    North Billerica, MA - November 6, 2015 --- Passport Systems Inc. is announcing that their SmartShield™ Networked Radiation Detection System has been nominated to receive the NCT CBRNe Innovation Award for the most novel product, service or research paper of the year. The award recognizes outstanding achievement in the field of Research & Development.

    The SmartShield™ Networked Radiation Detection System was nominated because it shows great promise by approaching the detection problem at a system level and by delivering increased capabilities at the same or lower cost than traditional point detector approaches.

    “The SmartShield™ system grew out of a vision that a system of networked radiation detectors could outperform independent detectors,” said Dr. Robert Ledoux, President, CEO and Director of Passport Systems, Inc. “We are very pleased to be nominated for this award and recognized within the community for the work we are doing to design breakthrough technologies that address and meet the very real threats in the world today.”

    The NCT CBRNe Award winners will be announced during NCT CBRNe Asia which will take place November 10-12 in Bangkok.
