As threats have become more sophisticated throughout the years, it has become imperative that security systems keep pace with hi-tech responses. More public and private enterprises like airports, hotels, and others vulnerable to attack in the hospitality arena; government buildings, military defense units, and others involved peripherally in political and defense operations; and corporations and industries in the private sector have all raised levels of security preparedness. Many are incorporating under vehicle scanner systems into their security platforms.
High-caliber technology is extremely important in order to prevent illegal activity and terrorism. A static under vehicle scanner has millimeter scale precision, high pixel resolution, and full-color area scans which provide clear images on every line-scan. Possible issues such as a vehicle suddenly accelerating or braking will not change the accuracy or result of the scan. The system works around any possible complication, including operating under direct sunlight.
Under vehicle scanner systems continue to advance, and mobile real-time video scanners were introduced in 2002. The continual advancement of technology has given scanners the ability to determine the make and model of each vehicle it scans, store the data, identify any modifications made to a vehicle, and expose foreign objects being hidden underneath. Video scanners do not enjoy the evenly lit undistorted images of static scanners, but they can still quickly alert security personnel to foreign objects, such as bombs, large enough to cause destruction.
One of the more impressive aspects of security scanner systems today is the ability to share information from various scanner locations in a central shared database. With this ability, security personnel are able to retrieve accurate information on approaching vehicles already in the system and make real-time comparisons to the vehicles’ histories as they pass over an under vehicle scanner.
These scanners can also offer Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) abilities. This security component is an add-on option to most under vehicle scanner systems. Utilizing the software and connected network will also permit security personnel to more accurately identify vehicles and prevent unlawful entry into a secured area.
An under vehicle scanner provides thorough scans of all vehicles passing through its checkpoint, under the watchful eyes of trained security personnel equipped to respond to anomalies. Security industry scanners have responded to more sophisticated threats with more sophisticated threat detection that is not only accurate and immediate, but that offers greater protection for security personnel on the front lines while they protect the people and assets associated with your business.
