SAN JOSE, CA – March 9, 2010 – RAE Systems Inc. (NYSE Amex: RAE), a leader in delivering innovative sensor solutions that provide safety and security from unseen threats in industrial, energy, environmental and government markets worldwide, today announced its leading wireless atmospheric gas and radiation detection systems helped keep thousands of attendees safe and secure at recent major sporting events, including the Super Bowl XLIV championship game of the National Football League (NFL), the National Basketball Association (NBA) All Star Game and the XXI Olympic Winter Games.
RAE Systems' wireless-enabled AreaRAE, multi-gas and radiation, detection systems that provide real-time remote monitoring and a photoionization detector (PID) for parts-per-million measurements, were used at these events as early warning systems for public-safety threats, such as a dirty bomb or the release of toxic chemicals.
"We are proud of our track record in being selected to provide monitoring system for key public events," said Bill Jackson, RAE Systems vice president of marketing. "We have a long history of delivering time-critical and life-critical information. Our wireless systems have become the first choice in providing situational awareness to federal, state and local incident commanders. RAE Systems AreaRAE wireless monitors have become the deployment standard for public venue protection."
Remote monitoring provides a key advancement by allowing security and safety monitors, along with response teams, to monitor the venue from up to 2 miles (3.2km) away. It uses the Internet to communicate and transmit information in real time to remote experts as needed. Wireless systems also offer rapid deployment, and quick and easy setup.
The AreaRAE wireless multi-gas detection system provides detection for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and comes with a lower explosive limit combustible gas sensor, an oxygen sensor and two electrochemical toxic sensors to measure specific toxic substances, such as chlorine and hydrogen cyanide. The AreaRAE Gamma wireless integrated radiation and hazardous-gas detection system includes a gamma sensor for measurement of gamma radiation in addition to VOC detection, LEL and O2 sensors, and a selectable electrochemical toxic sensor.
