Syntech SOLUTION marks the first time artificial intelligence (AI) threat detection has been directly integrated into a commercially available X-ray inspection system.

Synapse Technology has established a partnership with X-ray manufacturer Astrophysics, Inc. Synapse Technology’s industry-leading artificial intelligence platform for automated gun and knife detection has been successfully integrated with Astrophysics’ XIS-6040 X-ray machine, resulting in the new product, Syntech SOLUTION, the first integrated AI X-ray system on the market.

The partnership and production of Syntech SOLUTION marks the first time artificial intelligence (AI) threat detection has been directly integrated into an X-ray inspection system. Syntech SOLUTION is best suited for the critical infrastructure market, including event security, schools, government buildings and other high-threat facilities.

Synapse Technology Founder and President Ian Cinnamon commented, “integrating artificial intelligence algorithms into security X-ray systems allows for an unprecedented level of detection. Astrophysics is an ideal partner for us, as our algorithm platform achieves peak performance when incorporated into their state-of-the-art imaging technology systems.”

Synapse Technology’s platform has received SAFETY Act DT&E Designation, the first artificial intelligence platform to ever receive this award. Utilizing the latest deep learning techniques, Synapse’s AI can automatically identify threats with more accuracy and a lower false positive rate than any other AI on the market.

Astrophysics and Synapse continue to partner to push the boundaries of X-ray detection technology. Through continued collaborations on product development, the two companies plan to bring automated detection to the broader security market.
