ThruVis raises the bar for high-throughput screening
Screening rate of up to 1,000 people per hour achieved at peak times in a single ThruVis security lane
27th March 2017
Digital Barriers plc (AIM: DGB), the specialist provider of visually intelligent solutions to the global surveillance, security and safety markets, is pleased to confirm its ThruVis public safety solution has successfully and uniquely achieved a screening rate of up to 1,000 people per hour at peak times – estimated to be more than five times faster than traditional security lanes. There is no other technology available in the world today that can match this rate of high-throughput performance. This screening rate was achieved during the UK Government Security & Policing event in Farnborough, where ThruVis was part of an official high throughput screening demonstration.
ThruVis delivers a level of performance, flexibility and capability that cannot be matched by any other technology in the world. Unlike existing technology, it detects all types of items concealed in clothing, including non-metallics like explosives and ceramic knives, at stand-off distances of up to 10m. It is mobile, rapidly deployable, and operates without compromising people throughput, safety or privacy. Of equal importance, it is operationally ready for use, as confirmed by the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) who have already conducted successful deployments in preparation for a wider rollout.
The unsurpassed screening rate of up to 1,000 people per hour comes at the same time as ThruVis has again achieved a 100% detection rate in blind trials with government agencies in Asia Pacific, who continue to plan wide scale deployments of the capability over the coming years.
In aviation, ThruVis delivers the potential to materially enhance the screening of passengers in expedited security lanes and of staff using employee security channels. In the public safety market it provides an additional layer of security for mass transit terminals and crowded public spaces that have been the subject of recent attacks.
ThruVis can also now be deployed alongside the company’s SmartVis Face solution, to raise immediate alarms when concealed threats or people who may present a security risk enter protected locations. SmartVis Face has been designed to deliver high-throughput, standoff screening against known watch lists, and it was also successfully showcased at the UK Government Security & Policing event to government security and defence delegations from around the world.
“ThruVis is a game-changing technology that meets a pressing security need without disrupting people flow or detracting from the visitor or traveller experience,” said Zak Doffman, CEO of Digital Barriers. “The addressable market for this solution is now being measured in many thousands of units over the coming years, which will deliver a very significant payback on the ten years of development and more than £100m of investment that has resulted in this unique technology.”
