Smiths Detection's HGVI LINX, helps emergency responders in a central command center view and assess real-time chemical sensor data from deployed Handheld Gas & Vapor Identifier (HGVI) units. The software increases the effectiveness of incident response, reducing the time and resources needed to deliver critical information necessary to react appropriately to chemical and airborne threats.
The HGVI is capable of detecting, identifying and quantifying toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) and chemical warfare agents (CWAs). HGVI LINX features new advanced software algorithms, GPS functionality and RF transmission technology which enhances system capability. It is capable of displaying simultaneous data readings of up to 16 HGVI units. The live readings, as well as detailed alarm and system status information, are displayed on a single command center computer located up to one kilometer away from an incident. Information is automatically superimposed over preloaded geographic maps or building diagrams as needed by each user.
