FLIR Griffin G510 Receives ‘Threat Detection Award’ in PSI’s Counter Terror Awards

FLIR is honored to announce that its Griffin G510 person-portable gas chromatograph mass spectrometer (GC-MS) has been awarded the Threat Detection Award by the Counter Terror Awards, organized by PSI Media and supported by Counter Terror Business and the Security and Counter Terror Expo (SCTX). Presented at the second-annual Counter Terror Awards in London, the G510 was chosen for assisting in the detection and disruption of terrorist threats.

The Counter Terror Awards recognize organizations and individuals for their contributions to reducing the threat of global terrorism. The FLIR Griffin G510 was purpose-built to do just that. The G510 is used by civilian, federal, and military responders to quickly identify chemical hazards at the site of interest. It complements presumptive detectors by enabling responders to analyze all phases of matter including liquid, solid, and vapor. It features a large touchscreen with automated user controls, can be operated while wearing full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and is built with an IP65-rated enclosure for harsh environments.

In military missions, the G510 is used to identify trace amounts of explosives and chemical warfare agents. In civilian scenarios, it is used to analyze unknown powders and confirm the presence of opioids like fentanyl, or other illegal drugs. It is also used to monitor the environment around industrial areas, in addition to responding to natural disasters. Simply put, the Griffin G510 person-portable GC-MS helps keep people safe and the environment clean.

Thank you to the Counter Terror Awards and Counter Terror Business for acknowledging the FLIR Griffin G510, and congratulations to the other category winners for helping reduce the threat of global terrorism. We salute you!
