Arlington, VA, June 8, 2020 – STS International, Inc. recently teamed with FLIR Systems, Inc. to provide increased screening capability at the Pentagon to help identify visitors with elevated skin temperature (EST), one of the main symptoms of COVID-19 infections.
Using the FLIR A700 EST-IS integrated screening solution, Pentagon security personnel can quickly detect EST using highly accurate infrared (IR) technology while remaining socially distanced from the individual. STS installed the systems at the Pentagon Visitor Center, where individuals are checked-in and cleared to enter the facility. STS also developed and provided training to the screeners and members of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, as well as service members from the U.S. Army Rapid Equipping Force (REF), to ensure proper use of the equipment and the most accurate results.
“We’re pleased to be teamed with STS International in providing our EST solution to help protect visitors to the Pentagon,” said Tim Durham, FLIR VP and General Manager of the company’s Sensor Systems business. “Elevated skin temperature screenings can be a first line of defense in managing the spread of the novel coronavirus.”
“We are incredibly proud to be supporting this effort with FLIR and part of the COVID-19 response,” said Dave Morgan, STS President. “These are challenging times, and when you get the right partnership and the right energy, like between FLIR and STS, you can bring innovation and agility to help solve these challenges and, hopefully, make everyone safer and more secure.”
