“The need for a [affordable] weapons detection robot across the U.S., especially in schools and other public gathering locations, has never been greater,” said Intellitronix CFO, Susan Tubbs. “As we stated in an earlier announcement, and as a Mother, we cannot do enough to make schools a safe environment for children and as a Company, Intellitronix is now ready to meet that demand.”
