Mobile Checkpoint Screening Van

The ever-rising security threats for civil structures worldwide have made it necessary to re-evaluate existing solutions for screening of people and luggage entering public events, critical infrastructure or mass gatherings.

For this reason, HARTMANN Spezialkarosserien and unival® group have formed a joint brand, MSS – MOBILE SCREENING SOLUTIONS.

With the development of MSS we have clearly had the goal to achieve the following milestones:

  • 100% screening of all people and items entering the access perimeter
  • 100% detection of prohibited items (weapons, explosives and drugs)
  • Complete access security deployment within five minutes, wherever necessary

Together with a consortium of top-level German and international security, as well as screening equipment manufacturers, we have been able to develop and manufacture the world’s first complete modular checkpoint van, the MSS SCREENING VAN, reaching beyond existing security milestones.

For larger military bases we can offer customised MSS SCREENING TRUCK versions, providing highest protection while ensuring high-throughput screening capabilities, with 100% detection of prohibited goods. Based on Mercedes-Benz trucks such as the Actros, Zetros or Unimog (military versions), we are able to extend existing screening capabilities and include all the required military features.

As every civilian person or visitor (such as translators, local contacts, suppliers) to a military base needs to be thoroughly screened without compromising base security, the MSS SCREENING VANS are especially useful for every military base around the world. Deploy complete access security at the outer perimeter within minutes, even at Forward Operations Bases (FOBs).

Therefore, we offer for our military customers special MSS SCREENING VEHICLES military versions, in close collaboration with MERCEDES-BENZ DEFENCE VEHICLES.
