ChemImage Sensor Systems Announces VeroVision Detection System as Recipient of Prestigious Award for Technology Innovation


December 8, 2016 - ChemImage Sensor Systems (CISS) announces that its VeroVisionâ„¢ portable shortwave infrared (SWIR) hyperspectral imaging detection system received a Platinum 2016 Technology Innovation Award from Military & Aerospace Electronics and Intelligent Aerospace publications. The Platinum award recognizes companies that offer the highest level of military, aerospace and avionics product design solutions. Selections are made based on the recommendations of an independent panel of industry judges.

“We are honored to receive this major award and pleased to see that the power of SWIR hyperspectral imaging for threat detection is being realized by the military and aerospace communities”, said Steven Mitts, CISS Product Line Director. “The VeroVision™ platform has enabled the standoff detection of explosive, drug and chemical threats; we hope that this award will allow us to reach a broader base of potential applications.”

Illicit drugs that are concealed and smuggled into prisons is one of the more costly issues facing correctional facilities. The sale and use of illicit substances by inmates contributes to increased violence and heightened medical costs. The VeroVision Mail Screener was designed to address drug detection at one of the common points of entry for drug contraband: the correctional facility mail room. The system provides easy objective, one-click drug detection in less than 10 seconds. The Mail Screener can detect a number of illicit drugs and common cutting agents concealed on or within envelopes and paper, under stamps and stickers, and even mixed with crayon, markers or paint.

“This award is a credit to the innovation of our dedicated men and women who developed the VeroVision™ hardware and software and are providing support for critical threat detection applications that make the world healthier and safer”, stated ChemImage Chief Operating Officer John Belechak.
