PITTSBURGH, October 13, 2014 — ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS™) is launching our newest innovation for Standoff Explosive and Narcotic Detection – the VeroVision™. We will be debuting this product at the Association of the U. S. Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition, being held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC from October 13 to 15, 2014. Demonstrations of the capabilities will be conducted at the ChemImage Sensor System booth (Booth #2343).
The VeroVision™ is a revolutionary shortwave infrared (SWIR) hyperspectral imaging sensor capable of detecting explosive and narcotic residues on environmental surfaces at standoff distances from 1 to 20 m. Its powerful detection algorithms and operating software provide exceptional detection capability while minimizing false alarms. VeroVision™ will find use at many types of military vehicle and personnel entry control points to warn of the potential for explosive or narcotics being brought into the facility.
“We believe that VeroVision™ is one of the first wide-field detector systems specifically designed to detect the presence of dangerous materials environmental surfaces,” stated Matthew P. Nelson, Ph.D., Chief Scientist and Business Director. “No longer do crews need to perform sampling of randomly selected vehicles and persons passing through checkpoints. The rapid detection time of VeroVision™ enables checkpoint operators to perform essentially 100% screening, greatly increasing the probability of detecting a threat.”
“And in addition to better information, our standoff capability puts the checkpoint operator further the suspected bomber and thus, further away from the danger. We see this improved operator safety as maybe the greatest feature of VeroVision™ standoff detection,” says Steven Mitts, Director, Corporate Strategy & Business Development at ChemImage.
