Heuresis Announces Its Rebrand to Viken Detection

Heuresis, pioneer of handheld x-ray imaging and analytical devices, today announced it is rebranding the company as Viken Detection (effective February 11). The brand name, Viken, and tagline, “One Sense Ahead,” reflect the vision of the company, led by CEO Jim Ryan and CTO Dr. Peter Rothschild, to significantly increase the use of cutting-edge technologies to address urgent homeland security and public safety challenges.

Viken Detection is already the recognized leader in handheld imaging used by law enforcement to uncover contraband such as opioids, cash and explosives hidden in vehicles, cargo containers, boats, buildings and other concealed areas. Viken Detection is also revolutionizing lead paint detection with its Pb200i, a handheld analyzer that can identify the hazard at much lower levels than currently being tested. In addition to the advanced physics, all Viken’s ergonomic handheld devices are Android-based, and include smartphone technologies such as a camera, GPS, WiFi, third-party app integration and other functionality.

“There are many areas of homeland security and public safety that can be addressed with new technology advances,” said Ryan. “Our focus is to quickly get this technology into the hands of professionals who need it to protect the public. Now our brand name reflects that vision and mission.”
