Several thousands of miles across the sea is the beautiful island of Bohol, home to the famous Philippine Tarsier – considered to be one among thousands of endangered species in the world today. What’s so interesting about this small animal is its unique ability to rotate its head 180 degrees. Add up the tarsier’s very large eyes, reputed to be the only animal to have such big eye to body ratio, and you have an animal that is able to see exceptionally well at night. And with those exceptional night vision eyes and movable ears that can almost hear any movement, the result is an animal that perfectly embodies the kind of security we must have today.
You have probably heard the news about the Philippine hostage situation wherein some Hong Kong Chinese nationals were carelessly held hostage on the bus for almost 12 hours. Ironically, with today’s CCTV technology, we find that there is still more to learn out there. Simply put, we need more security innovations and advancements for the merciless threats of today. This is why a new kind of closed circuit thermal imager or CCTI is being developed by Manifest Marketing Limited.
Inspired by the Tarsier’s astounding abilities, the promising Tarsier Closed Circuit Thermal Imager is definitely something to look out for. First things first; one of the best features of the Tarsier CCTI is its 24-hour 7 days a week functionality. This means that this great tool will immerse its extra-sensitive eyes for you every single minute, so you won’t have to worry about getting breached by those pesky thieves at night. The tarsier CCTI works at its best at night. Even the shadow is no excuse and the various light conditions brought about by fog and smoke will not affect the efficiency of the tarsier at all. Now that’s really something worthy of a second look.
If you are questioning the Tarsier’s durability and life expectancy, it helps to know that the International Electrotechnical Commission or IEC through the International Protection Rating Code has rated the Tarsier to be IP66 certified. This means that the Tarsier CCTI is highly effective against solid and liquid intrusion. Talk about maximum durability and resistance! Also built for the extremes, the Tarsier has a maximum temperature threshold of +80 degree Celsius and a minimum threshold of -40 degrees Celsius. The whole product is also metal-coated with aluminum for ensured life expectancy.
Another interesting factor to check out is the Tarsier’s lenses that are both adaptable and flexible to various ranges and distances. Equipped with features such as the zoom feature and control over brightness and contrast, you have the perfect surveillance and protection for your business and home. Use the Tarsier CCTI anywhere you want. With a very easy set-up and installation procedure, you will be on your way to finally getting the good night’s sleep you have been longing to have for many days now.
The Personal Role Radio (PRR) from Selex Communications has been very useful in areas where immediate and clear communication is highly important. Distributed by Manifest Marketing especially across Asia, it is mostly the chosen brand by professional security forces and government police during operations.
Selex Communications is the one behind Personal Role Radio, the key in a clear and fast communication between soldiers especially in battlefields. Its lightweight and compact design makesit easy to carry during operations. It uses 50mW transmit power under 2.4GHz spread spectrum technology and capable in an operating open terrain range of 500m even within three floors of a building. It is also equipped with a total of 256 channels where 16 are directly available to the user. Manifest Marketing of Hong Kong now distributes it especially among buyers in Asia and the listed details below are more of its remarkable features:
Press to Talk (PTT)
Personal Role Radio has a wireless PTT function. This feature allows the user to change PTT setting without losing focus and control to his weapon. The wireless PTT function is useful even within 2m range.
Interchangeable Switch Pack
Personal Role Radio can be easily configured with its interchangeable switch packs. It can be changed into two roles: the Single PTT Switch Pack suitable for users operating PRR singly and the Dual PTT Switch Pack where connection to the PRR and the Combat Net radio is possible. When switching to Dual Switch Interface, the audio from the Combat Net Radio and PRR are heard on the same microphone but not all at the same time as PRR has a call waiting tone for incoming signals.
PRR comes with audio ancillaries suitable for combat usage. This includes headsets equipped with different features and modes such as high noise, in-the-ear, active noise reduction, low profile, discreet, lightweight, waterproof communication solution and covert tactical speaker-microphone. Included as well is a fully integrated intercom system that is made to fit different range of users.
The re-broadcast unit is capable of doubling the range of scope for PRR signals. This makes it useful for other PRR users deployed outside the range normally covered by PRR. The device also works when there’s little signal clarity during heavy fogs.
With these great features, Personal Role Radio can indeed fit the needs of different users needing radios especially during combats and operations. Fortunately, Manifest Marketing of Hong Kong now distributes this innovative product from Selex Communications so it can be obtained easier especially in Asia. With PRR, expect that communication clarity even under harsh deployments is always possible!

