No radiation, no X-rays, no embarrassment. Find hidden objects on people without hindering them in any way.
Saflec used the IFSEC Securex exhibition to announce it has been appointed as the South African agent for UK-based ThruVision. It will now be able to sell and service ThruVision’s imaging systems throughout South Africa.
The ThruVision imaging systems make it possible to detect items previously impossible to find when hidden on a person without manual or X-ray scans.
ThruVision’s imaging solutions are entirely passive, with no irradiation of subjects that might give rise to health concerns. Images of concealed objects on people are formed using the terahertz waves naturally produced by all people. Privacy is maintained as sensitive anatomical details of people being imaged are not revealed.
At the terahertz frequency, the scanner can read energy signals from the human body and the objects they carry. These energy signals are always present in all matter and can be viewed by this system on a standard monitor, making it impossible to hide any article, even under multiple layers of clothing.
Moreover, instead of focusing on finding metal objects on people, companies can now find everything else as well and this can be done as people pass by. It is only necessary to stop someone if they are found to be carrying something they should not.
The ThruVision products can identify CDs, perfumes, cigarettes, plastics, liquids, gold and platinum, bank notes, money belts, drugs, explosives, pharmaceuticals and cellular phones. All these items could have been hidden from view in the past and only identified by manual or machine specific scans, but are now easily detectable.
Copper theft, for example, which has reached pandemic proportions in South Africa recently, is now a thing of the past as ThruVision will detect this product carried anywhere on a person. Previously it was almost impossible to check all persons leaving the work place for contraband because of the other articles they legitimately carried. In the case of miners, for example, they come out the mine with hard hats, battery packs, safety harness, breathing apparatus etc, which makes it a nightmare for a metal detector to do its job. With ThruVision anything they should not be carrying becomes clearly visible as they walk past.
This system will also play a major role in the security of the country as it can detect items dangerous to the safety of the public, such as vests used to transport explosives for terrorism, or drugs smuggled into the country in the same manner. Suitable applications for this function are typically airports, harbours, border posts and any other avenues into the country.
