ROCKVILLE, MD, March 28, 2011 – GateKeeper USA, Inc. (GTKP.PK), announced today that its Container Automated Monitoring System “CAMS” devices could assure that fish, vegetables, dairy products, food products and other items shipped in cargo containers are safe and free of contamination from radiation and other chemical poisons. We are very pleased to have a product which can address, on a worldwide basis, the current adverse and unsafe environment resulting from the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Our thoughts are with the people of Japan as they recover from this disaster. As Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant reactors continue leaking radiation into the atmosphere and into surrounding oceans, the risk of radiation contamination from marine and marine-derived food sources increases not only in the seas surrounding Japan, but internationally. The effects of this tragedy are already washing up on beaches in the USA. According to sources in Oregon, post – tsunami wind and ocean currents have deposited on Newport Beach, what appear to be Japan tsunami debris. Beach contamination from dead and radioactive sea life could linger for years in the food supply chain and where and when the radiation will end up is not yet predictable as its detection cannot be precise due to wind and ocean currents that can and will change.
Current monitoring systems for Shipping Containers are inadequate for to protecting the public from low level radiation, contaminated and/or toxic foods and products. GateKeeper USA’s CAMS, however, when installed in shipping containers, will detect hazardous contaminants and radiation even at low levels, with real time reporting.
Following the installation of CAMS devices on shipping containers – Shippers, Vendors, Purchasers, and Government Regulators would be immediately notified when radiation and hazardous contaminants are present in products shipped, prior to their arrival in the USA. As previously announced, CAMS have demonstrated and exceeded criteria set forth by The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), under the original Broad Agency Announcement issued by the HSARPA for an Advanced Container Security Device, (ACSD) among others, and have exceeded provisions as mandated in the 9/11 bill for seaport security as well as Secure Freight Initiative (SFI) under Customs and Border Protection (CBP), which manages the Container Security Initiative (CSI).
