Sense Holdings and Interrelated Technologies Execute Agreement to Develop Security Systems Based on Proprietary MEMS Technology; Companies to Target Homeland and Port Security with Advanced Technology Solutions
The joint research and development agreement creates a formal platform for the two companies to work together as ITI completes the development of its unique system, in combination with the Sense Holdings proprietary MEMS technology. This product will be designed to offer an extraordinary detection system for fire, explosives, WMDs and contraband materials.
“This alliance with ITI will enable our companies to offer multiple products using these cost efficient technologies which will address many areas of domestic and international concern for public safety”
Sense and ITI believe that collectively these technologies will increase their global business presence, and allow them to establish a unique safety and security paradigm for the 21st century. Sense is developing a broad line of explosive detection devices and other security systems based on proprietary Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology.
"ITI's relationship with Sense allows us the opportunity to provide a valuable safety product solution for all homeland security needs," says Jerome Dumas, Chairman and CEO of ITI. "Both Sense and ITI have strong and productive working arrangements with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We are excited to be working with Sense to create new advanced technology products to solve security issues that affect all people all over the world."
"This alliance with ITI will enable our companies to offer multiple products using these cost efficient technologies which will address many areas of domestic and international concern for public safety," said Dore Perler, CEO of Sense Holdings, Inc.
Sense is developing its line of advanced detection products under a research and development partnership with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, TN, which is operated by the US Department of Energy. Sense is the sole commercialization partner with exclusive rights for the manufacture, sale and distribution of MEMS-based handheld devices for homeland security product applications and markets.
As previously announced Sense also has expanded licensing and patent agreements with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and now owns all worldwide exclusive rights to the sale, manufacturing, and distribution of this major new platform technology and all of its explosives, chemical and narcotic applications. In addition, Sense has retained the right to acquire additional licensing rights for all biological sensing applications in the future.
