Artificial intelligence (AI) security and defense company Synapse Technology today announced that it continues to expand its Syntech ONE® 200 automated threat detection platform. Syntech ONE delivers the highest detection rates in the industry, including the newly released ammunition detection, on both aviation and critical infrastructure X-ray machines.


"Synapse invented AI threat detection and our technology is available for immediate use on thousands of checkpoint X-Ray systems worldwide including nearly every airport checkpoint in the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America." explained Synapse CEO, Peter Kant. "Synapse customers are benefiting from our patented and expanding AI detection capabilities and are able to use their current X-Ray system."

Syntech ONE is an AI-powered software platform that dramatically improves the effectiveness of checkpoint x-ray scanners by automating detection of prohibited items. Its growing threat detection library, which now includes ammunition in addition to gun components, sharps and knives, is the most extensive in the industry. With false alarm rates in the field of 0.3% on sharps and 0.01% on firearms, and detection rates above 99% for firearms, Syntech ONE's performance is superior to other commercially-available systems.

Syntech ONE offers customers a truly open integration platform that supports full backward compatibility with any X-ray manufacturer and model, including Smiths Detection, Rapiscan and Astrophysics standard checkpoint x-ray scanners. Syntech ONE is already widely deployed and has processed over 10,000,000 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.

"With the addition of ammunition detection and best-in-class support for a majority of worldwide checkpoint systems, Syntech ONE again demonstrates its industry leadership," commented Simanta Gautam, Synapse Technology's Chief Technology Officer. Mr. Gautam continued: "Many government and private sector companies use multiple x-ray vendors, and only Syntech has the ability to support all of them, seamlessly and with minimal integration cost."

"Take any of these existing X-ray machines, plug this system in, and you have Artificial Intelligence doing the screening" said Synapse President Ian Cinnamon. "It's as easy as that. An operator working with an AI is the fastest and most secure operation currently available."

"With Syntech ONE, an operator without specialized training is able to screen more effectively than even a well-trained screener. This allows schools and other cost-constrained environments to deploy X-ray machines more easily," added Chief Operating Officer Bruno Faviero. "One operator can screen multiple machines, this was not possible before."
