ORLANDO, Fla., 15 Dec. 2007. Brijot Imaging Systems Inc., maker of passive millimeter wave object detection and people screening technology, has received a contract for the supply, installation, and maintenance of passive millimeter wave imaging technology to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), a U.K. government department. In November 2007, the Prime Minister announced that the U.K. border agency will be the single primary checkpoint for both passport control and customs, and will administer screening measures on points of entry and exit on people and commodities.

Brijot responded to HMRC's request for a non-invasive technology that is capable of detecting objects that may be concealed beneath garments worn by passengers. The commodities include, but are not limited to, illicit drugs and cash. Combining Brijot technology to the existing presence of HMRC will strengthen security at U.K. ports and airports.

After multiple trials and testing installations, Brijot proved the technical ability to screen passengers for contraband traveling short or long haul flights with final destinations into the UK. The first deployment of the BIS-WDS GEN 2 systems, with both overt and covert installation capability, will be implemented Nationally at Ports and Airports and will include training, and five years maintenance and support.
