Secure One is a company specialised in bomb detection systems in order to protect important locations such as police and military organisations or locations, as well as events, against attacks and threats. The system, the UVIScan®, scans the underside of vehicles for unusual items.
This system originally worked only with cameras, but the customer wanted to expand this with magnet detection, in order to also be able to detect magnetic bombs quickly. This could be realised with magnetic field sensors from our producer Measurement Specialties. However, after various visits it was soon discovered that the company was actually seeking a partner that could develop not only the sensors, but a complete system.
Together with the client and our producer, we developed a complete magnet scanning system in which many hardware and software aspects were applied. The system consists of a strip containing 28 sensors and software that simply makes irregularities detected during a scan below the vehicle visible on a monitor, using colour differences. The scanning system is built into a vehicle ramp.
Our magnetic detection system is an optional extra that users can order for the existing UVIScan® system.
