About Guardian Technologies International
The impact of Guardian’s industry-first computer aided detection technologies are immediate and profound for helping to eliminate human error in both the Homeland Security and the Medical Industry sectors. The Company’s software solutions can be seamlessly installed to compliment existing imaging devices, such as baggage scanners and medical MRI, to scan the contents of any image and immediately identify items of interest not easily discernable by the human eye.
Airport Security: Guardian’s technology compliments and enhances current-generation baggage x-ray scanners with the ability to automatically and effectively detect, locate, and identify explosives and other types of threats.
Disease Identification: Existing medical imaging devices used in Computer Aided Detection (CAD) are further improved with Guardian’s auto-diagnostic ability to detect anomalous tissue (e.g., tumors) and other potential disease states or conditions.
Technology-Independence: Because Guardian’s technologies utilize and process the actual image output generated by the original imaging systems, virtually any existing or future imaging device can be upgraded with Guardian’s products, delivering an instant, multi-billion dollar potential customer base with no competition.
Guardian’s technology and product development partnerships include a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRDA) with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security- Science and Technology Directorate. The Company’s platform and product suite is protected by a robust patent portfolio. They are also ramping up new technologies and plan to acquire complimentary technologies to accelerate the Company’s high-growth business model.
