Company Overview

Synapse Technology Corporation modernizes the defense image intelligence industry with proprietary deep learning and computer vision technology.

Synapse Technology first tackles security screening checkpoints with our intelligent threat detection system, which operates on baggage X-Ray & CT scanners. As a member of the US Government OTAP program, we are collaborating with TSA, Sandia National Labs, and checkpoint OEMs.

Current baggage security checkpoints have a low accuracy due to their dependance on inaccurate human perception to identify prohibited items. Our software systems increase accuracy significantly, while helping operators avoid false positives with our safe-item detection ability.
