Redwave Technology, a US homeland security company, has received a US$14M purchase order for its chemical analyzer solution from the United States Postal Inspection Service, which is responsible for protecting the United States Postal Service, securing the nation’s mail system and ensuring public trust in the mail.
Postal inspectors within the Inspection Service’s Dangerous Mail Investigations Program are specially trained to recognize the common characteristics of suspicious mail and are highly proficient in the use of state-of-the-art screening equipment.
After a competitive tender process in which the Service evaluated several chemical analyzers based on FTIR spectroscopy, the ThreatID from Redwave Technology was selected for nationwide deployment.
Jon Frattaroli, CEO of Redwave Technology stated, “It’s an honor that Redwave’s ThreatID was selected by the US Postal Inspection Service to help protect the nation’s mail and our country as a whole. The ThreatID was developed to identify thousands of different threats, and we believe that the ThreatID will significantly expand the US Postal Inspection Service’s ability to identify potentially harmful materials that may find their way into the mail system.”
