Some people fail to realize just how many trains are out there, as well as how vulnerable to security threats those trains are. Cargo transportation networks worldwide rely on trains as an essential part of their economy, as it is an affordable, effective means of transporting goods. Nonetheless, our reliance on trains makes them a target as well. If train security is important to you, consider the use of an Intelligent Train Undercarriage Scanner.
How Does It Work?
The Intelligent Train Undercarriage System works similar to the Intelligent Vehicle Undercarriage Scanner, in that it is made up of an embedded platform scanning unit. This unit is placed between train rails and is used to capture high-resolution, virtual 3D images of the undercarriage of each car that passes by it. Once those images are captured, they can be used to patch together a fingerprint for each car, allowing us to determine whether or not any potentially dangerous modifications have been made. This can help prevent something like an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) from being attached to the bottom of a train car and weaponizing the train system we rely on.
Why Use the ITUS?
This system was engineered and designed with precision and speed in mind. In just a few seconds, the system can check each and every rail car and determine if there are any threads present. A human operator may not have the knowledge or capability to check cars and certainly lack the ability to do it in the time or with the accuracy that the ITUS is able to. For anyone who takes train security seriously, nothing stands up to the capabilities the ITUS brings to the table. Take advantage of the Intelligent Train Undercarriage Scanner today and make the world a safer place by doing so.
