Morphix Technologies Chameleon Gains US SAFETY Act Approval

November 12, 2014  | 

Morphix Technologies' Chameleon, a wearable device that allows hands-free detection of up to 10 different hazards at one time in a variety of operating environments, has been approved by the US SAFETY Act of the Department of Homeland Security as an anti-terrorism technology that will be used to save lives. The SAFETY Act provides important legal liability protections for providers of Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies. The goal of the SAFETY Act is to encourage the development and deployment of effective anti-terrorism products and services by providing liability protections. This designation will last for a term of five years for Morphix Technologies with the option to renew protections.

The Chameleon is an easy-to-use and low cost reusable armband which can hold up to 10 cassettes, each of which detects a particular toxic chemical and changes color upon detection. When a cassette shows only one color the first responder knows no toxic gas is present. When two colors appear in the window, the first responder knows it's time to take action.

The Department of Homeland Security feels that the Chameleon will help military and first responders at the scenes of terrorist events and natural disasters to quickly and reliably detect any invisible toxic chemicals that may be present in the air.

"We're honored that the Chameleon has been approved as an anti-terrorism technology and given the SAFETY Act seal of approval. We believe its use will save American lives and help first responders rescue those effected by acts of terrorism and natural disasters. We're glad we can help," commented Kim Pricenski, VP of Marketing and Sales at Morphix Technologies.

The Chameleon is designed for use in arctic, tropical, and desert conditions and can even be immersed in water, which is why it is the chemical detection unit of choice for naval boarding teams. The Chameleon can also be used by law enforcement officers at the scene of meth lab raids or chemical suicides, by first responders and firefighters during and after fires, by fire scene investigators in arson investigations, as well as in complex industrial situations, to detect any toxic gases and prevent tragedy.
