Bomb analysis system seen to expand sales
by Staff Writers
Washington (UPI) Feb 27, 2013

The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is among users of Dfuze.

A bomb analysis system developed in Britain and bought by a U.S. company is looking to expand markets worldwide.

The Dfuze system began as an extensive database of all components that go into explosive devices at Britain's Scotland Yard crime detection service, which operates a Bomb Data Center.

Colorado firm Intelligent Software Solutions said the acquisition will expand the company's reach into countries and markets worldwide.

In November last year ISS acquired the principal assets of Xpect Software LLC, a provider of defense and security software solutions including Dfuze.

Xpect Software's inventory included a range of data analysis and management solutions for national, state and local governments across 22 countries. Before the acquisition the company operated from Mount Laurel, N.J. The cost of the acquisition or details of the ongoing relationship between Xpect and ISS weren't disclosed.

The software assists users in identifying, collating, analyzing, visualizing and exploiting any type of information. Its principal product, Dfuze, has evolved into the de facto global standard for counter improvised explosive devices, explosive ordnance disposal and counter-terrorism operations around the world.

ISS said its acquisition of the Dfuze product suite and other Xpect assets would help ISS to expand into new international markets in its core business areas.

The company says the Dfuze range of products complements ISS's flagship products such as WebTASand CIDNE, both used by defense and security agencies for reporting and analysis.

Having Dfuze will allow ISS to expand its range of offerings in the law enforcement and public safety arenas with the combined expertise of the ISS and Xpect teams.

Defense News cited Dfuze's "extraordinary growth in world markets and the way it's managed to integrate IED investigations internationally."

The system was launched in Britain in 1999 and is deployed in 22 countries.

"It has become not just a database but a de facto mechanism for international alliances in the field of bomb investigations," Defense News said on its website.

ISS Chief Executive Officer Jay Jesse said the acquisition would bring "very compelling benefits for ISS."

The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is among users of Dfuze. The system was employed after the 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai, India, and the 2006 liquid bomb airliner plot.

The plot involving at least 10 airliners aimed to detonate liquid explosives on board planes in flight from Britain to the United States and Canada. The plot was discovered and foiled by British police before it could be carried out.
