LONGMONT, Colorado (February 18, 2011) - TSA Systems has developed a highly sensitive mobile detection system, MDS-134A, capable of detecting Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) in variable background environments and exceeding the requirements of the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO). It is designed to automatically scan vehicles, rail cars, air cargo bins and seaport shipping containers without the need for frequent calibration. The MDS system can perform both stationary and drive-by applications. Check-points can be quickly established in the event that the threat of potential radioactive material movement has been identified. The MDS-134A can also be modified for special monitoring requirements.

The MDS-134A van is fitted with shielded plastic scintillator detectors and helium3 detectors for detecting both gamma and neutron radiation. It can detect relatively low energy emissions from plutonium and highly enriched uranium as well as emissions from potential dirty bombs and isotopes used in medicine or industry. The detection area ranges from ground level to several meters in the air without a gap in detector coverage. Alarm notifications are displayed on a laptop PC located within the MDS van but can also be displayed on a remote alarm panel placed somewhere outside the van. The system will detect radiation but is totally passive and does not emit any radiation itself.

To complement the superior detection capabilities of the MDS-134A the laptop PC comes with the TSA Systems software RAVEN (Radiation Alarm and Video Event Notification). The MDS-134A supports the DNDO’s Global Nuclear Detection Architecture by incorporating RAVEN software with comprehensive communication and reporting for monitoring devices. The Global Nuclear Detection Architecture is based on this premise of seamless communication. The RAVEN software not only alerts the monitoring personnel to an alarm condition but also will display and archive graphs, data, and video images to assist in determining the specific location of the radioactive item. Analysis of select images and data can subsequently be relayed to response personnel in the field for possible secondary inspection or other interdiction. These images and data can be shared between 3rd. party agencies and/or systems for their records and analysis.

In addition to the MDS-134A, RAVEN software is featured in TSA’s extensive line of radiation portal monitors (RPM). Pedestrian, train, vehicle and conveyor portal monitors along with the MDS-134A mobile detection system provide an extremely comprehensive network of SNM detection monitors by TSA Systems.

For 50 years, TSA Systems, Ltd. of Longmont, CO has specialized in the design and manufacture of nuclear radiation monitors. TSA’s MDS-134A, a mobile detection system with RAVEN software, provides a quality measurable baseline to the DNDO’s Global Nuclear Detection Architecture responsibility. It is an engineered solution to the need for coordinated efforts for preemptive national security and for effective communication between multiple federal and local agencies which play a role in defending the global supply chain against a nuclear threat. The MDS-134A provides high sensitivity, reliable operation, mobility and networking to areas in need of radioactive materials detection.

About TSA Systems, Ltd.: TSA Systems is celebrating 50 years of world renowned respect for its design, manufacture and installation of detection and monitoring devices for radioactive and special nuclear materials.

Myeloidysplastic Syndromes (MDS) – Epidemiology Insights (2016-2028)
Myeloidysplastic syndromes (MDS) can be described as a group of hematologic malignancies, that occurr due to abnormality in blood-forming cells in the bone marrow. It is a rare blood cancer and can be mild, moderate or severe, in terms of severity.

Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) Treatment Market Industry Forecast till 2025
Myelodysplastic (MDS) syndrome is a type of bone marrow disorder, where bone marrow is unable to produce healthy and mature blood cells. The immature blood cells called as blasts, get stored in the bone marrow and blood and obstruct the natural function of the hematological system which results in depletion of healthy red blood cells, platelets, and white blood cells. Myelodysplastic syndrome is usually seen in geriatric population and more
Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) Treatment Market - Global Industry Insights 2025
Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is a disorder, which affects the bone marrow and produces immature blood cells. Bone marrow failure leads to lowering the levels of healthy blood cells circulation in the bloodstream. According to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, around 80%-85% of people with MDS have more cells in their bone marrow than healthy people. According to National Organization for Rare Disorders, MDS deteriorates into a form of cancer in around
