RAE Systems- Safer Homeland Responder.

Designed for use with RAE Systems’ AreaRAE family of wireless detectors, the SAFER Homeland Responder integrated software solution quickly measures and validates plumes generated by hazardous material releases. This turn-key system incorporates real-time atmospheric monitoring, chemical sensor data, and GPS coordinates into sophisticated algorithms to track plume impact in complex terrain.

The SAFER Homeland Responder solution is designed for use by Federal, State and Local Agency and Military Response Teams.

In the chaotic and frantic aftermath of a chemical release, time and accurate information are critically important to saving lives and resources. SAFER Homeland Responder provides this urgent information simply and quickly. Within minutes of a toxic release, the software can help manage the event and provide early warning to those who risk exposure to a potentially harmful substance. Incident commanders can make effective tactical decisions, and react appropriately to the changing situation.

Developed based on SAFER Systems technology already deployed by all Class 1 Railroads in North America as well as numerous chemical and petrochemical companies worldwide, SAFER Homeland Responder provides patented, field tested, reliable decision support.
