| Portendo spoke at the EASC 2009 about the benefits and advantages of threat detection equipment|
Portendo, leaders in standoff threat detection equipment, discussed the benefits and advantages of their range of threat detection equipment for the homeland security, military and commercial security industries, at EASC09 - The European Atlantic Stakeholder Conference, in Stockholm, Sweden.
Portendos' technology based on "Raman Spectroscopy", fingerprints a wide range of compounds through their specific chemical signatures, and provides trace detection and distinction of most explosive compounds wherever they may be hidden, be that in vehicles, containers or baggage.
The Portendo P.Eye-S is based on technology originating from the Swedish FOI (Swedish Defence Research Agency). By targeting the surface of a suspicious object the P.Eye-S can detect traces of explosives of less than 100 micrograms. The resulting information is simple to read and enables the security professional to interpret the information quickly, efficiently and safely, negating the need for costly training of staff, down time of the venue, or threat to personnel.
