GE, Smiths call off joint venture

News has come out of the UK that Smiths Detection and GE have called off their collaboration to tackle the market for scanning devices used in airports and other screening applications. I consider that big news. A number of news organizations have speculated that Smiths is being broken up, which could mean the Smiths Detection arm is simply up for sale. Who's buying? I still wonder what this means for Registered Traveler.


[...] Remember when GE Security tried to sell off a piece of its Homeland Protection business in a merger with Smiths Detection? Remember how that fell through? [...]
