UDT border security partner reaches GSC semi-finals

Universal Detection Technology : 02 October, 2009  (Company News)
Precision Sensors Instrumentation gains semi-final position in the Global Security Challenge for passive and remote border security control system proposal
Universal Detection Technology has reported that its partner in the development of border and zone security sensors, Precision Sensors Instrumentation (PSI), has been nominated as a semi-finalist in the 2009 European Global Security Challenge.

The Global Security Challenge (GSC) is a central hub for security innovators, startups and investors that hosts events around the globe. The GSC aims to empower entrepreneurs in the security technology space and run the leading business plan competitions to find the most promising security and defense startups in the world. In 2009, PSI submitted a proposal for its Passive and Remote Border Security Control System to the GSC European competition, and it was chosen out of several hundred as one of the semifinalists.

PSI adapted one of today's most sensitive seismic sensors into an ultra-sensitive position sensor. The sensor remotely detects intruders into a security zone by detecting the unique seismic signature they produce either on foot or by vehicles. The sensor is also designed to be totally passive and undetectable and can function without the need of line of sight visibility. The sensor can optimally be used for border protection or the physical security of a perimeter such as an army base or a port.

The US Border & Perimeter protection market is expected to be one of the fastest growing market segments in Homeland Security. According to Homeland Security Research's (HSRC) landmark research, 2007-2011 US Homeland Security (Government & Private Sectors) Market Outlook, this market is expected to accumulate to $13.9B between 2007 and 2011. The market demand is composed of both Government and Private sectors, with the majority of the growth coming from the Federal Government.

"The nomination from the European Global Security Challenge is the second time PSI's technology has garnered international recognition," said Mr Jacques Tizabi, UNDT's Chief Executive Officer. 'PSI's Passive and Remote Border Security Control System is one of the most sensitive in the market,' he added.
