Passport Systems Inc.

    The Company and Its Mission

    The world is a dangerous place today. In the United States, as well as across the globe, the threat of terrorism is on the rise.  Even more troubling is the mounting evidence of nuclear terrorists actively seeking the radiological materials needed to wield dirty bombs or more sophisticated nuclear weapons.  After the 9/11 attack on U.S. soil, two MIT physicists, Dr. Robert Ledoux and Dr. William Bertozzi, launched Passport Systems, Inc. to utilize technology to fight back against the threats. Between 1993 and 2014 there were nearly 1,150 incidents involving theft, criminal possession, or loss of radiological materials. In fact, there were 188 instances where nuclear or radiological materials were reported stolen, lost or missing in 2015 alone.
