Impeva Labs, Inc. has announced the Company's Global Sentinel® Satellite Tag has been awarded Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance (HERO) certification by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).
This certification is a requirement for any electromagnetic transmitting device that operates in close proximity to ordnance, and is only given after extensive testing and evaluation by the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, VA. The HERO certification allows Impeva to extend its services to provide continuous global monitoring for all DoD cargo. Impeva Labs is already supporting several DoD supply chains in demanding environments including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan, and Kuwait. The addition of HERO certification and the expansion of operational uses further validate the value and reliability of Impeva Labs’ Global Sentinel®.
