Aug. 16, 2010 at 12:18 PM

MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 16 (UPI) -- SAIC announced Monday it has completed the acquisition of Reveal Imaging Technologies Inc. of Massachusetts, a threat detection products and services company.

Reveal will join SAIC's Security and Transportation Technology Business Unit, part of SAIC's Infrastructure, Energy, Health and Product Solutions Group.

Details of the acquisition were not disclosed by Science Applications International Corp. or Reveal Imaging.

"As one of only a few companies with a product that has successfully completed TSA's certification process for automated EDS of checked baggage, Reveal's technology brings a new and valuable capability to SAIC's overall homeland security offering," said Joe Carver, head of SAIC's Infrastructure, Energy, Health and Product Solutions Group.

Reveal Imaging Technologies supports the U.S. Transportation Security Administration and others in the airport and transportation safety industries as a supplier of explosive detection systems and automated threat detection technologies, including inspection systems that check baggage for explosives, such as the CT-80 EDS.

SAIC said the acquisition will enhance its homeland security solutions portfolio, adding TSA-approved EDS baggage screening systems to SAIC's existing capabilities, which include its VACIS passenger and cargo inspection systems.
