Metrasens Launches Proscreen 900™ Plus Threat Detection Solution

April 2, 2019

LISLE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 2, 2019--Metrasens, a leader in advanced ferromagnetic detection technologies, announced today that it will be unveiling the next generation of its mass casualty threat detection solution, Proscreen 900 Plus, at ISC West 2019 in Las Vegas. The new solution bolsters Metrasens’ impressive ferromagnetic screening product line and provides a higher level of security for stadiums, arenas, event venues, hotels, campuses and other areas where security is paramount.

Proscreen 900 Plus demonstrates Metrasens’ commitment to innovation in the security sector and focus on delivering screening and detection technology backed by rigorous weapons testing and analysis. The result is high throughput, highly effective detection of large mass casualty threat items without the burden of divestiture.

In detailed weapons testing against a series of long barreled firearms, the dual-screening methodology of Proscreen 900 Plus demonstrates an unmatched detection rate and throughput rate of 50-60 individuals screened per minute (3,000–3,600 per hour). With Proscreen 900 Plus, the screeners are placed at the outer perimeter of a facility or venue, detecting potential threats before any attacker can reach security chokepoints.

“We live in a time where security for facilities and event venues has never been more important,” said Jim Viscardi, Metrasens Vice-President of Global Security. “Proscreen 900 Plus helps mitigate the damage potential of bad actors in a mass casualty attack, and is ready to deploy today. Our goal at Metrasens is to use innovative technology to protect people as best we can. With Proscreen 900 Plus, we are taking another step forward to making the world a safer place.”

Maintaining Metrasens’ signature portability and battery-powered operation, Proscreen 900 Plus is a versatile solution for use in a wide variety of CONOPS. Customers will benefit from Metrasens’ high level of support, including site evaluations and assessments in working with partners and their business.

In addition to detection capabilities and deployment versatility, Proscreen 900 Plus offers unobtrusive integration into its surroundings so as not to disrupt the atmosphere of its environment. This feature will appeal particularly to customers where subtlety is essential in maintaining a positive guest experience.

Metrasens is a pioneer in the use of ferromagnetic detection technology in commercial products and continues to produce innovative solutions with deep expertise in ferromagnetic technology development.
