NEW YORK, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- A distribution agreement for Suspect Detection Systems Inc.'s counter-terror and crime detection technologies has been signed in Latin America.

Suspect Detection Systems, based in New York, did not disclose the identity of the company with which it signed the deal, but said it "is the largest defense technology contractor in a Latin American country" that is receiving its initial purchase order.

"We are extremely pleased with our new distribution agreement with the major defense contractor, which we believe will lead to significant additional revenues," said Gil Boosidan, chief executive officer of Suspect Detection Systems.

"We continue to increase our presence in Central and South America. Our customers throughout Latin America have expressed immense satisfaction with our technology and its proven ability in enhancing their efforts to prevent terrorism and criminal activity."

Cogito, the company's proprietary suspect detection system, is already being used by law enforcement agencies and private sector companies in the region. The technology uses a combination of audiovisual elements, interrogation methods, and advanced algorithms to analyze a person's parasympathetic nervous system to detect hidden "hostile intent."
