American Innovations participates at FPED Force Protection Equipment Demonstrations

May 19, 2009 (Stafford, VA) -
The U.S. Army Product Manager, Force Protection Systems (PM-FPS) under the sponsorship of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology & Logistics (OUSD AT&L), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Joint Staff (JS), National Institute of Justice (NIJ), National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), and Technical Support Working Group (TSWG) conducted the Force Protection Equipment Demonstrations (FPED VII) from 19-21 May 2009.

American Innovations, Inc. has been participating at FPED for the last 8 years and at this year’s event demonstrated the XD-2i Explosives Detection system. The FPED event is held only once every two years and draws members of domestic and foreign military, domestic and foreign government agencies, and defense contractors to learn about new and proven capabilities available to military and government agencies for physical security and force protection.

Attendees from around the globe saw the XD-2i explosives detector go through its paces, detecting all commercial, military and homemade explosives, trace and bulk. Those attendees also learned about how it is even lighter, faster and more capable than when the XD-2i was first introduced at FPED VI. All who viewed demonstrations were invited to challenge the system with any articles they chose; leaving impressed with the capabilities of this small device with broad explosives detection and identification capabilities.

Much attention was derived from the ability of the XD-2i Portable Explosives Detector to detect the full spectrum of commercial, military and homemade improvised explosives in a single test, especially from those who had experience with other types of explosives detection technology.

American Innovations has been fielding inquiries and providing proposals to government and military contacts, both domestic and allied, since the FPED meeting and units have been shipped for use in theatre and at commands around the world. The XD-2i will continue to expand its presence and impact on the Counter IED fight wherever it is needed, and looks forward to participating at future FPED conferences.
