SAIC to acquire Reveal Imaging Technologies
- August 2, 2010
IT contractor Science Applications International Corp. announced Monday it had entered a definitive agreement to acquire Reveal Imaging Technologies, a threat detection products and services company.
Reveal, which will become part of SAIC’s Transportation Technology Business Unit, will enhance SAIC’s homeland security portfolio. Reveal was founded in 2002 after the U.S. government increased mandates of checked baggage in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Reveal is one of only a few companies whose products have completed the Transportation Security Administration’s certification process for automatic screening of checked baggage for explosives.
The acquisition is expected to be completed by the end of August. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
