Applications for Passive Millimeter Wave Detection
Millivision’s passive millimeter wave threat detection systems delivers reliable, safe, privacy-sensitive security screenings that do not interrupt the normal flow of travel and commerce. Millivision’s patented technology is uniquely applicable to a wide variety of security checkpoint situations.
With throughput rates of 250 to 900 people per hour, Millivision’s Passive Millimeter Wave Imager can reliably screen for concealed objects and potential threats without disrupting the efficient flow of traffic in airports, train stations, customs/immigration checkpoints and commuter terminals. The ability to scan each and every person walking by a passive millimeter wave (PMMW) camera effectively eliminates the questionable practices of random searches and profiling. Millivision’s totally safe technology, emits no radiation whatsoever and is safe for operators and subjects—including pregnant women and children.
Millivision’s threat detection systems can be easily integrated into the existing security systems at military installations. Unlike conventional detection systems, Millivision’s Passive Millimeter Wave Imager has the ability to detect a wide array of weapons and materials hidden on the human body, such as ceramic knives, composite guns and plastic explosives. Addressing the unique needs of high-risk military targets, Millivision’s Stand-Off system can scan a subject at a safe distance of 4 meters with a high degree of reliability.
In order for government to operate effectively, employees and the public must be granted access to a wide variety of facilities, including courthouses, city halls, and federal or municipal office buildings. Millivision’s detection systems offer optimal performance in these situations, including reliable detection rates, safe operation, privacy-sensitivity, configurable layout, and covert deployment.
Penal institutions are increasingly concerned about inmate security and staff safety. Prison populations continue to grow—especially in the United States—without a corresponding increase in staffing. Millivision’s cost-effective security solutions are easy to install and operate, making them attractive to budget-strapped organizations. The passive millimeter wave technology used to detect weapons and contraband hidden beneath clothing is totally safe for both guards and inmates, even after prolonged or repeated exposure.
Millivision’s detection systems help private companies to protect both people and assets. Both the Walk-By System 350 and the Stand-Off System 350 include covert installation options, and can be configured to work within the architectural requirements of existing buildings. Business entities that are open to the public—such as hotels, tourist attractions and company headquarters—can discretely scan visitors for weapons and other contraband concealed under clothing.
Millivision’s whole body imager can prevent inventory losses in both retail and warehouse situations. Passive millimeter wave technology can uncover dishonest or careless behavior on the part of either personnel or customers by detecting a wide range of materials, including, metal, plastic, ceramic, liquid or gel. Millivision’s Automatic Threat Detection Tool indicates the presence of suspicious objects hidden beneath clothing while eliminating the need for operators to view potentially revealing millimeter wave images.
