Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS)

Anticipating the urgent need for technological advancement at airport checkpoints, Integrated Defense and Security Solutions’ (IDSS) founder and former President of L-3 Security & Detection Systems, Joseph Paresi, partnered with Photo Diagnostic Systems, Inc. (PDSI) in May 2012. With intimate knowledge of the threats and challenges associated with manual X-ray based solutions in use at airport checkpoints and secure facilities around the world, IDSS developed a patent-pending, fully-automated approach to checkpoint baggage screening. IDSS’ solutions utilize True Dual-Energy analysis based on mature medical computed tomography (CT) in a cost-effective design. Visit to learn more about this innovative scanner.
