A firm which has been selected to demonstrate the performance of IBAC and other biological threat sensors in a mass transit facility has asserted that it is looking forward to the opportunity.
Wayne Bryden, chief science officer for ICx Technologies, which manufactures sensors for homeland security, force protection and commercial applications, said that the company is enthusiastic at being given the chance to display its technological capabilities.
His comments follow an announcement that the business has been awarded a contract by the Department of Homeland Security to demonstrate new sensors that can quickly detect and identify the potential release of a bio-threat agent.
"As part of the Detect-to-Protect Programme, we have and continue to develop cutting edge sensors for the detection and identification of biological agents," stated Mr Bryden.
This news comes after Networkfleet unveiled its latest product, a sensor expansion module hardware device combined with software reporting, which detects voltage events from vehicles.
