“This is the same substance used by Richard Reid, the ‘shoe bomber’ in 2001 on a flight to Miami. In August, Al-Qaida attempted to assassinate Saudi Arabia’s counter terrorism chief, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef with a PETN-based explosive device,” stated Mr. Richard Sowden, Director of Technology for CSL, LLC, GateKeeper USA’s strategic partner.
The technology incorporated within GateKeeper USA’s CAMS device is able to detect PETN in minute’ trace quantities, utilizing a much smaller footprint and offering superior detection capabilities to the failed “puffer machines” and security swabs used to look for trace amounts of certain substances. The CAMS technology is currently being marketed by GateKeeper USA in the maritime security sector to detect this and other dangerous and illegal substances that may be aimed at hurting U.S. and International concerns worldwide.
