RAE Systems and Rosenbauer to CollaborateAugust 11, 2010
The two companies will develop a trailblazing system for firefighters by integrating the AreaRAE wireless gas- and radiation-sensor system into HazMat response trucks to improve operations management.
SAN JOSE, CA /Marketwire/ -- RAE Systems Inc. announced that Rosenbauer International AG, the "world's largest manufacturer of fire trucks and firefighting equipment," will integrate RAE Systems' ATEX-approved AreaRAE Steel, wireless gas- and radiation-sensor system, into its line of hazardous-material (HazMat) response trucks in Europe. RAE Systems, headquartered in San Jose, CA, is a leader in delivering innovative sensor solutions to serve industrial, energy, environmental, and government safety markets worldwide.
Called the EMEREC information management system from Rosenbauer, the system provides advanced, wireless, toxic gas, and radiation detection technology that links rapidly deployable AreaRAE sensors to a centralized database to give first responders and incident commanders new capabilities, such as access to up-to-date and relevant information directly at the incident scene and seamlessly share critical information with other units to facilitate real-time collaboration.
"Rosenbauer's EMEREC is the result of extensive collaboration that leverages our AreaRAE system to provide real-time, reliable, and sustainable sensor data and alarm status to anywhere at anytime," said Chris Hameister, Vice President of European Operations for RAE Systems. "EMEREC is a remarkable solution that easily provides situation-specific information at the incident location as it is needed, and we are proud to be part of the effort."
RAE Systems' AreaRAE is a ruggedized wireless multi-gas monitor that can be used to quickly establish an incident perimeter and allow first responders to monitor readings from up to 3 kilometers (about 1.5 miles) away. A built-in radio-frequency modem transmits real-time gas measurement data to a command center for up to eight AreaRAE or AreaRAE-compatible monitors, providing a multi-threat detection network that can monitor wide geographic areas. AreaRAE is available individually or as part of a pre-configured rapid deployment kit package.
