American Security Today has announced the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award’ winners for outstanding product development achievements and exciting new technologies that address the growing Homeland Security Threats our Nation is facing. Two FLIR Detection & Security products were recognized with Platinum and Gold awards for distinguished excellence and supporting the safety efforts of law enforcement, first responders, IT and port security.
The Platinum Award for Best CBRNE Detection System goes to FLIR’s new FLIR Griffin G510 Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS), a groundbreaking chemical analysis tool to aid responders in the field. Announced in June 2017, the FLIR Griffin G510 is a versatile, hand-portable chemical identifier that enables responders to analyze all phases of matter (liquid, solid, vapor), and identify vapor-phase chemical threats within seconds.
FLIR PRIMED (Prepare, Recognize, Input, Monitor, Experience, Decision), an online CBRNE training video series, launched earlier this year, achieved the Gold Award for Best Homeland Security Education Program. The new educational resource is a free, online tool that provides First Responders with best practices for HAZMAT accidents and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and/or Explosives (CBRNE) attacks.
FLIR’s best-in-class detection products progressively enable coordinated emergency response between law enforcement, firefighters and HAZMAT teams across the country in an effort to keep our nation safe.
