Industry to Demonstrate Off-the-Shelf Integrated Force Protection and Counter-Terrorism Solutions at Northern Virginia Site
Date:9/27/2010

WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Several thousand federal, state and local leaders and physical security experts are expected to gather at Northern Virginia's Stafford Regional Airport next May 17-19 to observe demonstrations of the latest commercial off-the-shelf technology for countering terrorist threats to personnel, equipment and facilities - in combat zones as well as in domestic settings within the U.S. and abroad.

Military and civilian representatives of the Department of Defense and officials from other federal, state and local government agencies from throughout the United States and allied nations will attend the Eighth Force Protection Equipment Demonstration (FPED VIII). They will examine, firsthand, the best available force protection equipment and systems. The focus will be on reducing vulnerabilities to threats such as improvised explosive devices (IEDs), car bombs, suicide bombers, chemical and biological agents, and nuclear materials, among others, in combat and non-combat environments. Many security items first seen at earlier editions of the demonstrations are now in use around the world.

More than 575 exhibitors will present live demonstrations of nearly 3,000 technologically advanced commercial off-the-shelf products in 20 equipment categories at the federally sponsored and produced FPED VIII. The event has been held every two years since 1997, after the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff determined a need for regular reviews to assure a continuing awareness of the latest advances in commercially available equipment and systems for countering terrorism. The theme for FPED VIII, "Force Protection Through Integrated Physical Security Solutions," reflects a growing emphasis on mutually supporting resources to meet current and evolving force protection needs, anti-terrorist requirements, and the demands of an increasingly broad range of security challenges.
