MX908 Beacon quickly identifies harmful levels of chemical warfare and pharmaceutical-based agents, empowering swift response and remediation
908 Devices today announced the launch of a unique remote area monitoring system, the MX908 Beacon, that can detect and identify aerosolized and vapor threats. Beacon monitors the air for the most toxic substances, including fentanyl and Novichok nerve agents.
The Beacon’s area monitoring capabilities enable remote and continuous operation with more than eight hours of battery life and 16 hours of standby time.
“Leveraging the MX908 high pressure mass spectrometer and the Aero module, Beacon’s cloud-based solution empowers intelligence gathering remotely while ensuring greater safety for the public and responders at large events or at key infrastructure.”
The the MX908 Beacon can be used for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) operations and decontamination line monitoring; as a turnkey vehicle mounted system; and for clandestine lab dismantling operations.
The MX908 Beacon can be used individually or integrated with other Beacons for widespread area coverage, and can be engaged, controlled and monitored through a portal accessed through any phone, laptop or mobile device.
“Following the groundbreaking launch of the MX908 with Aero, our customers expressed a need for more remote and continuous monitoring of aerosolized threats for a variety of applications – from hazmat area monitoring to large event protection to VIP security,” said John Kenneweg, Vice President of Government, 908 Devices. “With the MX908 Beacon, we’re addressing those needs and ensuring public safety by empowering first responders with knowledge of their environment so they can take swift and appropriate action.”
MX908 Beacon is secured in an inconspicuous, rugged case for environmental protection and thermal management. A custom grommet directs airflow, ensuring effective sample collection. The MX908 Beacon Portal is only accessible with a unique session ID, which enables remote access for operators to begin or stop analysis and monitor results. Sessions can be easily shared with other stakeholders, regardless of their location, with a single URL.
