"This follow on order will serve to accelerate our efforts toward commercialization and further solidifies our collaboration with this established partner as we address the burgeoning opportunities for the Owlstone sensor in the homeland defense and military markets."

In response, Michaela Clarke, Capability Manager Security & Surveillance Systems at SELEX GALILEO said, "We have been working closely with Owlstone and other sensor manufacturers to forward technological capabilities in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) detection. Owlstone was selected for their key technical expertise in chemical detection utilizing their micro-fabricated FAMIS (Field-Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometry) technology." Ms. Clarke went on to comment, "Working closely with Owlstone towards a mutually beneficial goal will help form key alliances to pursue mid-term business and provide a route to developing market leading products for the future."


SELEX GALILEO is the brand adopted by Galileo Avionica SpA and SELEX Sensors and Airborne Systems Ltd, Finmeccanica companies, to present a common identity to the market.
