  • (1888PressRelease) October 18, 2013 - TRANSEC will be held at Olympia, in London, from 13 to 14 November 2013.

    CEA is a leading R&D body in the energy, defence, security and high-tech sectors and has developed a range of technologies designed for use in transport security.

    Laurent Olmedo, CEA's Global Security Research Programme Manager, explains, "We have scientific expertise in the management of risks and threats - something that is of great benefit to the authorities. The completion of a significant number of R&D projects has led to numerous technology transfers, either by providing technology-licence agreements to companies, or by founding start-ups."

    CEA will showcase three innovative solutions in CBRN-E prevention on its stand (F32) at the TRANSEC trade show, to be held in mid-November of this year at the Olympia exhibition centre, in central London. The first technology is T-REX®, an innovative detector of explosive-vapour traces. This detector constitutes a major breakthrough as conventional instruments are mostly dedicated to the detection of explosive particles.

    Secondly, CEA will present innovative solutions for first responders faced with a biological threat. Detection is operated thanks to CEA's KDTB Gold® solution, a biological immunoassay (or biochemical test) suitable for the in-the-field detection of pathogens. The decontamination of infrastructures is conducted with a separate solution, BIOGEL-Sys®. Both solutions, which have been licensed to NBC-Sys, a French CBRN/defence specialist, are intended for first-aid organisations and fire services, and are already in use in several countries.

    Finally, CEA will showcase DMS, a global-software solution that merges, in real time, data from heterogeneous systems such as video-tracking systems and multiple-technologies explosive-detection systems. This software suite is based on a central database that records, in real time, three-dimensional data and events.

    The DMS software solution also features an advanced security-operator user interface, allowing for quick operator reaction in case of an explosive-detection alert. Alerts are generated according to rules that are configured in a rules engine. It is CEA that defines the concept of operations, the algorithms for the rules engine, and the standard protocol for the connection of sub-systems to DMS. The DMS software product has been built using the Target Locker® solution from software company Egidium Technologies. Other solutions such as Event Monitor®, Smart Shield® and Swift Catch® are already available on the market.
