Allen-Vanguard: Interactive ROV demo at CBW Symposium

Allen-Vanguard
: 29 March, 2007  (Company News)
Allen-Vanguard, the internal security specialist, is staging a live demonstration at the Symposium Against Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents in May to illustrate the phases of action and the role of ROVs in CBRN situations.
A BombTec Defender EOD robot will be sent to a separate location to inspect a 'suspect package' containing a harmless chemical substance, allowing delegates to see ROVTrack wireless CBRN sensor software in action. Video images from the robot and data from the chemical sensor will be transmitted back to the command console enabling a hazard area to be identified, and the audience will be invited to take part in the decision making process surrounding a response to the incident.

Dave Norton, ROV product specialist at Allen-Vanguard will be orchestrating the demonstration. He explains: 'The delegates will be able to see first-hand how ROVTrack software can aid decision making during the critical 'golden hour' when responders have to make split second, life and death decisions. It is well known that the use of robots significantly reduces the risk to Responders in an EOD situation, but advances in technology mean that they are now highly sophisticated and play an integral role in CBRN incident management.

'As well as detecting CBRN agents using four sensors, a Defender can monitor prevailing meteorological conditions and quickly calculate templates for an initial cordon as well as safe entry routes for First Responders. The communications capabilities mean information can also be transmitted to higher command in real-time. At last year's symposium we had many requests for a demonstration of the Defender's capabilities, so I'm sure this session will be a huge success.'

The demonstration will take place Thursday 24 May at 1500 hours.
