ChemImage Sensor Systems to Introduce New Standoff Detection Systems

ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS) announced it will be introducing the company’s new Aperio and LightGuard standoff detection systems at this year’s SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing Conference at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD.

The Aperio is a unique, portable, handheld sensor utilizing hyperspectral imaging (HSI). It is capable of providing real-time, standoff, visual screening and detection of chemical threats on various surfaces including people, vehicles and buildings. The strength of the Aperio is that it is a noncontact, passive sensor which does not require any reagents or lasers, and enables personnel to scan a wide area to detect and locate materials of interest from a safe distance. This is in contrast to point sensors that are currently on the market today that detect and identify targets at close range.

The LightGuard is a stationary system which provides real-time standoff detection of explosive and chemical threats on the surfaces of vehicles, personnel and other items from a safe distance through the use of HSI sensor technology. The key feature of the system is the use of wide-area imaging, which allows real-time detection of areas significantly larger than what is provided by traditional point detection systems.  The system also gives the user the ability to detect and react to a possible threat at significant standoff distances in real-time.

“We are very excited to attend the SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing Conference,” said Dr. Matt Nelson, Chief Scientist at CISS. “We look forward to introducing our technology to a new audience and discussing the unique detection capabilities of our sensor systems.”