Always a step ahead – is the fittingly-true slogan of Micro Systemation, a world leader in mobile forensics. Two products in particular distributed in Asia by Manifest Marketing Hong Kong the XRY and XACT are worth highlighting.
I discovered that both products actually enhance the mobile phones we have today, and yes they exist for one purpose and calling – providing security. As you know, today everything is pretty much complex. The luxury of privacy is starting to fade away as we find ourselves living in a digital and highly-sophisticated world where every action can be seen in the eyes of the camera, every conversation is done through mobile technology, and our daily transactions done through a handy computer machine. It isn’t surprising that cybercrimes are growing increasingly each year. Literally crime is commited even when both parties are across Asia, Europe and Americas. That is why forensic experts are trying hard to cope with the need to counter the attack.
With more people online in Asia than Europe and Americas combined, it is no wonder that XRY and XACT is in such popular demand in countries like China, India, Cambodia, Japan and Korea. Sipping coffee while reading the astounding benefits of the XRY and XACT technology, I realized that using this form of technology will make investigations much easier and effective. I found out that the XRY is actually the base product while the XACT is upgraded version of it. Able to read both the physical and logical components of mobile devices, it enables security agents and investigators to save time, effort, and money while providing exceptional results as well. One wonderful feature of the XRY and XACT product is the logical and physical extraction wizard which can be used to find all the information needed for investigation. So this means that we can actually get and recover data from all those devices. And what’s more is that you can also find out what information is needed and what is not. So it is what most users say as a critical time saver. But just as are tempted to think that the XRY and XACT are difficult to use, think again! The data collected from the XRY and XACT can be easily copied to flash disks, CD’s, DVD’s and can even be exported to MS Office and Open Office software.
Once you purchase any of these two products, you will also get training courses that will make sure that you will get all the maximum benefits of the product. You will also get free technical support and free software releases as well, in case of upgrades in the future. To sum it all, both the XRY and the XACT are considered as the all-in-one solution to your mobile forensics investigation needs. But you may be wondering where you can get these super products.

After all, we boys always want to fantasize being a part of these smart hard-core soldiers that can defy almost any obstacle they face in.

There is one product that defines what Chemring EOD is exactly about, and that is their refuted CUVSS or Colour Under Surveillance System.

CUVSS is uniquely designed to provide its clients with a faster and more effective way to view the underside of vehicles. This is done though its surveillance scanner that is able to generate clear and high quality resolution images for accurate viewing.

Since CUVSS is built for easy usage, it no longer comes with a mouse and keyboard. Everything can be done literally in the touch screen monitor. Isn’t that perfect?
But wait, there is still more! CUVSS is also equipped with a scene camera, approximately six times higher in resolution compared to most monochrome cameras. The camera is fully capable of automatically viewing the vehicle’s plate number and its driver as well. Also weather-proof, the CUVSS can run on all weather conditions, rain or shine, day and night, indeed your 24-hour security surveillance system. Additional features like its zoom functions, image matching scans, and ability to be fully integrated within a local surveillance network and other terminals make the CUVSS the ideal detection system. Currently, Chemring EOD is a leading vehicle surveillance system in Asia as it finds its way to the Hong Kong based company,Manifest Marketing Limited.

No public or private sector in Asia can afford repeating the break-in at the South Africa Pelindaba Nuclear Site that made headline news in 2007. Four armed men broke into the Pelindaba nuclear facility , a site where hundreds of kilograms of weapons-grade uranium are stored. Four criminals deactivated several layers of security, including a 10,000-volt electrical fence. A separate group of intruders failed in an attempt to break in from the west. The timing suggests a coordinated attack against a facility that contains an estimated 25 bombs’ worth of weapons-grade nuclear material. A large premise requires a sophisticated level of security and surveillance monitoring to maintain a high level of premise managment and to prevent vandalism and theft.
