T5000 System detects objects under clothes

12
Mar '08
Unique security imaging technology that can “see” explosives, liquids,narcotics, weapons, plastics and ceramics hidden under clothing from 25 metres will be unveiled at the Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB) Exhibition on 12 & 13 March 2008, stands E6 and C44.

Developed by ThruVision Ltd, a spin out company of the Science & Technology Facility Council Rutherford Appleton Laboratory(RAL), the T5000 passive terahertz imaging system is set to drastically improve security at high profile sites and uniquely, at outdoor venues such as sporting arenas.

The only commercially available camera of its kind in the world, the T5000 can image both metallic and non-metallic threat objects hidden under clothing on still or moving subjects without revealing any body detail.Compact, rugged, portable, easy-to-use and completely safe, it can be used both indoors and outdoors up to a distance of 25m.

Operating well beyond the range of traditional X-ray scanning & metal detector systems, the T5000 is designed for the protection of human life and property at key political, business, tourist and economic infrastructure sites. It delivers a powerful new capability for security personnel at international airports, public transport facilities, large sporting events, check point control installations and other high-security points of interest.

Furthermore, subjects can be still or moving, reducing the frequent problem of crowd 'bottlenecks'. ThruVision's passive imaging technology stems from a collaborative European Space Agency (ESA)project which was based on original research carried out over many years by UK astronomers,including those at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory to study dying stars.
