ASIS Accolade award for drive-through screening system

Envisage Technology Limited : 05 October, 2009  (New Product)
CarSCAN technology gains recognition at ASIS for innovation with its ability to enable rapid explosion, contraband and stowaway detection with the occupants still in the car, improving throughput without compromising on safety or detection levels
ASIS Accolade award for drive-through screening system
Spectrum San Diego, a proven innovator in the high-tech security screening market, along with it's EMEA distributor Envisage Technology, have announced that its CarSCAN technology was selected as a winner of the 2009 ASIS Accolades program. The ASIS Accolades recognizes the security industry's most innovative new products, services and solutions. Selected from more than 130 entries, CarSCAN won for its ability to provide rapid and reliable detection of explosives, contraband, and stowaways in cars and light trucks.

"We believe that CarSCAN is a breakthrough in vehicle screening technology, and winning the ASIS Accolades re-confirms this," said Dr Steven Smith, president and technical director of Spectrum San Diego. "We are honoured that CarSCAN is being recognized among security industry leaders and innovators."

CarSCAN's patent-pending technology provides actionable information to security personnel at border crossings, military bases, embassies, ports and other critical government and private facilities. The vehicle being inspected drives through the CarSCAN archway and the scanned image is displayed on the security officer's monitor, much the same as an airport baggage scanner. Unlike previous generation vehicle scanners, dual-energy transmission imaging penetrates through the entire vehicle, greatly minimizing blind spots and highlighting potential threats in easily understandable colour-coded images.

CarSCAN meets national safety standards for the X-ray screening of vehicles containing passengers. Its small footprint allows the CarSCAN archway to be installed into an existing traffic lane. Minimal manpower and time are required for installation and operational training. Since only a few hours are necessary to set up and dismantle the system, short notice needs and unanticipated security requirements can easily be accommodated. No trenching or build-out of the installation area is necessary. CarSCAN can be operated at an unlimited distance from security personnel to provide standoff blast protection.
