Zero False Alarm Rate History On Airborne Toxin Detection System

Building Protection Systems (BPSI) : 17 March, 2010  (New Product)
CBRN Detection System for buildings and public venues achieves 100,000 hours of operation without any false positives having been registered
Zero False Alarm Rate History On Airborne Toxin Detection System
Building Protection Systems (BPSI), developers of the first complete Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) detection system to actively and reliably protect buildings, mass transit stations, stadiums, and public venues from airborne toxins, today announced a critical milestone in its achievement of surpassing 100,000 hours of operation of it's Sentry One detection technology without a single false-positive or false-negative, a feat that until now has not been accomplished in the industry.

"The false-positive nuisance alarm problem has plagued the detection industry for decades," said Greg Eiler, Founder and CEO, BPSI. "Infrastructure managers have been afraid to adopt unreliable first generation technologies rendering millions of people unprotected from a CBRN release. Our achievement of surpassing the 100,000 operational hour milestone is a big step in encouraging more security professionals to adopt this proven solution and further strengthens BPSI's position as the recognized leader in the next generation of CBRN detection technologies."

Reports from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Center for Disease Control (CDC), Lawrence Berkeley Lab, Oakridge National Lab, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and others point out the extraordinary vulnerability of mass transit stations, buildings and public gathering places to an accidental airborne CBRN release or targeted terrorist attack. Those same reports suggest that the industry had yet to provide a reliable solution that could operate in a commercial environment.

"Overcoming the false alarm challenge is significant," said Tom Ridge, the first U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, CEO of Ridge Global and Senior Advisor to BPSI. "The global security community needs to decrease our vulnerability to CBRN attacks, which makes BPSI's achievement all the more encouraging to those working to mitigate this threat."

BPSI's active continuous air monitoring systems are in use in Fortune 100 corporate headquarters buildings and other facilities. Each system detects, and identifies dangerous toxins in seconds. Upon detection, the system automatically activates the predetermined mitigation protocol. In parallel, BPSI's system relays real-time toxin and location data to BPSI's Remote Monitoring Center who communicate with first responders to expedite a safe rescue and recovery.

"The fact that we have eclipsed 100,000 operational hours in the field without a false alarm sets BPSI miles ahead of our competition and the government labs." said Mike Welden, SVP of Homeland Security for BPSI. "We have a proven reliable solution to a known vulnerability that is commercially accepted, U.S. Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act Designated, priced right and ready to save lives."
