SAIC to Buy Reveal Imaging Technologies, Joe Craver Comments

SAIC (NYSE: SAI) will acquire Massachusetts-based Reveal Imaging Technologies, a firm specializing in threat-detection products and services.

According to the firm, “Reveal was founded in 2002 in direct response to the U.S. government’s post-9/11 mandate for aviation security screening. Reveal initially focused on developing technology to accurately and efficiently screen checked baggage at airports, and today continues to support the efforts of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) as a supplier of Explosive Detection System (EDS) and automated threat detection technologies. In 2004, the TSA certified the company’s Reveal CT-80 EDS to automatically inspect checked baggage for explosives. Reveal is one of only a few companies that has a product that has successfully completed TSA’s certification process for automated EDS of checked baggage.”

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.

“We are pleased with the opportunity to welcome Reveal to SAIC’s homeland security solutions team, ” Craver said. “This acquisition will provide us with technology to help build on our existing foundation of solution-focused products.”
