Brijot Imaging Systems, which last year unveiled its passive millimeter wave full-motion video technology, says its system is undergoing laboratory testing for possible inclusion in a rail security project for the Department of Homeland Security.

If selected, the pilot would give Brijot its first opportunity to showcase its BIS-WDS Prime real-time concealed weapons detection camera for the federal government in an operational setting.

The testing is being done by Sandia National Laboratories, part of the Department of Energy's network of research and development centers. Brijot could not disclose where the rail security pilot would take place.

The company views the testing as a chance to get government validation of its technology.

"Sandia's testing provides an incredible opportunity to independently corroborate our system capabilities, which uses millimeter wave sensors to locate objects such as suicide bombs made of plastics, ceramics and composites-- not just metal--that transportation operators cannot find today without random stops and searches," says Brian Andrew, president and CEO of Brijot.
