Thruvision, the leading provider of next-generation people-screening
solutions, today announced it has been awarded a Blanket Purchase
Agreement (BPA) by the U.S. Department of State. Thruvision will supply
its proven passive terahertz people-screening technology to the Bureau
of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
“Thruvision uniquely answers the need for safe, effective, respectful
screening solutions that perform in high throughput situations,” said
Kevin Gramer, Vice President for Thruvision, Americas. “Our technology
is already in use at international borders around the world and is
proven to help officers detect threats and identify prohibited items in
areas where it is deployed. We are pleased to have been chosen by INL as
they work to protect the traveling public from the effects of the
illicit trade in narcotics.”
This latest contract is one of several orders Thruvision has recently
