A Wilmington supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets announced Tuesday they would be continuing business with a customer who uses their technology at Los Angeles International Airport.

Implant Sciences of Wilmington reported they had received a follow-on order for their QS-B220 desktop explosives trace detector (ETD) from Mercury Air Cargo, an international and domestic airline cargo handling company.

Mercury Air Cargo will use the QS-B220 at their air cargo screening facility at Los Angeles International Airport, one of the highest volume airports in the world.

"Companies look to us because of our strong reputation and experience in cargo handling and screening.  As such, having an ETD system that provides a low-cost, easy-to-use solution is of the utmost importance," said Darrin Naughton, ICSF Cargo Security Manager at Mercury Air Cargo. "We are pleased to work with Implant Sciences, and have been impressed by their training, service, and support team."

The follow-on order announced Tuesday comes after Mercury Air Cargo purchased and deployed the QS-B220 in June.

Mercury Air Cargo is a TSA Certified Cargo Screening Facility, and is required to use TSA qualified systems when screening air cargo packages for explosives before they are loaded onto airplanes.

"Having a non-radioactive source was another important factor for Mercury and our QS-B220 is the only TSA-qualified ETD that offers this benefit." siad Implant Sciences' VP of Sales and Marketing, Darryl Jones. "We look forward to a long-term relationship with Mercury Air Cargo."

Implant Sciences is based at 600 Research Drive in Wilmington.
