Mr. Melvin discussed the benefits associated with the deployment of the Terrax "Theia" camera on the current security situation globally, as well as, in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq. The consensus of the senior security officials attending the conference was that the "Theia" camera would have a significant impact on the stability and security of Afghanistan and the region. The presentation and discussions with senior officials and their procurement staffs, focused on the technical aspects of how the Terrax camera uses hyperspectral imaging to identify dangerous materials at a safe distance from the security check points, thereby providing stand-off detection capability. This safe zone is of critical importance to saving lives in any security operation.
