he United States has developed the Office of Homeland Security to meet ongoing terrorist threats. The government is acutely aware of the need to enhance the nation’s ability to respond to terrorist use of chemical weapons. Avir meets this need. End users will benefit from real time, user-friendly data for mitigation protocols or decision-making. The costs of not having this capability will be measured in hundreds of lives and hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage.
The sensing industry has historically focused on complicated sensors that trade ease-of-use and portability for larger size, complex, costly systems. These devices require high level training to operate and suffer from limited portability. They are suitable mostly for command level analysis.
The types of in-situ sensors available for individual use are point-of-contact sensors that react to exposure to the chemical agent.
The TOVA™ sensor uses fewer components to simplify technology than US alternatives.
Packageable as a hand-held device, unattended sensor, remote imager and more.
Meets or exceeds military standards for sensitivity.
Safe & environmentally acceptable.
The TOVA™ sensor can detect simultaneously up to 12 agents and 40 interferents and their specific background effects.
Typical configuration weighs less than a laptop.
Easy to use and to interpret the results.
