2018 DSA Events List
DSA Detection is proud to be the Gold Sponsor for the International Symposium on the Analysis and Detection of Explosives (ISADE) in Oxford, United Kingdom. Highly-respected experts from around the world will be attending for the purpose of discussing current research in counterterrorism technologies. DSA Detection will be leading the topic of “Simulants for Advanced Threat Detection in Cabinet and Computed Tomography X-Ray Machines”.
The numerous recent mail threat attacks have raised awareness about the importance of being prepared to detect and respond to mail Improvised Explosive Device (IED) threats. The best method for screening mail is to use an X-ray system. Some locations use a small portable mail metal detector scanner that can be less costly. Other locations additionally deploy explosive trace detection systems that can detect if a package has been contaminated with explosives.
DSA Detection, a global leader in Checkpoint Security Training for advanced detection of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and all instruments utilized at Security Checkpoints worldwide, has joined forces with STI Security Training International, a Germany-based security training company world-renowned for its high-quality training programs and for creating the OTS® software currently built into millions of Smiths Detection X-ray systems.
Point Security, Inc., a security screening company based out of North Carolina announced that DSA Detection, a Massachusetts-based explosive trace detection company will be a source for X-ray correct training and testing aids for use with X-ray equipment. In addition, Point Security, Inc. will also use DSA Detection for X-ray image interpretation training classes.
DSA Detection, a Massachusetts-based explosive trace detection company, recently celebrated their 11th year in business. Security is often taken for granted until an unfortunate act takes place. However, DSA Detection has made it a priority in providing components approved by the Department of Homeland Security used in the operation and maintenance of all explosive trace detection instruments available in the market today throughout its entire 11-year existence. They also specialize in providing training in threat recognition and equipment operation.
North Andover, MA, November 12, 2015 (Newswire) - DSA Detection was recently awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) contract by the Department of Homeland Security – Transportation Security Administration (DHS/TSA). DSA is the largest supplier of ETD consumables in the world, offering the most comprehensive selection of Smiths, Morpho and Implant ETD consumables.
Mr. Howell received substantial positive feedback from the attendees of the training course. Specifically, feedback regarding how clearly and well presented the course material was. Trainees also commented on the depth of knowledge that Mr. Howell possesses, including his substantial real-world experience. After the course was completed, many trainees indicated they would recommend this training course to others.
Security threats at checkpoints are not easily detected by poorly trained security screeners. Many bags are filled with items that create a cluttered and confusing X-ray image, which is difficult for poorly trained security personnel to quickly and accurately interpret. It is important that the security staff be fully trained and prepared to identify these threats.
DSA Detection is proud to announce the launch of the DSA Detection Learning Management System (LMS). DSA’s expert instructors have developed some of the best computer-based training courses on screening and screening operations. This computer-based training is interactive and can provide a security staff a cost-effective approach to training. The courses have built-in testing and interactive modules that demonstrate the proper screening techniques. DSA Detection has the ability to custom tailor this training specifically to meet certain SOPs and policies.
