team brings an interoperability solution for critical events, critical
infrastructure, and large area coverage using multiple sensor packages,
NIMS standards compliance communication, efficient networking, and vital
situation awareness tools like plume modeling. The already functioning
system allows real time monitoring from multiple sensor locations via
internet connection from anywhere in the world. Some of the benefits
include the ability to set up local Wi-Fi networks of sensors for critical
event coverage within a couple of hours, ability to utilize cellular
networks, common look and feel to application displays of detector
readings, exporting of data through CAP standards, monitor live meters from
a control room, automatic warnings/alerts of sensor triggers and
elimination of voice transmission of sensor alarms. The Vialogy Sensor
Policy Manager (SPM) integrates all elements of a large or small multiple
sensor network to collect, correlate, and analyze numerous data points in

About Fuel Right
Fuel Right sludge-control products (EP, 6000, 7500, Summer Diesel, Winter
Diesel) inhibit the formation of sludge in clean systems and slowly break
down existing sludge in fouled systems. The things released in this process
pass harmlessly through the system and burn as fuel. If there is free
condensed water in a system, Fuel Right treats it with a fuel antifreeze,
protecting against fuel system freeze-ups in the winter months. Most
importantly, Fuel Right coats steel surfaces in your system, protecting
them against corrosion from the combined effects of moisture and
Laboratory tests have shown that Fuel Right is uniquely effective in
protecting fuel systems against the ravages of fuel contamination. To learn
more about these test results, go to See The Results
