Xtract One Technologies’ SmartGateway Achieves TSA and APL Validation, Reinforcing Patron Screening Solution’s Effectiveness

Rigorous Testing Done at Johns Hopkins University Affirms SmartGateway’s Performance and Reliability and Confirms Inclusion in TSA’s Approved Security Sensor Products

TORONTO, June 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xtract One Technologies (TSX: XTRA)(OTCQX: XTRAF)(FRA: 0PL) (“Xtract One”) or (the “Company”), a leading technology-driven threat detection and security solution that prioritizes the patron access experience by leveraging AI, today announced its SmartGateway patron screening solution was rigorously tested by the TSA for effectiveness and suitability, and as a result, will be included in the TSA’s 2023 approved product list. The extensive testing was completed by Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), the nation’s largest university-affiliated research center, on behalf of the TSA.

SmartGateway’s TSA and APL verification signifies the system’s adherence to documented specifications. The testing process encompassed a wide range of threat items and scenarios, underscoring the product’s reliability and performance across a broad set of applications. Rigorous third-party validation is a requirement of technology vendors for professional sports leagues including the NHL, NBA, MLB, and NFL.

The SmartGateway system unobtrusively scans patrons for guns, knives, and other prohibited items as they pass through the system. This solution was designed to secure large, ticketed venues to enable high throughput, using AI-powered sensors to detect threats without invading patrons’ sense of privacy and comfort.

“With the rigorous testing conducted at Johns Hopkins University, we have evaluated Xtract One’s documented and published specifications for their SmartGateway patron screening solution,” said Mona Espinosa, Chief Public Area Security & Infrastructure Protection (PASIP), Multimodal and Public Area Capabilities (MPAC), Requirements & Capabilities Analysis (RCA), Department of Homeland Security – TSA. “Our objective is to test and identify approved technology solutions which have been assessed to ensure their claims are supported by their technology’s functionality.”

“The integrity and extensiveness of this testing process and inclusion by the TSA in its approved products list highlight our continued objective to provide transparency across all areas of our business, ensuring our sales and marketing messaging aligns with our product capabilities,” said Peter Evans, CEO of Xtract One. “We are proud to have achieved this validation of the broad detection capabilities of our solution, and that customers can confidently select our solutions to deliver the expected outcomes for their organizations.”
