MSA Security’s new screening technology solution earns U.S. patent


MSA Security, a leader in high consequence threat protection and specialized training for corporate and government clients, has been issued a U.S. Patent on the latest advancement of its SmartTech™ technology invented and designed by company bomb detection technicians.

SmartTech™ is a state-of-the-art and proprietary high-speed technology solution used in combination with security X-ray machines deployed at facilities such as sports and entertainment venues, transportation hubs, corporate mailrooms, landmark checkpoints and loading docks. Certified by the Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act, SmartTech™ is unlike any other industry security screening technology, offering 24/7 availability of subject matter expertise that yields invaluable cost and operational efficiencies. Business disruption and unnecessary evacuations are prevented with the unmatched ability to instantly transmit images of suspicious or unusual items to MSA’s Emergency Operations Center for real-time inspection and analysis by experienced and FBI-certified bomb technicians.

The recently-issued patent pertains to the latest iteration of this innovative threat detection system which provides the unique ability to automatically route requests from screening operators across the globe to a hierarchy of varying subject matter expert groups based on the type of call, as well as pre-established protocols and parameters.

“The importance of screening for and detecting potential security threats continues to rise for government entities, organizations and corporations across the nation. Yet, that critical obligation must be balanced successfully against an operational need to minimize business disruption and financial loss associated with unnecessary evacuations,” explains MSA CEO Michael O’Neil. “Avoiding misidentification and misinterpretation of suspicious and unusual items requires real-time access to the nation’s best bomb detection experts.”

Established in 1987, MSA has offices in New York, Washington, DC, Massachusetts and California with more than 600 employees from elite and specialized backgrounds such as ESU, Bomb Squad, Counterterrorism, Federal and State Law Enforcement Agencies and Military working daily and deployed globally.
