OptoScreener(R) Enhances Single View X-ray Systems With Real-time Automated Liquid Threat Detection

QUEBEC CITY, March 15, 2011 - Optosecurity Inc., a leader in threat detection technology, announced
today that following extensive testing by ECAC, its OptoScreener(R) has been
certified on a number of host checkpoint X-ray scanner platforms and conforms
to all criterion allowing for Type C operations. Type C compliance means that
multiple liquid containers are screened with no requirement for containers to
be opened, all containers removed from cabin baggage.

Optosecurity has gained certification on single view X-ray platforms
providing airport operators with the only "upgrade" Type C Certified single
view X-ray LEDS available today on the market. OptoScreener(R) has been EU
Type C Certified on Smiths Detection HI-SCAN6040i and 6046si platforms.

With the gradual relaxing of liquid restrictions surrounding passenger
cabin baggage within the EU commencing on 29th April 2011, (culminating with
a full lifting of restrictions by 29th April 2013), the OptoScreener(R)
enables single view X-ray platforms to automatically detect liquid threats in
real time. Airports throughout the EU are looking for technology solutions
that will enable them not only to comply with new regulations on liquids but
that will also offer a cost effective way of screening liquids without
affecting throughput, or significantly altering their existing operations.

Eric Bergeron, President and CEO, Optosecurity, said "Optosecurity is
extremely proud that its liquid threat detection technology has been
certified by ECAC as Type C. Our OptoScreener(R) system provides airport
operators with the only solution on the market to upgrade their existing
single view X-ray machines. We offer airport operators a chance to protect
their invested capital and comply with Type C regulation, making compliance
compatible with real life operations."
