Bilogical Detector<div class="body"> <p>The SmartBio Sensor from <span style="COLOR&#58;rgb(255,0,0);"><strong>Smiths Detection</strong></span> of Edgewood, Maryland, now has increased sensitivity and enhanced software to detect airborne biological microbes and biotoxins, with active monitoring and classification to help protect against biological threats. The battery-powered sensor is portable and rugged, so it can be used to proactively protect public venues, including perimeter monitoring for indoor and outdoor events. The system continuously samples air, trapping biological particles on a sensor surface. The onboard computer then detects and classifies the materials, triggering an alarm if a potential threat is discovered. Agents are retained for confirmatory analysis and archiving. </p> </div>

Fire Detection<div class="body"> <div class="thumbnail"> <img title="" alt="" src="http&#58;//" width="144" height="137" /> </div> <p>A new very-early-warning fire detector from <span style="COLOR&#58;rgb(255,0,0);"><strong>System Sensor </strong></span>of St. Charles, Illinois, protects personnel and assets from fire by detecting the faintest traces of smoke in challenging environments. The FAAST Fire Alarm Aspiration Sensing Technology draws air samples through a pipe network. The dual vision sensing technology uses an extremely sensitive blue LED to provide detection up to 60 minutes before combustion. In addition it uses an infrared laser to identify nuisances like dust that can cause false alarms and downtime. An onboard Ethernet port easily connects to a computer, a network, and the Internet, enabling managers to monitor and protect their environments from any Internet browser, smart phone, or mobile device. The detector can also e-mail status notifications to multiple addresses. </p> </div>
