NEW YORK, July 17 (UPI) -- A security system to detect hostile intent has been used to screen thousands of U.S. airline employees in Latin America.

Suspect Detection Systems Inc., a developer of counter-terror and crime prevention technology, said its Cognito system was used by a private airport security company in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Argentina when questioning employees to determine hostile or illegal intent.

"Cogito has become an integral part of the security chain for airlines operating flights from Latin America to the United States," said Gil Boosidan, chief executive officer of Suspect Detection Systems Inc. "Our technology is effectively ensuring that airline employees pose no threats to the overall safety of numerous international flights and airport terminals.

"The successful implementation of this screening procedure provides us with opportunities for our proprietary Cogito threat detection system to be used to screen airport employees on multiple continents."
