Portendo launches P.Eye explosives detector at Counter Terror Expo '09 in London

Swedish threat detection and security technology company Portendo launches its new product P.Eye at the Counter Terror Expo '09 in London, 10-11th of February. The P.Eye standoff threat detector, based on Portendo's proprietary technology, can detect and identify explosives in a matter of seconds from a distance of up to 50 metres.

- Airports, power plants and other potential civilian targets experience an ever increasing terrorist threat, creating a high demand for systems like the Portendo P.Eye, says Peter Strömbeck, VP Product Management at Portendo.
When integrated with existing perimeter protection, the unit offers a powerful security solution for public buildings and other exposed civilian targets. Mounted on a military vehicle, the P.Eye becomes a mobile detection unit capable of identifying potential threats in the surrounding area.

- The P.Eye represents the first commercial product with standoff threat detection technology of this kind, which means that there's a substantial market potential, says Peter Strömbeck. Its versatility together with the accurate long distance readings makes the P.Eye an effective security solution for counter-terrorism.

The P.Eye has been developed in co-operation with the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI). Its technology is based on Raman spectroscopy, which provides a molecular signature of hazardous agents enabling immediate long-range detection and identification of explosives. The first P.Eye prototype has been delivered to BAE Systems Bofors, the world's third largest defence company, for test integration in weapons and sensor platforms. The P.Eye Pre-series, available today, offers clients a chance to experience the capability and potential of a custom-made unit solution.
The P.Eye will be on display at Portendo's stand C76 during both days of the Counter Terror Expo. Daniel Svensson, Portendo's VP of Marketing, will give a speech on Standoff Explosives Detection to Counter the Terror Threat on Tuesday the 10th of February in connection with the Counter Terror Expo.
