SCO- Steel City Optronics – Longmont Colorado adds Howard to their Strategic Advisory Board

Steel City Optronics (SCO), have developed a camera (patent -pending), that detects concealed weapons and explosives at a distances even on moving subjects.  This faster, smaller lighter and less expense solution is a game changer.

Hidden weapons are now exposed, the SCO solution penetrates packaging and even clothing to identify metallic and non metallic objects.  And it’s fast – objects can be moving and images will still be clear and delivered immediately.  Not just fair weather either the camera penetrates obscurants and can see through miles of fog, dust and smoke.

I am pleased to assist in bringing this solution to the market and introducing SCO to the various channel leaders and enterprises  seeking an innovative addition to their security protocols.
