Our Kestrel TSCM TM Professional Software - Signal Intelligence Support System (SISS) provides a first of its kind, dual (multiple) receiver capability and many other advanced software based features and functionality that are operator work flow enhanced, based on the skill and experience of our Technical Security Specialist's (TSS) who have implemented many of the professional operator workflow functionality, methods, techniques and procedures identified within the TSB 2000 (Technical) Standard TM and 37 years of field experience in conducting Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) inspections at all known and developing threat levels around the globe.

"Innovation is Simply the Beginning..."

"Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., represents the full range of REI TSCM equipment resources in Canada via a strategic alliance with Price Langevin & Associates Inc., an authorized REI Canadian Dealer located in Western Canada..."

FLIR Canada Limited PDTG Inc., is an authorized FLIR dealer

Professional Development TSCM Group Inc., represents the full line of FLIR Infrared (IR) Thermal Imagers suitable for security, law enforcement and military technical security related applications.

FLIR was established in 1978 to pioneer the development of high-performance, low-cost infrared (thermal) imaging systems for airborne applications. Thermal imaging systems detect the infrared energy (heat) that is emitted by all people, objects and materials. Infrared cameras allow the operator to see in total darkness, adverse weather and through such air pollutants as smoke and haze.

The Technical Security Branch (TSB) has conducted significant operational research in developing operational technical procedures specific to counter-surveillance (CS) and Technical Surveillance Device (TSD) identification utilizing the worlds most advanced Infrared (IR) Thermal Imaging Cameras.

PDTG Inc., utilizes the FLIR T-400 IR Thermal ImagerProfessional Development TSCM Group Inc., has conducted extensive research in both a controlled laboratory setting and during active field trials to determine the best FLIR product for use in a technical security role.

Our in-house ITC Certified (Level I) Thermographer has integrated this extensive research and formally introduced methods and techniques based on best practices.

We strongly recommend the FLIR T-400, P640 and SC-660 line of products for technical security related assignments.

Although, there are many less expensive products offered by several manufacturers including FLIR, these low cost units lack the sensitivity and resolution required for professional level technical security applications.
