Austin, Texas September 24, 2018 – Astrotech Corporation (NASDAQ: ASTC) reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2018.


Thomas B. Pickens III, Chairman and CEO of Astrotech, stated, “Fiscal 2018 was an excellent year in terms of product endorsement at 1st Detect. We achieved three major milestones toward our goal of securing airports, borders, package distribution centers, and other public venues from explosive threats, as we strive to modernize the explosives trace detector (ETD) market.” The three milestones include:  




1st Detect began Test and Evaluation (T&E) activities at the Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Laboratory (TSL). The TRACER 1000 is currently undergoing Developmental Test and Evaluation (DT&E), and is expected to enter Independent Test and Evaluation (IT&E) in the coming months. A successful IT&E review would lead to TSL Certification. Once TSL Certification is complete, our product is ready to undergo TSL Qualification Testing and field trials, the result of which is a recommendation of whether the system should be placed on the Qualified Products List (QPL), which is necessary for deployment in U.S. airports.



The TRACER 1000 was accepted into the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Air Cargo Screening Technology Qualification Test (ACSQT) program. Certification under this program would enable the TRACER 1000 to be purchased for use in air cargo handling facilities throughout the United States, to include both package distribution centers and checked luggage at airports. This summer, the TRACER 1000 underwent substantial testing at one of the world’s largest package distribution companies, as well as at a major U.S. airline’s cargo facility. Results from these tests will support the data package for submission into the ACSQT program.



1st Detect applied to and was accepted into the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) Common Evaluation Process (CEP) for both aviation checkpoint and cargo security. ECAC Certification under this program would enable the TRACER 1000 to be sold to airports throughout Europe and other non-U.S. countries. Testing under this program kicked off this month and we anticipate feedback in the coming months.


There is no assurance that any of the further steps detailed in the milestones mentioned above will be achieved or that our technology will be approved by any of the programs listed.
