Passport Systems Inc.: Passport Systems Inc Featured in Boston Globe Article on New Radiation Detection Technology

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., Feb. 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Passport Systems
Inc, one of the world's leading developers of radiation detection technology,
is featured in a Boston Globe article discussing the company's cutting-edge
technology that will scan cargo arriving at the Port of Boston and is
available to make other seaports around the world safer.

The recent Globe story can be viewed at http://bit.ly/1me2qtN.

"Our mission at Passport, and our responsibility as engineers and scientists,
is to develop advanced products that will improve public safety," said Dr.
Robert Ledoux, President, CEO and Director of Passport Systems Inc . "We take
that responsibility very seriously."

As the Globe article notes, Passport Systems has developed two
state-of-the-art radiation detection systems that are helping to keep the
world safer from Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive
(CBRNE) threats.

The SmartShield(TM) Networked Radiation Detection System is a handheld
networked radiation detection system that can detect and prevent radiological
threats. It provides seamless integration of individual detectors into a
coordinated network, while its advanced algorithms use the information
provided by the network to perform improved radiation detection,
localization, identification, and continuous mapping of the background. The
SmartShield system provides significant advances that help law enforcement
improve their detection and response capabilities at locations such as
airports, concerts, or any large outdoor gathering.

In a few months, Passport Systems will also unveil a pioneering,
non-intrusive, cargo inspection facility at the Port of Boston. The
SmartScan 3D(TM) Automated Cargo Inspection System will enhance the
efficiency and effectiveness of cargo inspections. The system integrates
proprietary detection technologies with conventional high-resolution imaging
and intelligent passive radiation detection to automatically clear or detect
threat materials in minutes or even seconds.

This state of the art cargo scanner can automatically detect nuclear material,
explosives, drugs, and other contraband, supplying authorities with
three-dimensional images capable of displaying the location of contraband.
