LifeStorage Defends Against Terrorist-Type Threats

Self-storage operator LifeStorage has contracted homeland-security technology firm Defentect to provide its DM3 and Gammatect technologies at 10 LifeStorage facilities in Chicago. The $135,000 follow-up contract follows an initial $20,000 order from LifeStorage in March for Defentect's chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive threat-detection technologies.
DM3 is a management, monitoring and messaging software platform that enables self-storage operators to add radiation detection and other threat-event sensors to their security systems. Gammatect sensors detect gamma radiation. They can be positioned adjacent to security cameras to provide visual identification of a threat, or hidden above ceilings or behind walls to prevent compromise by terrorists.
Defentect is a business unit of Splinternet Holdings Inc. The company develops and markets threat-awareness solutions and advanced technologies to fight the worldwide threat of terrorism.
