COVINGTON, Ky. , Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Valley Forge Composite Technologies, Inc., (OTCBB: VLYF), manufacturer and marketer of breakthrough cargo/baggage and people screening technologies and aerospace products, reported that a Major Middle Eastern Country has signed a master agreement with the company, permitting its government agencies to purchase the company's Odin and Thor-LVX screening systems.
Under the terms of the master agreement, each relevant agency is permitted to initiate individual purchase agreements.
Valley Forge CEO Lou Brothers said, "We are pleased that the Odin and Thor-LVX detection systems have been awarded this important recognition from this important Middle East Country. We are looking forward to a meaningful long-term relationship."
The THOR LVX Explosive Detection System screens cargo containers and checked baggage, using gamma rays rather than x-rays that are currently being used. Instead of creating an image of what is inside, THOR LVX's gamma rays initiate a small scale photo-nuclear reaction which identifies the chemical composition of any explosive or narcotic plus the quantity and location. It is a perfect solution for ports, airports, military bases, international border crossings, government buildings and high-risk facilities
The ODIN Personnel Screening System is a very low dose digital imaging system that detects metal and non-metal objects hidden on or inside the human body. It has high contrast sensitivity, which detects non-metallic items, such as sheet explosives or narcotics hidden in clothing, swallowed or in body cavities. It is safe for pregnant women, maintains privacy and scans individuals in about 5 seconds per person, or up to 720 persons per hour, without requiring the removal of shoes and jackets.
