Sago Showcases its Suicide Bomber Detection Unit

(Miami, Florida)  Sago Systems, Inc. today unveiled its ST 150 system specifically designed to detect suicide bombs carried on people.  The patented imager is radiation-free, portable, and produces high-quality imagery revealing the exact location of the weapon and its size.  Sago’s ST150 unit “sees” through clothing providing authorities instant information critical in helping to prevent terrorist attacks. 

“We have worked closely with our customers to create products that provide a solution while being easy to use for security personnel,” said Dr. John Lovberg, President and CEO, Sago Systems, Inc.   “We are aggressively rolling out our products. Our systems are completely safe, imaging only the objects blocking the body’s natural heat.
