VeriTainer Corp. reports that the Indonesian Directorate General of Intellectual Property Rights has granted the company a patent for its crane-based radiation detection technology. The technology is used for scanning shipping containers to prevent the transport of nuclear materials and weapons. The technology enables scanning of 100 percent of shipping containers entering and exiting ports without disrupting the flow of commerce. This patent adds to a growing list of international patents obtained by VeriTainer for its technology, strengthening the company's position as a force in maritime nuclear detection technology.

Indonesia is an island nation that relies on maritime trade for economic stability, making it an influential entity in the maritime industry. John Alioto, CEO of VeriTainer noted, "We are extremely pleased to have the fundamental CMS patent in a jurisdiction as important as Indonesia," He added "Along with Singapore, Taiwan and New Zealand, this marks the 4th international issuance of this patent VeriTainer has received. Office actions from around the globe indicate that VeriTainer will have the fundamental CMS patent in a great number of other key geographies."

Two other key patents on VeriTainer's technologythe company's fourth and fifth patents, which evolved out of VeriTainer's Oakland trials in 2007 and 2008were issued in the United States earlier this year. Those patents have also been filed internationally. Additionally, VeriTainer has several other unique innovations in its patent program pipeline.
