Comprehensive Decision Support Tools Enable Rapid Insight
A new release of HazMasterG3, from California-based Alluviam, adds an adaptive, mission-specific user interface for chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives (CBRNE) applications, the company announced on 19 September.
Changing mission requirements, from responding to improvised warfare agent contamination in Syria, to site exploitation of clandestine labs or responding to hazmat incidents, all require unique tools and techniques for successful prosecution. With HazMasterG3’s new release, the system can rapidly adapt to these and other situations by dynamically adapting the user interface to meet the needs of any mission scenario. As an unfolding operational mission changes, the user interface rapidly adapts to the changing requirements with just a few taps. Whether responding to fentanyl or other suspected opioid exposures, identifying home-made explosive (HME) formulations, or accessing the latest decontamination and neutralisation guidance, only HazMasterG3 has an adaptable set of decision support tools and accredited guidance to quickly and easily handle these situations. HazMasterG3’s comprehensive set of decision support tools provide the “so what does that mean?” insights into complex scenarios, all built upon a database of over 167,000 materials and trade names.
Advancing the state-of-the-art, HazMasterG3 can now identify the potential presence of hidden gases when using its new electro-chemical (EC) cross-sensitivity analysis tool for sensors made by Draeger, MSA, RAE/Honeywell or ISC Corporation – for their entire range of EC sensors. This advanced tool is only available in HazMasterG3, and is currently deployed with the US military to better identify threats and protect military responders.
Building on HazMasterG3’s comprehensive HME analytics, the company has incorporated additional formulations the system can identify and production yields that can be estimated. In use at national HME training centres for over a decade, HazMasterG3 has a proven track record of providing key insights into the identification of HME and is deployed with civilian bomb squads and military explosive ordnance disposal teams globally. The system currently tracks over 30,000 materials and trade names that are known dual-use precursors – more than any other system. Those who manufacture HME may also be more than willing to repurpose illicitly obtained ordnance: this release therefore includes an expanded ordnance database with more former Warsaw Pact and ISIS improvised munitions. HazMasterG3 is the only available app that can perform a broad range of HME and ordnance identification on a mobile device without requiring any internet or other remote access.
