These days, tackling any potential security vulnerabilities is of the utmost importance. From developing better terrorist screening technologies to creating better security protocols for retail spaces, it’s important that we understand what threats are most prominent. When it comes to road vehicles, the undercarriage is one of the most sensitive areas, as foreign objects or dangerous modifications can be made, giving security experts a serious cause for concern. Gatekeeper’s response to this is the development of our Intelligent Vehicle Undercarriage Scanner, or the IVUS.
If flexibility is your concern, the IVUS is available as a potential solution when our mobile model is utilized. This is the case when you have a checkpoint or border crossing where roads are unable to be dug up, or if your checkpoint simply needs to be moved. The Intelligent Vehicle Undercarriage Scanner uses mobile bidirectional scanners to determine the make and model of a vehicle, as well as detecting any modifications or foreign objects and highlighting them clearly for security personnel. From start to finish, the process only takes seconds to determine whether there are any potential threats lingering beneath a vehicle.
Similarly to the mobile IVUS, the permanently installed Intelligent Vehicle Undercarriage Scanner generates a “digital fingerprint” of a vehicle through the compilation of high-resolution 3D images. This solution is ideal for military bases, permanent border checkpoints, government buildings, and more. The IVUS is utilized by security professionals worldwide to ensure that vehicles entering or exiting an area are not subject to any dangerous modifications and it’s a valuable asset for a number of applications.
There are other systems that may claim to do what the IVUS does but what sets our system apart is the emphasis on and inclusion of intelligence. Our system is capable of adaptability, and thus becomes better over time. Intelligent systems make processes that are typically cost-prohibitive, thanks to the expertise and manpower needed, much more accessible and capable of being performed routinely, making security easier for everyone involved, from the security personnel to the occupants of the vehicles being checked.
