Artificial Intelligence for a Threat-Free World

Defining the Standard for Security Innovation and Efficiency

Advanced, technologically-capable security checkpoints to combat the world's toughest threats. Based on the most recent advancements from industry, computer science, and cognitive science research.

Advancing Security

Synapse Technology was founded in 2016. Bringing together years of cognitive science research and the latest advances in artificial intelligence, Synapse Technology set out to enhance detection at security checkpoints worldwide.

In 2017, Synapse Technology established relationships with regulators worldwide to begin pioneering the rollout of enhanced algorithms at checkpoints. Synapse Technology proved the platform was viable and announced product compatibility with major X-Ray OEMs.

Synapse Technology established the Global Airport Innovation Network (GAIN) in 2018, welcoming several founding members, including Narita Airport (NRT), Arlanda Airport (ARN), Schipol Airport (AMS), San Jose Airport (SJC), and several others.

Synapse Technology partnered with Astrophysics Inc. to integrate Syntech ONE into tens of thousands of security checkpoints around the world.
