Universal Detection Technology Secures Beijing Olympic Contract
(Wireless News Via Acquire Media NewsEdge)
Universal Detection Technology (UDTT), a developer of early-warning
monitoring technologies to protect people from bioterrorism and other
infectious health threats and provider of counter-terrorism consulting
and training services, reported that it has received a contract to
provide radiation detection equipment for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
The devices are capable of detecting Gamma and Neutron Radiation and
are designed to provide portal protection.
The Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad
(BOCOG) is responsible for all aspects of security for the Olympics.
BOCOG plans to deploy 80,000 security personnel for the Olympics.
Liu Shaowu, the BOCOG security department director, said, "BOCOG has
finished more than 52 schemes and more than 500 specific plans for
security, transportation, fire-fighting, anti-terrorism and VIP
protection. Beijing will host safe Games." UDTT will supply equipment
that will be used for search and identification of gamma and neutron
radioactive materials. The instruments feature the capability to
identify the detected isotopes and characterize categories from
medical, industrial, natural occurring radioactive materials (NORM) and
special nuclear materials (SNM). Because of their high sensitivity,
they can be used to verify any alarm triggered by a fix-installed
monitor or by a radiation pager, to locate sources, measure radiation
levels, and even to identify the detected isotope. The instruments are
ideally suited for First Responders, Border Control, Customs
inspectors, site security in critical infrastructures, and for all
missions related to the control of nuclear materials. When used in
concert, the instruments are optimal in providing portal protection for
entrances to venues such as sports stadiums and the Olympic village.
"The contract for the Beijing Olympics is another significant milestone
for our company," said Jacques Tizabi, UDTT's Chief Executive Officer.
"We will continue to pursue clients of this caliber and prestige with
our full spectrum of CBRNE detection equipment."
The contract to supply UDTT's radiation detection equipment for the
2008 Beijing Olympics has come from F&D International.
