Drive-Through X-ray System Identifies Threats

The CarSCAN X-ray imaging system by Spectrum San Diego identifies concealed threats, like improvised explosive devices, in cars and light trucks at vehicle checkpoints. The machine utilizes low-dose, dual-energy X-ray imaging to detect explosives, contraband and stowaways. Vehicles can be driven through the system at a maximum of 10 mph, and it can be installed in existing traffic lanes in approximately four hours.

A monitor displays the color-coded scanned images, which helps officers identify a vehicle's contents, similar to the baggage scanners used at airports. Visit Spectrum San Diego for more information.

American Technologies Network's 7x50RF Omega daytime binocular is built to withstand rugged handling and extreme environments. The binocular provides 7x magnification with multicoated optics for superior light transmission and an individual diopter focus for clearer images.

Video Aids in Pandemic Preparation

The H1N1 virus -- a.k.a. the swine flu -- provided a wake-up call for the nation's pandemic preparation. Global Net Productions created a video to aid individuals, communities and businesses on how to protect themselves from a pandemic flu outbreak. The Pandemic Survival Kit DVD incorporates federal, state and local disaster officials' knowledge about what the public should know before and during a pandemic. Visit Global Net Productions for more information.


Radiation Protection for First Responders

For first responders and emergency personnel who may be exposed to radiation, a monitor that measures radiation exposure can be key to safety. The DOSE-GARD Microelectronic Dosimeter by General Atomics Electronic Systems monitors radiation exposure in rem (the standard unit for measuring absorbed doses of radiation) and displays the results on a compact device. Optional software downloads the information to a computer for records management.

Users can program DOSE-GARD to set off an audible and visible alarm when a set radiation level is reached. The device weighs 1 ounce and is 1.5 inches in diameter, and can be attached to a person's wrist, lanyard, pocket, belt or retractable lanyard. Visit General Atomics Electronic Systems for more information.
