POOLE, England, August 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Pentonville prison has awarded Chemring Technology Solutions a contract to supply its VehicleScan surveillance technology.
VehicleScan will support the security team in the identification of any objects concealed under vehicles that may pose a threat. The new system provides sharper images of the underside of vehicles which improves the time taken to review scans and significantly reduces waiting times for vehicles entering the prison site.
Using Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), VehicleScan will maintain a detailed database of vehicles and their images, and will alert an operator to any changes on a vehicle's underside during subsequent visits to the base. The new system will also identify any previously blacklisted vehicle attempting to enter the site.
VehicleScan is the world's most advanced under vehicle surveillance solution, using high-resolution line-scan technology to deliver full colour images of the underside of a vehicle with millimetre-scale detail. VehicleScan is part of the wider Site Security Solutions available from Chemring Technology Solutions, which also includes CCTV, standalone ANPR, and site access control equipment.
