NATO Suicide Attacks Heighten Need for Thermal Matrix Threat Detection Technology

Thermal Matrix USA is a leading developer in PBIED (Person Borne Improvised Explosive Device) research. Recent acts of terror around the world provide tragic reason for the company's threat detection technology, including the ACT system, designed to detect suicide bombers before they strike.

Tampa, FL, April 08, 2011 --( Four suicide bombers died Saturday after trying to attack Camp Phoenix, a NATO base in Afghanistan. Police on the scene indicate two of the attackers blew themselves up, with two more shot and killed.

“These incidents of terror require our international forces to have the most advanced security technology at their disposal,” said Richard Salem, founder and CEO of Thermal Matrix USA, a leader in the threat detection industry. “Thermal Matrix continues to make advances in this field every day.”

Most notable of those advancements is the Thermal Matrix ACT system, a suicide bomb detection system designed to stop the type of attack launched against Camp Phoenix. Utilizing the power of infrared sensors, the ACT system is able to visually detect a suicide bomber at extreme standoff distances, long before the bomber can inflict terror.

“The ACT system employs a dedicated military grade infrared sensor coupled with state of the art software to automatically detect concealed objects under layers of clothing,” explained Michael Reinpoldt, Executive Director of Thermal Matrix. “It can be used indoors and outdoors at extreme standoff distances, to detect all types of threats, including guns, knives, or powered explosives, liquids and gels.”

Key advantages to the ACT system include the safety of early detection, the expedience of the system's accuracy and reliability, and the system's ability to inspect individuals covertly. It does all of this without any invasion of privacy concerns, as the ACT system is not an x-ray, and does not look through clothing.

Through powerful optics built into the infrared sensor, security personnel have a new line of protection that extends far beyond any potential target site.

Equally as important as the IR sensor is the laptop computer running Thermal Matrix algorithms, the key to early detection. Touch screen controls make it easy for security personnel to stop, fast forward, or rewind any scene. In addition, scenes can be recorded on the hard drive, and saved for future review and analysis.
