Crismasecurity partners with Videotec for maximum airport security

Schio, Italy

Crisma Security, a company that specialises in designing security systems for highly critical sites as integrated Navtech Radar with the Ulisse thermal radical range of PTZ thermal cameras manufactured by Videotec, creator of professional video surveillance products.

This combination of advanced technologies aims to offer a unique and flexible solution for optimal management of large-scale critical infrastructures.  The Navtech Radar is an innovative radar device that uses millimetre wave technology, creating a highly automated and reliable system to help protect against intrusion.

The Navtech Radar is able to detect a person in a radius of up to 1000m automatically, both during the day and at night, and in all environmental conditions (rain, fog, snow...). Each radar sensor performs one 360° scan cycle of the monitored area every second. This means that the device is able to precisely map any target objects in the scene that it is surveying (vehicles, people, etc.), their speed and their direction. The sensors can define several parameters with regards the subdivision of the areas to be monitored, with alarm rules for abnormal situations that are customised according to different criteria.

The radar detection is accompanied by the visual surveillance capability of the Ulisse thermal radical, a PTZ thermal camera that offers high functional and mechanical performance and, with a wide field of vision, is capable of capturing images of people and objects even in the dark or during adverse environmental conditions.

The integrated system means that the radar automatically guides the thermal PTZ, and uses software to send the exact coordinates of the target that needs to be followed rapidly and continuously. This provides real-time visual feedback of the detected event.

The interaction between the radar and the PTZ thermal imaging camera is synchronised perfectly. The coordinates given by the radar very quickly guide the PTZ, following the target in a perfect sequence of fast and fluid movements. Constantly sharp images of the scene are made possible thanks to the Ulisse thermal radical’s effective autofocus system, which allows the camera to achieve perfect focus levels quickly.

The integrated system brought together by Crisma Security and Videotec has been tested successfully at an Italian airport where it provided high levels of security while monitoring sensitive areas.

The system provides security managers with quick information on unwanted intrusions, with instant, real-time views of the target’s presence and position in monitored areas. It enables early intervention and ensures total and continuous coverage of external infrastructures.

University takes initiative in pilot biometrics scheme

in September the University of Nottingham will launch a pilot, using fingerprint technology for student registration at compulsory lectures and exams – 40 fingerprint units and 15 USB enrollment readers will be installed. The fingerprint identification readers are developed by TBS and are fully integrated with Nedap’s AEOS, the university’s current physical access control system. Hunter Communications Services is responsible for the implementation.

Cyber security vulnerability check list advises on best practice

Farpointe Data has just posted the first radio frequency identification(RFID) Cybersecurity Vulnerability Checklist for access control manufacturers, distributors, integrators and end users to use to protect their access control systems from becoming hacker gateways to their facilities and IT systems. Knowing what to do is especially important now that government agencies, such as the United States Federal Trade Commission, have begun filing lawsuits against businesses that do not provide good cybersecurity practices.
