech ONE's performance is superior to other commercially-available systems. Syntech ONE is deployed in live screening environments for aviation and critical infrastructure protection and has processed over 17,000,000 passenger bags. The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recognizes the value of Syntech ONE and has granted Synapse Technology Corporation a SAFETY Act award for its technology platform. In addition, the US Airforce recently awarded Synapse a contract, which allows US DOD and other US government customers to easily acquire the advanced software.
"Federal Resources is the perfect partner for Synapse. As we further build our federal customer relationships, Federal Resources puts us in the perfect position to deploy Synapse Technology throughout the United States government. In conjunction with our recent investment from In-Q-Tel, we are in a prime position to rapidly modernize security checkpoints with artificial intelligence." commented Ian Cinnamon, President of Synapse Technology Corporation.
Synapse Technology recently entered into a strategic investment agreement with In-Q-Tel (IQT), the not-for-profit strategic investor that accelerates the development and delivery of cutting-edge technologies to U.S. intelligence and defense agencies. "Synapse's technology is disrupting the industry by using artificial intelligence to automatically identify threats at our country's air, sea, and land ports of entry," said A.J. Bertone, Partner, Investments, IQT.
