Washington, DC, June 08, 2011 –(PR.com)– In a move that will greatly improve national security efforts to stop suicide bombers, Thermal Matrix USA is announcing a new program that can equip domestic law enforcement and military agencies with life saving bomb detection, at a fraction of the cost of a complete system.

Thermal Matrix USA is an industry leader in research and product development of technology that can detect person-borne improvised explosive devices (PBIEDs) at safe standoff distances. With increased acts of terror overseas, its ACT (Access Counter IED Technology) system is currently in great demand. ACT detects hidden plastic, liquid, powder and gel explosives long before a terrorist is able to reach his intended target. A key component of the system is an infrared sensor, such as those manufactured by FLIR, which are already in use in many security applications.
