HSS Development, a New York based counter terrorist and defence manufacturing firm, released their highly-anticipated upgrade of their bomb detection line, the RDS500. The RDS500 is a covert remote controlled and monitored walk-by bomb and weapons detection system which can be installed into any type of custom casing or discreet enclosure for clandestine operation.
Sensor-based bomb detection
It is a sensor based bomb detector used by police, EOD teams, and counter terrorist forces who deal with terror attacks by suicide bombers and criminal terrorist groups. Concealed person borne IED threats and other weapons are also detectable in range of the RDS500 sensor technology.
The RDS500 main operating principle is its ability to remotely and safely scan people in range, enabling the operator to discriminate between a person carrying metallic objects such as shrapnel and who is not. It may also be operated in a remote manner and the graphic user interface can be hardwired or wireless, reducing the exposure of the operator to each person scanned.
“Every week a criminal or terrorist sets off an explosion looking to maximise death and destruction”
The system can be placed covertly into discreet enclosure options or built into drywall, hallway wall board, pylon or bollard cones, other passive housings or overtly built into free-standing units and powered by either AC or DC battery; the end user has the freedom to increase or decrease sensitivity based on their unique environment. HSS Development states they are ideal for any important entrance, be it an approach to an airport, the entry way of an embassy or consulate or even as basic as the doors to public theatres, stadiums for even shopping malls.
“Every week a criminal or terrorist sets off an explosion looking to maximise death and destruction. What if there was something you could do about it? Now there is. This is a terrorist trap to keep civilians, soft targets, armed forces, and public and private institutions safe from suicide bombers, criminals and terrorists carrying bombs and concealed weapons looking to detonate in a crowded area or targeted building of importance, such as a consulate or embassy,” states Joe Porter, VP of Counter Terrorist Solutions.
