Palto Alto, CA, October 15 - Qylur Intelligent Systems, an intelligent systems company based in Silicon Valley, today announced that it has entered into a Cooperative Research & Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Transportation Security Laboratory (TSL). The agreement will allow the TSL to evaluate the Qylatron™ Entry Experience Solution and could eventually lead to use of the Qylatron in a range of checkpoint environments.
The DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) establishes CRADAs as public-private partnerships designed to expeditiously mature and deploy security technologies. The TSL, part of DHS S&T, works with developers of contraband detection products so that systems might achieve qualification by DHS components.
The 18-month-long collaboration will begin with the testing and evaluation of the Qylatron at the TSL facilities, a federal laboratory within the DHS S&T located at the William J. Hughes Technical Center in the Atlantic International Airport in New Jersey. The Qylatron will be evaluated for its new capabilities, operational models and detection. Qylur's vision to provide the secure entry point of the future aligns with the DHS's vision of smart, integrated, connected and interoperable solutions that deliver the experience and performance expected at airports and ground sites in the future. TSL's evaluation will be the first step in in the CRADA collaboration between DHS S&T and Qylur.
"We are honored to embark on this milestone, collaborating with the Department of Homeland Security. Since the DHS and Qylur essentially share the same vision for secure entry points, we expect very positive outcomes resulting from this CRADA agreement," says Dr. Lisa Dolev, founder and CEO of Qylur.
