Artificial intelligence (AI) security and defense company Synapse Technology Corporation today announced Syntech ONE has been selected to be part of the most recent cohort of TSA's Innovative Task Force (ITF) Innovative Demonstrations for Enterprise Advancement (IDEA). Syntech ONE provides an artificial intelligence platform to help identify dangerous items. The software platform integrates on top of existing security infrastructure.
As part of the demonstration, Synapse will integrate technology with the two most common aviation X-ray machines, the Rapiscan 620DV and Smiths 6040aTiX. Synapse technology will demonstrate automated detection capabilities and cross-platform capabilities with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Las Vegas McCarran International Airport.
Madeline Zimmerman, Synapse Technology’s Government Programs Manager said, “We’re thrilled to be working with TSA to evaluate our artificial intelligence technology. The opportunity to work closely with ITF to demonstrate Syntech ONE’s capabilities allows us to further validate the products we have built.”
About Synapse Technology
Synapse Technology’s AI platform Syntech ONE® integrates with new and existing X-ray machines used at security checkpoints. Instead of security screeners relying solely on human cognitive abilities to identify threats like guns and knives, Syntech ONE augments and automates the detection of these dangerous items. Syntech ONE has already been widely deployed, having processed over 12,000,000 passenger bags at security checkpoints in four countries. 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.
