Smiths Detection To Help Safeguard Teams, Staff And Visitors At Super Bowlâ„¢ XLVIII

Smiths Detection was awarded a contract by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to help provide security at Super Bowlâ„¢ XLVIII in East Rutherford, NJ on Sunday, 2 February.

Smiths Detection technologies will be featured as part of a layered security framework to help protect teams, staff, and visitors at the Super Bowl from a broad range of potential threats. The systems include handheld Multi-Mode Treat Detectors (MMTD) and SABRE 5000 units, both used to detect trace amounts of hazardous materials in the air, including explosives and toxic industrial chemicals.

Lance Roncalli, Managing Director, Americas, for Smiths Detection, said: "The Super Bowl is one of the most high-profile events in the world and our advanced threat detection technologies will play a critical role in helping security personnel keep everyone safe. Our systems are already used to secure many similar U.S. venues, and being chosen for this iconic game is a particular source of pride for us."

MMTD is a rugged, handheld device used in harsh environments for the rapid detection and identification of explosives, narcotics, toxic industrial chemicals and chemical warfare agents. For Multi- Mode Threat Detector technical specifications, please click here.
