Optim LLC, a designer and manufacturer of flexible contraband fiberscopes proudly announces that the FreedomView LED Fiberscope was honored as a Platinum Winner of a Security Products Govie Award.  The Govie award ceremony was held during the GovSec 2014 Security Conference in Washington, DC at which Optim was an exhibitor. The award honors outstanding government security products in which FreedomView was chosen in the Homeland Security category.

“Optim’s proud to have our contribution to our country’s security be recognized, particularly since our products are 100% US manufactured,” said Paul Joyce, CEO of Optim LLC.

The FreedomView LED Fiberscope is a hand-held, portable inspection device that combines a high intensity LED light source with a flexible, insertion shaft that can be fully immersed in water, gasoline and diesel fuel.  It provides fast and accurate remote imaging, enabling visual inspections in hard-to-reach areas.

The Security Products’ Government Security Award, The Govie, was launched in 2009.  A panel of judges from the security industry select the top entries from the over 235 applicants in 16 categories and named them winners using criteria including Features, Innovation, User Friendliness, Interoperability, Quality, Design, Market Opportunity, Impact to the Security Industry, Technical Advances, and Scalability

Currently utilized by US Customs and Border Patrol, the scopes help locate hidden contraband in both vehicles and aircraft.
