Border point Smart Corridor screening system

Thales : 20 November, 2008  (New Product)
With a mix of surveillance, behaviour recognition, biometrics and sensor technology, Smart Corridor presents a comprehensive threat prevention system for critical facilities and border points
Thales presents the Smart Corridor, a next-generation screening system, which answer the problem of increasing people flow management in sensitive sites, events or access control of critical infrastructures. The Smart Corridor, based on a sophisticated mix of state-of-the-art identification, detection and inspection technologies, is designed to carry out the security screening procedures. It is ideal for use in airports, railway stations and other transportation hubs, critical infrastructures such as nuclear facilities and petro-chemical plants, and in government buildings such as ministries, police departments and military bases.

It is currently in the prototype stage and can be seen at Thales's European Security Solutions Center, recently inaugurated in Vélizy le Bois, near Paris. Laboratory simulations and operational tests have already demonstrated the clear advantage of such a people screening solution over traditional security checkpoints and the revolutionary impact that its introduction will have on security concepts worldwide.

"Taking a holistic approach to the issue of security in critical infrastructures, the Smart Corridor integrates intelligent video surveillance, biometrics and sensor technology into a powerful automated screening system that achieves security objectives without requiring people to stop at checkpoints" comments Kamel Boussadia, iAirport Solution Manager at Thales. "In fact, the Smart Corridor is completely transparent to the passenger, who feels only a slight breeze when the system analyses the air for molecules of potentially explosive materials. The system is compatible with security laws and international regulations and is based on multiple passive, non-intrusive sensor technologies which respect passengers' privacy, health and safety."

The Smart Corridor functions are non intrusive for the person and don't reflect any detailed silhouette by images. Four meters long, all devices and sensors are installed "behind the scenes", completely invisible for the person. The intelligent video surveillance system performs functions such as counting people, detecting abandoned objects and suspicious behaviours (such as u-turn). A biometrics control system permits the identification of a person with the face and iris recognition solution embedded in the smart corridor. Sophisticated sensors detect both traces of explosives as well as metallic and dielectric objects hidden underneath clothing.

Thales demonstrates with this new technology how operators at airports can secure new infrastructures and make better use of existing ones by: facilitating the flow of people; providing a people security screening "on the move"; speeding up passengers check-in, boarding and travel verification; enabling global flow management and planning. Security levels are improved through a secured information exchange platform, more accurate passenger identification and verification, and risk assessment on passengers' costs.
