OSI Systems Announces Large Cargo Orders in Excess of $7 Million
Both Dubai and the Korean Office of Customs are existing customers of OSI Systems' security group. Delivery of the two orders is scheduled for completion by the end of fiscal 2005.
"Our large cargo systems continue to gain traction in international markets. By offering a comprehensive selection of technology solutions for cargo inspection, we are able to meet the developing needs of customers who have requirements ranging from security to manifest verification," stated Ajay Mehra, President of OSI Systems Security Group.
OSI Systems has the broadest technology platform in the cargo security systems industry. The company offers x-ray, gamma ray, and neutron-based material specific technologies as well as hybrid systems that optimize performance, cost, and ability to meet customers' unique applications. The company's fixed, mobile, and relocateable large cargo inspection systems are currently deployed at various border crossings and ports. The company's ARACOR Eagle high-performance mobile inspection system is designed to meet homeland security goals of protecting shipping ports from terrorism.
