SAINT CLAIR SHORES, Mich., 17 August 2006. DefenderTech International Solutions has announced a detection system able to identify the types of containers that might be used to house liquid explosives, even if concealed beneath clothing.
While carry-on restriction of liquids and gels is a defense against the threat of liquid explosives, the DefenderTech Protadas threat detection system camera would provide further, more comprehensive defense against liquid explosives concealed beneath clothing or "body suits" and placed in containers made of plastic, composite, ceramic, metal or non-ferrous metal.
The system would detect devices of the size and materials most commonly used to construct non-liquid explosive-based bombs. These materials are those that metal detectors and other "sniffer" devices cannot detect. This detection happens automatically, at full-motion speeds as a subject passes through the camera's view.
Now available from DefenderTech International Solutions, the Protadas threat detection system is a complete proactive threat assessment, detection, and suppression process.
The core of the process is the deployment and use of a passive millimeter wave weapons detection system that can detect objects made of metal, plastic, ceramic, or other composite material at stand-off distances.
Security personnel can build a proactive layer of protection at the perimeter of airports, other transportation hubs, ports, large venues, commercial high rises -- virtually any location where thwarting explosives and assault weapons threats is mission critical.
