Titan to Provide Mail Sanitizers to U.S.

Share this content:
The Titan Corp., a technology provider to the U.S. military, said that the U.S. Postal Service has selected it to provide up to 20 electron beam systems and services to sanitize mail and eliminate the threat of anthrax contamination.


San Diego-based Titan said it will subcontract with its subsidiary SureBeam to provide the proprietary electron beam systems, which uses electron beam and X-ray technology to destroy harmful bacteria.


The USPS will buy eight systems for about $40 million, with an option to buy 12 more, Titan said. In addition to providing the equipment, the company said it will operate and maintain the systems.


Titan said it expects the first systems to be received by the Postal Service in the Washington, D.C. area in November. The USPS has also contracted to use a Titan facility to sanitize mail, using electron beam technology.


For the past eight years, Titan has used SureBeam electron beam technology to sterilize medical products, and for the last 18 months the technology has been used by SureBeam to eliminate dangerous bacteria in food.
