Object detection assists UK border agency

Brijot Imaging Systems : 03 August, 2009  (Application Story)
Passive millimetre wave object detection from Brijot Imaging to help keep contraband out of the United Kingdom
The United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) has made the forward thinking decision to incorporate additional technology to help them with their efforts to keep contraband out of the country. Using a passive millimeter wave (PMMW) object detection system they have strengthened their ability to target illicit and smuggled goods. To toughen their screening for Class A drugs, concealed cash, and other items, they have adopted an approach which involves the deployment of a mix of fixed and mobile units across the UK.

Brijot Imaging Systems proved the technical ability to successfully screen passengers for contraband traveling short or long haul flights with final destinations into the UK during trials in 2007. The UKBA has since nationally deployed the PMMW object detection systems and these are now integral to their day-to-day contraband screening efforts at major air and sea ports. There have been some promising results to date with several seizures of cash and the use of the mobile system has greatly increased the flexibility of the equipment.

John Whyte, Director of UKBA and chair of the Detection Technology Board said, "The incorporation of the PMMW technology, along with behavioral science, and intelligence, has significantly increased the ability of our officers to detect contraband. The mobile system, which is a self-contained screening unit that can be at operational readiness within minutes, has allowed us to move the checkpoints from one high risk arrival to the next very easily. Brijot listened and responded to our needs in the development of this mobile aspect and we look forward to continued success and future co-operation."

Mitchel Laskey, president and chief executive officer stated, "Brijot is very pleased with the success that the UKBA has had with our solutions. The mobile system, named MobileScan, represents a true voice of customer solution based on features, benefits and the specific operating environment for use by their detection team. We are excited about the continued relationship with the UKBA in contraband screening and all the future integration opportunities."
