Portable radiation detection for Illinois

Polimatrix : 20 June, 2008  (Application Story)
Polimatrix to supply radiation detection equipment for use in emergency services vehicles in the state of Illinois
Polimatrix has announced the execution of a master purchase contract and an initial purchase order from the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System (ILEAS). Homeland Security Capital Corporation delivers products and services to the fast growing homeland security industry through its portfolio of companies, and is an international provider of specialised, technology-based radiological, nuclear, environmental, disaster relief, and security solutions to government and commercial customers.

On November 1, 2007, Polimatrix was awarded a statewide law enforcement and emergency services procurement that we believe was the largest such award in the United States. The award could result in the placement of approximately 20,000 portable radiation detector/dosimeters into every emergency services vehicle in the state of Illinois. The award followed a yearlong process that included an industry-wide competition with detailed technical and field-testing by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and Illinois State Police and technical analysis by the Argonne National Laboratory.

The recent contract execution followed negotiations regarding final technical specifications. As part of the Purchase Agreement, ILEAS immediately issued an initial purchase order for over 5,000 instruments.

Executive Director James Page of ILEAS said, "We look forward to a long and mutually profitable relationship with Polimatrix."

Thomas McMillen, Homeland Security Capital chairman and CEO said, "Homeland Security Capital Corporation and Polimatrix are pleased to move forward into the operational phase of this important project with Illinois. This program will be monitored by many other state and local entities around the country, and we are ready to assist them with this important security issue."

Polimatrix, Incorporated CEO Martin Erim said, "We are eager to start production, delivery and training support for this milestone program."
