Chemring EOD is delighted to announce that they have won a significant contract to provide a number of their VehicleScan systems to Mexico in support of the 2011 Pan American Games. VehicleScan is an under vehicle surveillance system providing a safe and effective method for impoving security at key facilities and vulnerable locations.

Chemring EOD produces a comprehensive range of counter threat solutions, to both military and civil environments and will provide enhanced security at a number of locations. The Pan American Games are taking place in Guadalajara city, the capital of the state of Jalisco, located in the western part of the Mexican Republic.

The Pan American Games are a major event in the Americas featuring summer and formerly winter sports, in which thousands of athletes participate in a variety of competitions. The Pan American Games are the second largest multi-sport event after the Summer Olympics.

VehicleScan will integrate perfectly into the existing Pan American Games security network, allowing for minimal disruption to security operations during operation and adding increased capability for the user.

VehicleScan has been designed to be deployed for both a mobile and static use; mobile is used for rapid deployment, as it can be easily transported to any location. Static systems can protect a facility 24 hours a day, seven days a week , monitoring all traffic entering and exiting a site where it can be used to identify IEDs, weapons, drugs, contraband, and hidden people.

VehicleScan has an impressive track record of being the product of choice to support the following high-profile events: 2008 Olympics in Beijing, the FIFA World Cup in 2010, G20 Summits and other key facilities around the world.

Chemring EOD’s sales and marketing director Paul Taylor comments: “The security of high profile events is important and we are therefore delighted to be able to support the 2011 Pan American Games in this way. It is a great honour to be associated with such a high-profile event on the international stage. VehicleScan has been shown to be the top choice solution for improving security at vehicle access points.”
