Advanced Detection Technology - Under Vehicle Inspection Systems and Security Equipment for the Defence Industry

Since 2003, Advanced Detection Technology has provided military, law enforcement and security professionals around the world a complete portfolio of threat detection and access control solutions. Advanced Detection specialises in providing man-portable under vehicle inspection systems (UVIS) for the defence industry. Our aim is to provide quality security equipment while simultaneously improving future technologies to meet the security needs of a fast-moving world.

With hundreds of potential hiding spaces for IEDs, biohazards and other illegal materials, vehicles represent a unique and serious security threat. The portable LowCam™ UVIS units can be deployed by one person in three minutes and allow for rapid and accurate inspections of passenger and commercial vehicle undercarriages -- all from a safe stand-off location. UVIS LowCam™ technology uses high-resolution, digital and colour video cameras with a fully integrated illumination system to provide the user with clear views of potential threats at day and night time. Deep shadows can mask suspicious items, so proper lighting is the key to effective under vehicle inspection.

With Advanced Detection Technology's UVIS you can feel even more secure as all our systems can now be equipped with built-in license plate recognition. All systems can be integrated with other FastGate™ products for a comprehensive plug-n-play access control solution.

Real-time advanced situational awareness

FastGate™ Grasp is a sleek handheld computer that engages security personnel in the access control and tracking process while giving management the ability to analyse daily activities.

This second generation system is lightweight and designed to efficiently link individuals, their vehicles, their passengers and their authorized ID cards in an easy-to-use small handheld device. The FastGate Grasp is ideal for:

  • Military operations and convoys
  • Diplomatic security
  • Law enforcement and security forces
  • Facilities Security Personnel
  • Port Security & Border Control

Information captured by FastGate Grasp is immediately synchronized and validated using a pre-populated database to present security officers with on-screen images and / or alerts when unauthorized individuals or vehicles enter a facility. The system allows for a broad range of detailed reporting capabilities that includes time / date stamped referencing. This portable device has all the conveniences of a cell phone, PDA, DVR, scanner and barcode reader.

Enhanced capabilities of the Grasp include license plate recognition (LPR) and facial recognition. A rapid deployment kit with multiple devices for remote operations can be customised to meet your specific requirements. No other portable access control system incorporates the range of security, access control and communication services that the FastGate Grasp integrates into one, small mobile device.
