BPSI's CBRN sensor passes 100,000 hours of operation

Building Protection Systems, Inc., has announced the achievement of more than 100,000 hours of operation of its CBRN detection technology without a single false-positive or false-negative, which has not been previously accomplished in the industry.

"The false-positive nuisance alarm problem has plagued the detection industry for decades," Greg Eiler, founder and CEO of BPSI said. "Infrastructure managers have been afraid to adopt unreliable first-generation technologies rendering millions of people unprotected from a CBRN release. Our achievement of surpassing the 100,000 operational hour milestone is a big step in encouraging more security professionals to adopt this proven solution and further strengthens BPSI's position as the recognized leader in the next generation of CBRN detection technologies."

BPSI's CBRN detection system is in use to actively and reliably protect buildings, mass transit stations, stadiums and public venues from airborne toxins.

The system detects and identifies dangerous toxins in seconds and, upon detection, automatically activates a predetermined mitigation protocol. At the same time, the system relays real-time toxin and location data to BPSI's Remote Monitoring Center, which then communicates with first responders to expedite a safe and secure recovery.

"The fact that we have eclipsed 100,000 operational hours in the field without a false alarm sets BPSI miles ahead of our competition and the government labs," Mike Welden, SVP of Homeland Security for BPSI, said. "We have a proven, reliable solution to a known vulnerability that is commercially accepted, U.S. Department of Homeland Security SAFETY Act Designated, priced right and ready to save lives."
