Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) acquired Reveal Imaging Technologies, a threat-detection products and services company. Reveal is headquartered in Bedford, Massachusetts.
Reveal supports the efforts of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and other customers in the airport and transportation safety industries as a supplier of Explosive Detection System (EDS) and automated threat detection technologies, including inspection systems that check baggage for explosives. The acquisition will enhance SAIC's homeland security solutions portfolio, adding TSA approved EDS baggage screening systems to SAIC's existing capabilities which include its passenger and cargo inspection systems. This enhanced offering will enable SAIC to better serve customers including customs agencies, the military and other security organizations worldwide.
Reveal will join SAIC's Security and Transportation Technology Business Unit, part of SAIC's Infrastructure, Energy, Health and Product Solutions Group led by Joe Craver.
"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. This acquisition represents new opportunities for growth, and will enable us to better serve customers," Craver said.
"We believe SAIC's acquisition of Reveal will benefit our customers and our employees," said Mike Ellenbogen, CEO and President of Reveal. "SAIC's technical and organizational strengths and resources position us to help address the most demanding security inspection and detection challenges by providing new products and services that we wouldn't be able to achieve as a stand-alone company."
