Energy storage (is expected) to generate $500 million to $1 billion in annual revenue by 2020." --Bloomberg News Grid-Scale Energy Storage – Examining Increased Reliability,Performance, and Competitiveness of Large Scale Storage Systems Phone: 414.221.1700 • Maryland, company that specializes in the "cross-science area of biological olfaction and scent detection," said David Adebimpe, CEO of Polymath and ScentLogix. "The K-9 Explosives Scent Training Imprint Aids and Kits and other training tools are based on a convergent science approach that uses the olfactory prowess of canines as the underpinnings of foundational R&D investigations in biological olfaction and olfaction-based detection." In April, Tripwire partnered with Falcon Tactical Solutions, a Beernem, Belgium-based supplier of tactical equipment and training for European military and police units, to demonstrate the Secotron interactive, smart target system. Used by military and law enforcement units in Europe, the system can be programmed for various training scenarios, according to Jean Nicodeme of Falcon. Smart targets can be used for training in a shoot house; CQB, (close quarters battle); or indoors or outdoors. It is a portable, easy to use, system. Designed to train police and military personnel to be alert to their surroundings, the smart targets can be used in tandem with simulated explosions, changes in ambient light and other environmental factors. An instructor has the ability to change the target responses at any time during a training session. Tripwire is now licensed to manufacture and market the Secotron system in the U.S., said Morris. "Our training constantly evolves to meet the needs of the specific target audience to which it is being presented and provides the most up to date information in all chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, explosive (CBRNE) disciplines," Morris said. "Working with explosives is inherently dangerous work, whether you're a K-9 handler, bomb technician or other first responder. You need an unparalleled degree of professionalism in order to deal with conventional and homemade explosives." This container contains samples of non-volatile explosive scent training kits used to train bomb- detection dogs. (Jeffrey B. Roth)
