WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 29, 2013) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, announced today the Company will be an exhibitor at AirCargo 2013, a leading tradeshow and conference for the domestic U.S. air cargo industry. Implant Sciences will be exhibiting its Quantum Sniffer™ QS-B220 desktop explosives and drugs trace detector, which received TSA approval for use in air cargo security on January 15, in booth #91.
AirCargo attracts nearly 1,000 industry representatives from the express delivery industries, airlines, air forwarding companies, air freight and expedited trucking companies, logistics providers, courier companies, airport authorities, and the suppliers to these industries. This year's conference will take place between March 10-12 in Las Vegas.
"The timing of this important trade show is very opportune for us. Having just received TSA approval for our QS-B220 for use in air cargo screening, we are in a position to exhibit and take orders from air cargo customers shipping to or from the U.S.," stated Implant Sciences' President and CEO, Glenn D. Bolduc. "Although historically a majority of our sales have been to customers outside of the U.S., with TSA approval, we believe that we will significantly increase sales domestically."
