FLIR Systems details products used during CRBNE incident response

Thermal imaging company FLIR Systems recently detailed its approach to CBRNE incidents.

FLIR Systems uses a systems-based approach to combat CBRNE incidents from before they occur to the cleanup phase. The company approaches the different stages of an incident with specific sets of capabilities, Government Security News reports.

FLIR Systems enhanced screening operations through the use of its Griffin 824 confirmatory mass spectrometer, which can detect agents with more reliability than existing ion-mobility spectrometry. The company also developed the Fido X3 explosive trace detector and the identiFINDER R-serie to prevent CBRNE attacks, according to Government Security News.

The Fido B2 and Fido C3 are FLIR's continuous air monitors to detect CBRNE agents after they have been released. The Fido C3 can be used in high profile buildings, event venues and public transportation facilities to provide protection from long-term, low-level exposure to chemical hazards, while the B2 is a fully automated biological agent detector and alarm.

The Fido C2 product from FLIR can be used for cleanup operations after a CBRNE incident. The spray reveals contamination after being applied to a surface. FLIR Systems also developed the Griffin 460, which provides on-site forensic analysis, Government Security News reports.
