NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwire -05/14/12)- IDO Security, Inc. (OTC.BB: IDOI), developer of the innovative MagShoe™ shoe scanning device (SSD), today announced that the Company has completed an order of the MagShoe™ 3G, installing multiple units in the Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport in Rome, Italy. The tender offer was issued by the Italian Aeroporto di Roma through the Company’s local partner, ALCA, to supply and install the MagShoe at the airport’s domestic and international gates.
Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport is located in Fiumicino, just 16 miles southwest of Rome. It is Italy’s first and largest airport and Europe’s sixth busiest airport with over 38 million passengers traveling through the airport. The airport currently has four terminals for domestic, international and intercontinental flights.
“This is not the first time Fiumicino Airport has ordered and installed the MagShoe units as part of their routine security process. The first MagShoe units, models of the second generation, were installed in Fiumicino in 2007. This new order expresses a vote of confidence by the ADR in the MagShoe and its technology,” commented Aldo Lombardo, President of ALCA srl.
Avishai Rotshtain, Marketing Manager for IDO Security, also commented, “We are proud to continue to serve one of Europe’s most vital airports with the installation of the new MagShoe™ 3G series. With the recent security breaches from the assassination attempt on the governor of Kandahar, Afghanistan to the bomb plots against U.S.-bound jets, there is urgency for airports around the world to enhance their existing security equipment. We continue to see strong endorsements of our product from the EU as the MagShoe™ 3G offers to close the security gap in detection of threats in the shoes and lower extremities which can be easily integrated into existing security checkpoints.”
