Aimed toward addressing increasing homeland security threats, American Security Today annually honors ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards’ winners for outstanding product development achievements and exciting new technologies. For 2016, it is with great pride and honor to announce FLIR’s achievements across two product award categories, noting three FLIR Detection products in distinguished excellence, and assisting the outstanding safety efforts of law enforcement, first responders, IT and port security.
Most notably, FLIR’s identiFINDER R200 achieved the Gold Award for Best CBRNE Detection System. With clear user interface and simple data presentation common to all identiFINDER products, the FLIR identiFINDER R200 allows for quick integration with existing operational protocols, reducing the training burden and allowing more time dedicated toward keeping our nation safe.
Also within the CBRNE Detection System category, the FLIR identiFINDER R100, our smallest radiation detector for first responders, took the Platinum Award. The FLIR Fido X2 received the Platinum Award for Best Investigation/Surveillance/Detection Product, offering high-performance, handheld explosives trace detection and armed with our award-winning TrueTrace® technology for superior detection assistance.
FLIR’s best-in-class detection products progressively enable coordinated emergency response between law enforcement, firefighters and HAZMAT teams across the country in an effort to keep our nation safe. We strive toward providing better protection against emerging and evolving threats through our product innovations, and as we continue to innovate, we venture to maintain the award-winning momentum reflected in FLIR’s suite of products for front-line first responders.
