Our public event security products help officials achieve these goals. They help combat modern security and terrorist threats and keep the public safe. Real and hoax threats must be considered real until they can be evaluated. Our unique X-ray systems can quickly and accurately differentiate between hoax items and real-threats. This minimises disruption.

X-rays for counter-surveillanceOur x-ray venue security systems help civil and specialist security forces examine the inside of bags, suspect items and vehicles. They can check for bombs, drugs, contraband, knives, guns and other threats.  They can chemically distinguish between diverse types of threat.

Our systems are used worldwide to safeguard from threats ranging from gun / knife violence and terrorism to drugs and alcohol.

All public events can be a target for crime, violence, terrorism, social or political unrest or disruptive hoax threats. A crowd can include VIPs, celebrities or high-profile personnel who may be specially targeted. In order to secure these events both checkpoint and portable security systems may be needed.
