Explosive and radiation detection experts join forces

Splinternet : 05 June, 2008  (Company News)
Co-operation agreement signed between Splinternet and Guardian Technologies to make the best use of their explosion and radiation detection technologies in the fight against terrorism
Guardian Technologies International has signed a teaming agreement with Splinternet Holdings to make use of their security technologies and existing relationships in pursuit of domestic and international business opportunities in the private and public sectors. The collaborative relationship involves the cross-marketing, sales and deployment of Guardian's PinPoint automated explosives detection software and Splinternet's DefenTect gamma radiation detection network wherever human life or physical assets are threatened by acts of terrorism.

Guardian and Splinternet will provide combined systems to existing alliances and affiliations including transportation companies, government agencies and private clients. The entities will work on prototype security systems and joint venture installations. Together, the companies' technologies offer a strategically powerful shield against terrorism.

Splinternet's DefenTect threat awareness architecture, networked to its GammaTectâ„¢ line of unattended perimeter and portal sensors, sends alerts to incident command centers when threat-level radiological source material, the kind used to produce dirty bombs, is detected. System administrators can designate alerts to be triggered to PDAs, cell phones, pagers or other mobile clients. Connected over IP networks, the pervasive grid of sensors can be linked to a customer's existing surveillance system. Wide-area dispersed sensors can be hidden under ceilings or in walls to avoid detection and compromise.

Guardian's PinPoint platform agnostic software analyses images at airports or facilities, in parcels and on persons, distinguishing minute variations in images that are impossible for the human eye to differentiate.

"Splinternet's DefenTect control panel has solid synergies with Guardian's automated threat detection software," said Bill Donovan, President and COO of Guardian Technologies. "DefenTect delivers an innovative threat awareness safeguard that's highly sought after in the current homeland security environment."

"Guardian's PinPoint automated threat detection software provides highly accurate threat-item detection," said James Ackerly, CEO of Splinternet. "DefenTect offers Guardian an added layer of defense to provide protection for their customers."
