PATSCAN TMS Covert Weapons Detection

The PATSCAN TMS detects concealed weapons on people and in bags, preventing mass casualty attacks on the general public in high-traffic facilities and venues. The PATSCAN TMS autonomous detection system can identify specific individuals carrying concealed weapons into secured private or public spaces, utilizing its unique passive sensor array. PATSCAN TMS sensors can be installed at schools, stadiums, concert halls, shopping centers and other entryways into private, public or secured buildings.

The PATSCAN TMS offers covert operational deployment allowing for uninterrupted pedestrian traffic. Target-selective detection along with covert configuration deployment allows for rapid processing through security checkpoints unlike conventional metal detector portals.

PATSCAN TMS utilizes validated dynamic magnetic moment technology primarily developed for military applications. The high-sensitivity, fully-networked PATSCAN TMS has been optimized and adapted for urban security settings. The targeted capability includes threat localization, overlaying the threat object position onto an image utilizing artificial intelligence (Al) enhanced target recognition. Continuously evolving algorithms are remotely upgradeable to periodically provide new targets and threat objects of interest.

How It Works

  • Weapon Detection: Designed to detect large barreled weapons, such as rifles, semi-auto /assault/ shotguns, etc…as well as I EDs with significant metal shrapnel elements.
  • Easy Operation: Operates autonomously without compromising system sensitivity, or individual privacy.
  • Detection Performance: Superior detection performance with low power.
  • Technology: Uses passive dynamic magnetic moment technology to detect metallic signatures moving through the gateway or portal space (approximately 6′ wide).
  • Sensor Array: Passive magnetic moment sensors arrays are network connected.
  • Al/ Machine Learning: Utilizes PATSCAN’s state-of-the art cognitive detection software with advanced signal processing algorithms.
  • Non-Threat Items: Technology automatically eliminates non-threat items such as mobile phones (per client requirements), as well as non-moving objects around gateway / portal, such as doors, elevators, and cars.
  • Deployment Options: Can be covertly or overtly deployed, indoors or outdoors. Covert deployments may include hallway walls, door entries, nondescript bollard or fixture units, ceilings or floors. Proven Solution: Over two years of continuous operation and client validation.
