CAMS meets DHS container security requirements

GateKeeper USA : 13 February, 2009  (New Product)
Container Automated Monitoring System from GateKeeper meets all the requirements for container screening laid down by the US Department of Homeland Security
GateKeeper USA has announced that US and International ports face an ongoing threat from a variety of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high yield explosive (CBRNE) devices across a broad range of military, government and commercial operations. The number of nations and non-national terrorist and criminal organizations capable of developing, possessing and deploying CBRNE weapons is steadily increasing and GateKeeper USA, has already produced the answer to these worldwide threats in its CAMS series. This effort was previously awarded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to SAIC and L-3 Communications Holdings to enter into development of a prototype of an Advanced Container Security Device (ACSD).

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Under the original Broad Agency Announcement issued by the Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency defines an ACSD as "a sophisticated security system within the electronics industry that can detect unauthorised breaches on all six sides of a standard cargo container or an intrusion through the door while also monitor and relay conditions inside the container such as humidity temperature and oxygen levels." The device should also have an approximately 1,250 day battery life, and detect a human being weighing more than 70 lbs within 2 hours.

GateKeeper USA's Container Automated Monitoring System (CAMS) series, currently available, clearly exceed the end goals set by DHS and provides state-of -the-art solutions for the container industry. The CAMS devices employ not only sensors but sophisticated proprietary software and microprocessors that allows multiple inputs to be detected, analyzed and identified simultaneously, in near real time with the ability to intuitively perceive, extrapolate and detect homemade or hybrid substances.

Gatekeeper USA's ACSD product offerings feature four unique CAMS devices. ALPHA Series for basic applications; BRAVO series for perishable goods and cold chain management, featuring real time temperature reading with alarm mode, and spoilage detection to include bacteria, as may be requested by the customer; CHARLIE Series for valuable and sensitive cargo; and the DELTA Series for covert/military applications meeting DHS requirements in a NBC environment for CBRNE detection and Intrusion / Tampering, Biometrics collection and full color video. All of the different Series of CAMS will include Geo-Fencing; Over Air Programming; Tamper Notification; and, redundant location identification with GPS Technology.

The GateKeeper USA CAMS devices truly and accurately define the paradigm for an ACSD.
