Atlanta-based Salto Systems, Inc., uses RFID read/write technology to provide most of the features of an online locking system in an off-line system, saving expensive wiring and RF backbone costs. Because the system utilizes the latest in RFID technology, the “key” to a guest room no longer needs to be a flat piece of plastic. Doors can be opened with a watch, a cell phone, a key chain, or other item. Hotels can eliminate the plastic key-card waste by giving guests a reusable key fob made of virtually any material. This feature reduces operating costs while protecting the environment. The company’s i-Locker units can be retrofitted into most existing lockers, offering the same security features that its door units have—an extensive audit trail, integration with point-of-sale and property-management systems, as well as exclusive Salto Virtual Network remote communication and monitoring.

The HPRID is a hand-held, portable, rugged, and highly accurate radioisotope detector and identifier from Smiths Detection of Pine Branch, New Jersey. It uses Symetrica’s Discovery technology under an exclusive license. Discovery technology features advanced spectrum processing and identification algorithms that transform a highly sensitive sodium-iodide detector into a high-resolution spectrometer capable of identifying challenging isotopes. It can be used in “survey” mode to detect radioactive sources and identify whether the energy signature corresponds to harmless naturally occurring radiation or a more dangerous source. For each source identified, the device provides the identification, confidence level of the identification, and a risk assessment describing the source as innocent, suspicious, or threatening.
