Symetrica’s PVT portals in the news at WCO Forum

Symetrica’s ground-breaking performance improvements to PVT portals generated significant interest following announcement at the WCO (World Customs Organisation) Technology and Innovation Forum in Rotterdam. Symetrica’s latest radiation detection technology significantly reduces nuisance alarms at ports of entry. The patented solution combines enhanced PVT (polyvinyl-toluene) detectors with advanced spectrum processing techniques to improve performance of large-volume RPMs (Radiation Portal Monitors). Click here to read the article in the Maritime Journal about how deployment of Symetrica’s PVT RPMs at primary screening reduces nuisance alarms by 84%. Commenting on the announcement, Dr.Geraint Dermody,…

Exercising VeriFinder

The Verifinder was put through its paces days before commercial launch on exercise as part of the EDEN FP-7 Security Demonstration Project. The exercise saw the Verifinder being used for First Response against unknown devices that contained radioactive material and on the lead up to bomb disposal. Three field exercises took place across two days in the training area of the Polish Fire Service (SGSP) at Rzeszow in south eastern Poland. During the exercise Polish personnel used the Verifinder in close to real-life situations. Following operations, users commented on the tools they had…
