Today Apstec Systems™(Apstec™) announces that it is participating in Milipol Paris to showcase how its innovative solution Human Security Radar®(HSR®), the first fully automatic real-time mass people screening solution protects public places from terrorist attacks.
Crowded public places are more vulnerable than ever and lack appropriate protection. Terrorists are frequently looking to “soft” targets because they are difficult to protect. Traditional checkpoint security approaches scanning one person at a time are not well suited to securing crowded places. Instead, these locations require new and innovative solutions that screen high volumes of people without undue disruption and delay.
Apstec is leading the way in providing seamless security for public spaces with HSR™. The fully automatic walkthrough system uniquely combines unparalleled high throughput, speed and accuracy to deliver the most effective solution for mass people screening on the global market. HSR detects improvised explosive devices concealed on the body or in body worn bags, and firearms wherever they are carried. It uses centimeter wave and other technologies combined with sophisticated algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning to discriminate explosives and weapons from benign materials, with a high degree of accuracy.
HSR has been widely tested and recognized by numerous police and intelligence services internationally and has been used in multiple customer deployments throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia to improve security in crowded places such as entrances to airport terminals, transport hubs, stadiums and exhibition centers. Recent examples include the G20 Summit in Osaka Japan, where Kansai International Airport deployed HSR to enhance security in the general landside areas and terminal entrances, as well as the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland where Palexpo Exhibition Center deployed HSR to enhance security while improving the visitor’s overall experience.
“We are delighted to be at Milipol and demonstratingHSR’s ability to secure crowded places in a way that is practical and proportionate and allows people to go about their daily lives without unnecessary disruption. No other approach to high footfall screening offers this.” said Apstec’s COO Stephen Cooper, OBE.
