Port and cargo security has become an international concern. Earlier this year, US Secretary of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge, stated in an interview with FOX News, "It's pretty clear, given their (terrorists) focus on international transportation ... those are current themes in threat reporting ... (that) thousands of vessels on the oceans could transfer terrorists or terrorist weapons."
Secretary Ridge added: "The port security measures we are putting in place - both here at home and abroad - are about building on our capabilities and strengthening each layer of defense."
John Cockburn, Chief Executive Officer of Bulldog Technologies stated, "We believe our groundbreaking technology is the most advanced in the industry. The deployment of our wireless port security solutions could play an important role in helping the U.S. and other countries achieve a higher level of security. I am very pleased with the opportunity to demonstrate our technology at the most widely attended Maritime security show in the world."
