NEW YORK, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- U.S. company Suspect Detection Systems Inc. has been asked by law enforcement officials in India to tender a bid for its Cogito automated interrogation system.

Cogito, a fully automated system that doesn't require operator control, detects people that may have hostile intent by emulating an investigator's Modus Operandi. It does so by incorporating artificial intelligence techniques and algorithms in a single unit that includes biometric and documentation verification features.

Suspect Detection Systems said the officials requested a bid for multiple Cogito units but additional details weren't disclosed.

The identity of the potential customer was also not given but Suspect Detection Systems said the request apparently came as a result of successful use of the system by other law enforcement entities (state or district) in the country.

"Law enforcement agents in India recognize that Cogito technology is an important tool for solving and preventing crime or terror," said Gil Boosidan, chief executive officer of Suspect Detection Systems Inc.

"We are pleased that our technology continues to be integrated in one of the world's fastest growing security markets.

"As the only company able to provide (a) proven solution, as our proprietary Cogito counter-terror technology has repeatedly demonstrated, we are confident that the tender will be quickly approved and awarded to Suspect Detection Systems."
