No hiding place [CANSEC17D1]

Saskatoon-based International Road Dynamics (IRD, Booth 332) a leader in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) for more than 37 years, specialises in providing protection of assets and infrastructure, and transportation and homeland security.

The company’s systems have been deployed at air force bases, army bases, military installations and shipyards around the world.

IRD also provides security personnel with a fully automated gate inspection system.

Here at CANSEC, IRD is presenting its under vehicle inspection systems – the Under Vehicle Area Scanner (UVAS, pictured) and the Under Vehicle Surveillance System (UVSS).

These security systems are capable of effectively scanning the undercarriage of vehicles to provide and analyse images for explosive devices, suspicious objects or contraband such as drugs and weapons. Built for the harshest environments, they also integrate with biometrics, crash barriers, gate arms, mass notification systems and CCTV.

The UVAS, IRD’s newest offering, automatically scans and displays full colour and/or black and white images of the undercarriage of vehicles with no restrictions on length of vehicles.

In less than three seconds, the scanner automatically provides security personnel with a complete timestamped record that includes a picture of the face of the driver, the licence-plate number, a complete full colour scan of the undercarriage, and automatic identification of anomalies.

The system can scan vehicles while they are stationary or travelling at speeds of up to 75km/h (45mph).

The FLEX series of the UVSS is designed to display, monitor and digitally record crisp, clear digital colour video of a vehicle’s underside. Advanced imaging and LED illumination provide clear, high-resolution video of the vehicle’s underside. Its open architecture allows it to be connected to existing CCTV; transmit video over IP, fibre optics, coax or wireless; and integrate with automatic licence plate recognition and driver image-capture cameras.c
