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.
Synapse Technology was originally dreamed up in 2009. Founder Ian Cinnamon worked in Harvard Medical School's Visual Search and Attention Laboratory, where he was exposed to the sporadic visual search problems faced both by the National Institute of Health and the Department of Homeland Security. He always wanted to solve the problem, but solutions like artificial intelligence were not yet viable.
Synapse Technology was founded in 2016. Bruno Faviero, Simanta Gautam, and Ian Cinnamon brought together years of cognitive science research and the latest advances in artificial intelligence. Synapse Technology set out to use artificial intelligence 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.
In 2018, Synapse Technology commercialized the world's first artificial intelligence system for X-ray security checkpoints. The product, known as Syntech ONE®, processed over 5,000,000 passenger bags in its first year.
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.
In 2019, Peter Kant joined Synapse Technology Corporation as its new Chief Executive Officer. Previously, he served as Vice President of SRI International, a large non-profit R&D institute based in Silicon Valley. Previous to SRI, Peter served as Executive Vice President of one of the largest global X-ray manufacturers. Peter managed the company’s federal business, its international growth, its labs, and its external relations. He is an expert in programs that develop emerging technology for public sector missions.
