Under vehicle inspection

Under vehicle inspection

An under-vehicle inspection system is generally comprised of still or video cameras mounted within a ramp and used at facility access points, particularly at secure facilities. An under-vehicle inspection system is used to detect threats -- such as bombs -- that are hidden underneath vehicles. Cameras capture images of the undercarriage of the vehicle for manual or automated visual inspection by security personnel or systems.

Under-vehicle inspection systems can be permanent (embedded in the road), fixed (attached to the road), or mobile (portable).

Under vehicle inspection systems are known by the acronyms UVI (under-vehicle inspection), UVIS (under-vehicle inspection systems), AUVIS (automated under-vehicle inspection systems) and MUVIS (mobile under-vehicle inspection systems).

Available "Under-vehicle Inspection" Systems

Under Vehicle Inspection Systems (UVIS) are available in portable and fixed, in-ground configurations. Both models provide clear, panoramic, under-carriage images of vehicles of any heights or weights (can withstand up to 50,000lbs). Well equipped with eight high-resolution IR cameras, images can be captured in direct sunlight or complete darkness. Under Vehicle Inspection Systems come highly specialized depending on environmental requirements including: Portable Units with rapid 6 minute set-up time, UVIS with Air-Debris removal systems to ensure clear images in adverse weather conditions (rain, dust, wind), and Low Profile units for geographical areas that require snowplowing or street sweeping.

Under vehicle Inspection Systems are more highly effective when incorporated with additional security technologies including physical Access Control barriers/gates, biometric applications, surveillance cameras, and/or License Plate Recognition software. The Under Vehicle Inspection Systems, when installed with the additional security technologies, can simultaneously link the vehicle data collected to "any" pre-determined database, such as stolen vehicle list, amber/silver alerts, out-standing warrants, or a "entrance denied" listing.

[http://www.stratechsystems.com/iv_ivacs.asp iVACS®] , a state of the art Under Vehicle Scanning System (UVSS) from [http://www.stratechsystems.com Stratech Systems Limited (Singapore)] to detect and alert the possible danger of abnormalities such as potential bomb packages in the undercarriage of a vehicle. The system allows vehicle inspection with its unique capability to scan vehicle undercarriages, capture high quality images, allow zoom-in capabilities, and automatically compare historical images with newly taken one to automatically detect any discrepancy. It is the ONLY under carriage surveillance system capable of delivering unsurpassed image quality.

The system also integrates other essential security procedures such as vehicle number plate, driver verification and explosive detection into a singular system, hence providing complete, all-in-one security inspection system for total vehicle access.

Through years of research and innovation and working closely with leading security authorities, Stratech’s fourth generation of iVACS® was born. Code named - iVACS® - Gen 4, this advanced UVSS is able to scan all types of vehicles in faster processing time along with the ability to capture high resolution colored images in real time. The new version has been designed with a strong focus on usability, making the system easy to install, easy to configure, and easy to use.
