Epsilon to re-sell Defetect sensor equipment

Splinternet : 20 November, 2008  (Company News)
Reseller partnership combines skills in specifying and installing radiation detection equipment and sensor management and monitoring software
Defentect has announced that Epsilon Systems has been named a VAR for future integration and installation of Defentect's DM3 sensor management, monitoring and messaging software and gamma radiation detection security solutions.

Defentect systems mitigate chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNE) event impact in critical transportation infrastructures, hospitals, commercial and industrial facilities, local, state, government and military locations, for example. Defentect's sensor systems safeguard against illicit removal of legitimate radiological source materials or a Dirty Bomb attack, as well as protect areas from incoming radiological contamination.

The companies plan to install broadly deployed radiation detection systems combined with leading edge security technology solutions, including Defentect's DM3 software for management of multiple CBRNE sensors. These COTS (commercial off the shelf) technologies will be integrated into customised solutions designed specifically to address unique homeland and physical site security integration issues faced by entities worldwide.

"The accessibility of a range of radioactive materials commonly used in healthcare and industry poses challenges to security. This is a critical safety issue," said James Ackerly, CEO of Splinternet Holdings, the parent company of Defentect. "Our relationship with Epsilon Systems will enable clients to augment their existing security systems by integrating radiological detection technologies and other CBRNE sensors through DM3 software."

DM3 communicates data from perimeter or portal radiological sensors to an incident command centre as well as to PDAs, cellphones or pagers. When gamma rays from Dirty Bomb substances interact with Defentect's Gammatect family of sensors, proprietary algorithms alert authorities to radiation that may pose a security threat. DM3 helps security personnel respond more effectively to radiation alerts by integrating radiological status information with IP Video surveillance and access control systems. Upon alarm, Defentect DM3 sends information to responders' mobile devices, video surveillance and other systems critical to implementing standard procedures such as those specified under NRC orders. DM3 software is sensor agnostic and can be tied to a variety of threat sensors. Defentect's Gammatect Plus sensors discriminate medical isotopes and background radiation to minimise the impact of innocent positive alarms.

Epsilon Systems integrates surveillance and incident management solutions for high value assets and critical infrastructure for maritime, law enforcement / public safety, transportation, DHS, DOD, and commercial industries. They hold security clearances for handling classified projects for the US Government and military. The company designs and integrates disparate software and sensor management systems including, but not limited to, intelligent video analytics, radar, sonar, vibration sensors, acoustic sensors, access control and blue force tracking.
