Metrasens, a leader in advanced ferromagnetic detection technologies, and a Platinum Winner in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, launched the company’s next generation mass casualty threat detection solution, the Proscreen 900 Plus, at ISC West 2019 in Las Vegas.
This new solution bolsters Metrasens’ impressive ferromagnetic screening product line and provides a higher level of security options for stadiums, arenas, event venues, hotels, campuses and other areas where security is paramount.
Proscreen 900 Plus signifies Metrasens’ commitment to innovation in the security sector and the company’s focus on delivering screening and detection technology which is backed by rigorous weapons testing and analysis.
The result is high throughput, highly effective detection of large mass casualty threat items without the burden of divestiture.
In detailed weapons testing against a series of long barreled firearms, Proscreen 900 Plus’ dual-screening methodology demonstrates an unmatched detection rate and throughput rate of 50-60 individuals screened per minute (3,000–3,600 per hour).
With Proscreen 900 Plus, screeners can be placed at the outer perimeter of a facility or venue, with the capability to detect potential threats prior to an attacker having the opportunity to reach security checkpoints.
“We live in a time where security for facilities and event venues has never been more important,” explains Jim Viscardi, MetrasensVice-President of Global Security.
“Proscreen 900 Plus helps mitigate the damage potential of bad actors in a mass casualty attack, and is ready to deploy today.”
“Our goal at Metrasens is to use innovative technology to protect people as best we can.”
“With Proscreen 900 Plus, we are taking another step forward to making the world a safer place.”
Maintaining Metrasens’ signature portability and battery-powered operation, Proscreen 900 Plus is a versatile solution for use in a wide variety of concept of operations (CONOPS).
Customers will benefit from Metrasens’ high level of support, including site evaluations and assessments in working with partners and their business.
In addition to detection capabilities and deployment versatility, Proscreen 900 Plus offers unobtrusive integration into its surroundings so as not to disrupt the atmosphere of its environment.
This feature will appeal particularly to customers where subtlety is essential in maintaining a positive guest experience.
