An under vehicle scanner is being integrated into security systems by many industries all over the world including the police force, customs, prisons, airports, defense units, hotels and banks. As threats become more sophisticated, the need for accuracy and clarity of visual results has never been more important.
Effective systems can operate a checkpoint system on a 24-hour basis with no interruption to traffic and without compromising security procedures.
Accuracy of Technology
Technology superiority is paramount to counteract terrorist and illegal activity. A modern under vehicle scanner utilizes high pixel resolution and millimeter scale precision as well as full color area scans to ensure clear, non-distorted images at all times. Scanners can still collect accurate results, even with unexpected acceleration or braking of a passing vehicle, and function under direct sunlight.
Due to these technological advancements, an under vehicle scanner has the ability to identify a vehicle’s make and model, detect foreign objects or vehicle modifications, and share results with security personnel, all in a matter of seconds. It has come a long way since its inception as a mainstream security measure in the 1990s.
Through secure and superior network intelligence, various scanner sites can be interfaced to a single, centralized command and control center to share security information on incoming vehicles and make comparisons to existing vehicles on file. Scanners also have the ability to compare a vehicle’s history or manufacturer template as well as offer sophisticated Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) facilities. The software and connecting network intelligence will allow comparison of a vehicle to a vehicle’s previous visit and aid in the detection of anomalies.
Due to sophisticated technology, all vehicles can now be thoroughly checked, giving your security team 100% access to all vehicles passing through your zone of responsibility. Although it is an effective procedure, it cannot be done with computerized systems alone.
A trained operative needs to be present at all times to pick up on potential threats and anomalies and report them to the appropriate security personnel. Over time, personnel will become more proficient at identifying contraband and threats without having to resort to mirror checks, and other manual methods.
As technology quickly moves forward, industry scanners are improving their capabilities allowing clients to meet the demands of their security requirements. Organizations around the world are constantly working harder to raise their security levels and minimize security threats by choosing to use an under vehicle scanner to assist them with their security needs.
