Canadian distribution agreement for radiation detectors

Splinternet : 11 September, 2008  (Company News)
Dirty bomb sensors and threat monitoring to be supplied to the Canadian market by S2 Asset Protection in agreement signed with Splinternet
S2 Asset Protection has signed an agreement to distribute Defentect's DM3 integrated threat-event management, monitoring and messaging software and Defentect's Gammatect line of gamma radiation sensors, expanding its high-end portfolio of security technology offerings. The agreement provides Defentect with direct access to Canadian markets. Defentect is a business unit of Splinternet Holdings.

S2 Asset Protection is a Halifax, Nova Scotia-based security firm specialising in providing leading protection technologies to government, industrial, commercial and energy companies. S2AP markets sophisticated object detection and auto tracking video surveillance systems integrating automated pan tilt zoom cameras to track vehicles or people in priority zones. S2AP supplies pocket PC viewing of remote video in real time over a cellular connection using high compression/low level bandwidth Delta Codec Digital Video recording for mobile and covert applications. Now, S2AP brings Defentect's unattended radiation detection system to establishments seeking to safeguard against the illegal transport of Dirty Bomb source materials.

Defentect DM3 is an unmanned gamma radiation detection network that integrates data from a wide-area pervasive grid of threat-event sensors to an incident command centre. DM3 is networked using IP and managed over the Web. When high-energy gamma rays from Dirty Bomb components interact with Gammatect sensors, DM3's proprietary algorithms analyse the data and alert authorities to radiation that may pose a security threat. Communication features of DM3 provide the ability to receive and process data over a network from the radiation sensor to the command centre and to generate notifications via SMS, XML, e-mail and other systems. The addition of strategically placed Gammatect Plus sensors enables DM3 to identify radiation-emitting isotopes.

Defentect DM3 helps security personnel more effectively respond to radiation alerts by integrating radiological status information with IP Video surveillance and access control systems. Upon alarm, Defentect DM3 sends information to responders' cell phones, pagers, video surveillance and other systems critical to implementing standard procedures such as those specified under Nuclear Regulatory Control orders. DM3 proprietary software is sensor agnostic. Defentect's Gammatect Plus sensors discriminate medical isotopes and background radiation to minimise the impact of innocent positive alarms.
