AIS Expands Security Assessment and Training Capability.

Business Editors

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 4, 2003

Advanced Interactive Systems, Inc. (www.ais-sim.com) has expanded its capability of security assessment and training for ports, aviation, law enforcement, anti-terrorism, and public venues. AIS has formed a new group, NASS (New Age Security Solutions), which will be based in Washington D.C. and which will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Advanced Interactive Systems.

NASS is lead by Rafi Ron, and includes a team of leading worldwide experts in aviation and security. Ron's most recent projects include the development of broad security programs at Boston's Logan International Airport and Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in Puerto Rico. The security programs at each airport included an initial concept master plan to secure both the airport's interior and perimeter. Specifics included implementing a behavior pattern recognition (BPR(TM)) training program, the first of its kind in the United States, as well as the concept and initial design of an inline hold baggage screening system at Logan Airport. Ron is credited with being one of the establishers of the "sky marshal" program at El Al Airlines.

"Our number one goal is to train people who risk their lives for us," says Tim May, president and CEO of Advanced Interactive Systems. "Analysis of the risks inherent to a position or a facility is the first step to ensuring the personnel are ready to respond. We are constantly striving to enhance our training solutions offerings."

"A security assessment is critical to long-term readiness of personnel, and long-term deterrence of terrorists and other illegal entities," states Rafi Ron, president of NASS. He added, "Behavior pattern recognition -- BPR(TM) -- training improves the effectiveness of security personnel."

Ron is a Business Partner of Airport Council International, a member of the Global Aviation Security Action Group (GASAG) and the World Standing Security Committee. Ron was also recently recognized with the Award of Excellence for Lifetime Service by Aviation Security International.
