The release of this video precedes a May 9 press conference announcing the availability of HG_Flow in the United States.
Albany, NY (PRWEB) May 04, 2012
HyGie-Tech USA, the primary sponsor of the CBRN Resource Network, has released a video produced by British broadcaster ITN showing how HyGie-Tech USA’s HG_Flow software can help address the threat of airborne contaminants in a chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) attack and support the protection of critical infrastructure.
As this video explains, HG_Flow models airflow patterns precisely to predict where hazardous particulates will land. Facilities managers, first responders, and law enforcement agencies can then work pro-actively to mitigate risk and protect lives and property.
Modeling Anthrax Attacks
By modeling the potential of an anthrax attack on a shopping center, for example, HG_Flow can predict how airborne anthrax spores will be dispersed – and which shoppers and employees might be affected. The software's database of 13,000 toxic products spans microbiology, virology, and chemistry, and also covers radiological particulates that domestic or international terrorists could use in a CBRN attack. By simulating up to 20 different attacks in the same building, the software helps to inform personnel on methods for protecting critical infrastructure across a broad spectrum of threats.
No Supercomputer Required
This video also explains how HG_Flow works with a 3D laser scanner to create powerful, visual displays of indoor airflow and the diffusion modes of gaseous or aerosol contaminants. Unlike other types of predictive modeling and simulation software, HG_Flow doesn’t require a supercomputer. Armed with just a MacBook Pro computer, users can identify risk management solutions that save time and money.
About the Video
Produced by ITN, this HG_Flow video features interviews with (in order of appearance): HyGie-Tech USA CEO Robert L. Domenici, HyGie-Tech USA Product Manager Alan M. Evans, HyGie-Tech SA CEO Raymond Andrieu, and former London Metropolitan Police Officer Steve Swain.
The release of this video comes just days before HyGie-Tech SA of Lausanne, Switzerland and HyGie-Tech USA of Albany, NY (USA) will announce the U.S. release of HG_Flow software at a press conference at the RPI Tech Park (Pat's Barn Conference and Event Center). The media is invited to attend this important event, which begins at 11 AM with refreshments and networking session to follow.
