RAE Systems Enables Remote Access to Real-Time Gas, Radiation, Biometric Data to Enhance Responder Safety and Reduce Incident Response Times

ProRAE Guardian Real-Time Wireless Safety System Delivers Time-Critical Data on Toxic and Flammable Gases, Chemical Warfare Agents, Radiation, and Responders' Physiological Condition and Location

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK--(Marketwire - Jun 7, 2012) - RAE Systems, the leader in connected gas and radiation detection solutions, today announced its ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System for emergency responder, military and national security customers in Europe. The Wireless Safety System delivers real-time data on toxic gases and radiation combined with meteorological information and the physiological status and location of emergency responders.

The ProRAE Guardian System helps reduce incident response times and enhance safety in a broad range of applications including: HazMat and emergency response, CBRNe agent detection (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive), national security, police, bomb disposal, public venue protection and fire service.

The new ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System provides unsurpassed responder safety and helps emergency responders better protect communities and ensure hazardous materials regulation compliance.

Real-time Information is Critical for Emergency Responders
When disaster strikes, incident commanders are tasked with making critical, split-second decisions. RAE Systems' ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System allows first responders to set up a rapidly deployable, secure wireless threat detection system that encompasses a broad range of RAE Systems' and approved third-party personal, survey and area monitors to detect and track:

  • Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs/TIMs)
  • Flammable gases
  • Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA)
  • Radiation
  • Meteorological conditions
  • GPS-based location information
  • Physiological condition of responders

ProRAE Guardian Wireless Safety System Delivers a Real-time Mobile Command Center
The ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System facilitates faster, data-driven decision-making that helps responders save lives and assets. Situational data obtained by multiple responder teams can be instantaneously shared securely through the Internet to aid mission control, simplify the coordination of joint operations and allow remote experts to be added to the operation in real time.

The RAE Systems ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System now supports the company's portable ToxiRAE Pro single-gas monitors, MultiRAE multi-threat detectors, GammaRAE II R radiation detectors, AreaRAE transportable multi-gas and radiation instruments, BioHarness biometric devices and approved third-party instruments. This further enhances the scope of connected threat detection tools available to emergency responders and CBRNe community.

RAE Systems' wireless monitors automatically transmit real-time sensor data and alarms to ProRAE Guardian. This allows emergency responders to focus on their jobs and eliminate the need to report readings over the radio. The System also provides incident commanders an objective picture of a responder's physiological condition. ProRAE Guardian is compatible with optional PlumeRAE plume modeling and HazRAE hazardous material decision-support software to increase public and emergency responder safety. Every instrument that is part of the ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System has been certified as suitable for use in ATEX / IECEx Zone 1 and CSA Class I, Division 1 hazardous locations.

"Real-time remote access to incident information should be a necessary safety component of HazMat response and CBRNe detection operations," stated Thomas Negre, Vice President of Products and Marketing for RAE Systems. "RAE Systems has been leading the way in wireless gas and radiation detection for more than a decade. The company has delivered proven solutions to the emergency responder and CBRNe communities for remote monitoring of threat data in real time for faster decision-making."

The ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System for first responders and all supported monitors will be shipping from Copenhagen on June 30, 2012. Orders will be accepted through authorized RAE Systems distributors starting June 18, 2012. Customers interested in additional information or purchasing the ProRAE Guardian Real-time Wireless Safety System should contact RAE Systems' local distributor or their regional sales manager. Phase two of the company's wireless safety system development will target industrial safety applications.
