AIRSENSE Analytics GmbH

To ensure the maximum possible security for the public with regard to critical infrastructures, AIRSENSE Analytics GmbH develops highly specialised detectors for dangerous substances.
For a number of years now, AIRSENSE has been producing an equipment portfolio aimed at guaranteeing the safety and security of participants and visitors alike, particularly during such major events.
Our patented inventions have won many awards and distinctions as well. The instruments, produced in Germany, are used in the areas of disaster protection, public safety and aerospace, as well as logistics and the environment, to deal with CBRNE threats.
Thanks to the patented combination of four different sensor technologies, it is now possible to use only one mobile gas detector to sniff out all kinds of hazardous and dangerous substances with the aid of chemical-physical reactions. This relates in particular to toxic or gaseous substances which have toxic effects even at low concentrations, explosive substances, weapons-grade materials, and radioactive material. Our safety and security equipment can warn and protect the staff and the visitors at major events of impending risks, thus creating a particularly high level of safety. These units can detect and identify threatening substances and materials within seconds when checking of individual persons or sensitive locations.
The Gas Detector for Explosive Substances (GDA-X) is an advanced development of the GDA2 (Gas Detector Array), which, as well as the more conventional toxic effect industrial chemicals and weapons-grade materials, can also detect explosives.
Based on the original version of the GDA2, there are now a number of innovative further developments for special applications. These include a stationary version for constant monitoring at a fixed location, in government buildings or infrastructure facilities such as underground railway stations, or fitted with a lance for preliminary checking of import containers with regard to gasification agent residues to provide safety for customs officers and port workers.
A newcomer in the AIRSENSE range is the unique mobile warfare agent detector, developed especially for the protection of personnel. This can be optionally fitted with additional sensor elements, allowing for more substances to be identified which might have been missed by earlier detectors. This is particularly important when it comes to combating terrorist organisations, or if the response forces are also charged with civilian tasks. Quality, reliable long-lasting operation, with high sensitivity and low false-alarm rate.
Significant reference clients are, among others, the Brazilian security authorities, both civilian and military, who used gas detectors from AIRSENSE to protect the FIFA World Cup in 2014.
Safety technology from AIRSENSE has proved its worth in the past, tried and trusted at a whole range of major events such as the Turin Olympics, the World Cup in Germany, the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm, and EU Council Presidency gatherings.

The applications which can be covered range from ambient air monitoring, process monitoring, stack monitoring to semiconductor and safety at work application to the detection of Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA) in homeland security.
The trace gas analyzers of IUT Medical will also find applications in food control, particularly of quality inspection, as well as in the medical field. It should be mentioned that the analysis of exhaled breath in patients who have markers compounds can be identified that provide early information about any diseases, but also information about possible exposure of hazardous substances has been exposed to the patient. The analysis of perspiration can provide information about the effectiveness of medicaments, as well as statements about any drug consumption or doping in professional sports field, are another area of application. Mold detection particularly for the hidden architectural structures indoors also provide as risks to health and can already be detected early with the trace gas analyzers. This possibility of early identification of mold, but also of decay caused by bacteria, can be transferred to the food industry. Here is the storage of grain, potatoes, onions and other foods mentioned, in which at early detection appropriate action can be taken to minimize the damage.
The main technologies for the high sensitive detection and identification base on Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) and Photo Ionization as Photo Ionization Detector (PID). These technologies are even coupled to gas-chromatographic column (GC) to GC-IMS and GC-PID systems. All these technologies which has been developed by IUT/IUT Medical, offer high sensitivities in the lower ppb-range, especially with the combination of GC columns for the enhancement of the selectivity with IMS and PID sensor.

Lachen Helfen e.V.

Deutsche Soldaten und Polizisten beteiligen sich seit 1989 an friedensichernden und friedenerhaltenden Einsätzen internationaler Organisationen. Seitdem erleben sie in den Krisen- und Konfliktgebieten dieser Welt hautnah das teilweise unbeschreibliche Elend der betroffenen Kinder.
Im ehemaligen Jugoslawien beschlossen Bundeswehrsoldaten Anfang der 90er Jahre, sich neben ihren dienstlichen Aufgaben auch privat mit humanitären Projekten für Kinder zu engagieren. Neben Brennholz und Bekleidung schenkten sie ihnen auch Plüschbären in der Hoffnung, dass sie ihr Lachen zurückgewinnen. Um den traumatisierten, verwundeten oder elternlosen Kindern auch dauerhaft, schnell und unbürokratisch zu helfen, gründeten sie 1996 einen gemeinnützigen Verein.

NATO WMD Non-Proliferation Centre and NATO Counter Terrorism Section

NATO’s Strategic Concept made clear that the proliferation of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and their delivery systems, could have incalculable consequences for global stability and prosperity. During the next decade, proliferation will be most acute in some of the world’s most volatile regions. A WMD Non-Proliferation Centre at NATO Headquarters is strengthening dialogue among Allies, assessing risks and supporting defence efforts to improve Alliance preparedness to respond to the use of WMD or chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) agents.
NATO’s work on counter-terrorism focuses on improving threat awareness and preparedness, developing adequate capabilities and enhancing engagement with partner countries and other international actors. The Alliance’s Defence Against Terrorism Programme of Work (DAT POW) is focused on short term capability development in order to prevent non-conventional attacks, such as suicide attacks with improvised explosive devices (IEDs), and mitigate other challenges, such as attacks on critical infrastructure or threats posed by WMD.
