NEW YORK, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- An unidentified defense contractor is to market and distribute a terror prevention system by U.S. company Suspect Detection Systems Inc.

The system is called Cogito, a technology for law enforcement agencies that "detects the hidden 'hostile intent' of assailants -- before they commit their intended acts -- with a high degree of accuracy."

Suspect Detection Systems said Cogito can be used following a crime to identify criminals.

The New York company said the marketing and distribution arrangement is the result of a pilot program that involved the use of the Cogito multilayered terror prevention system at a large railway station in an unidentified country.

The defense contractor was key in initiating and coordinating the pilot project and entering into a formal distribution agreement with an accredited defense contractor is a requirement for signing a contract with state law enforcement agencies in the country, which was only described as a major world power.

"Penetrating commercial markets in this country depends on having a distribution agreement in place with a leading integrator of security systems," said Suspect Detection Systems Chief Executive Officer Gil Boosidan. "Suspect Detection Systems is now working together with such a contractor.

"This agreement is yet another milestone for Suspect Detection Systems toward the full implementation of Cogito technology at major terminals and national points of entry in one of the largest countries in the world."
