Chemring EOD will be demonstrating their new VehicleScan System at the Policing and Security show in Farnborough, UK, from 31 January to 2 February 2012.

VehicleScan is an under vehicle surveillance system providing a safe and effective method for improving security at key facilities and vulnerable locations. The new version of the system (V2.0) has an updated graphical user interface as well as an upgraded image comparison capability. This enhances the detection capabilities of the system.

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. VehicleScan has an impressive track record of being the product of choice to support the protection of key critical buildings and high-profile events. This has included G20 Summits, the FIFA World Cup, and the Pan American games in 2011.

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 IED’s, weapons, drugs, contraband and hidden people. The new versions of the system have already been delivered to European customers and the feedback has been extremely favourable.

Chemring EOD’s managing director, Robert Hill, comments: "The security of key facilities and high profile events is vitally important. It is therefore important that we continue to invest in our solutions so that they can counter the latest threats. VehicleScan version 2.0 is already in operational use with European customers and the feedback has been extremely complimentary. VehicleScan has been shown to be the top choice solution for improving security at vehicle access points throughout the world."
