Radio-wave ProVision 2 security body scanner manufactured by L-3 Communications Security & Detection Systems (USA) is designed to scan people and automatically detect objects concealed on the body and clothes of a person hazardous and prohibited materials, items.
ProVision 2 transparent walls allow security personnel to keep an eye on the scanned person excluding transfer of prohibited items or monkeyshines during screening.
Due to L-3 advanced technologies and developments in the area of millimeter waves portal has no restrictions for detection. ProVision 2 detects absolutely all types of materials including sheet explosives, powder, high power explosives, items made of liquid, gel, ceramics, plastics, rubber, glass, wood and paper. Besides detecting of hazardous items ProVision 2 is designated to prevent embezzlement of funds, stealing of documents, material values (from food and make-up to salts of precious metals and chips) from the territory of secured facilities, and besides to exclude carrying of contraband, removable media and other prohibited items.
Millimeter waves used are absolutely safe for people. ProVision 2 is safe for people compared to X-ray TV scanner.
Capacity level of ProVision 2 scanner is second to none. In less than 2 seconds the system makes circular scanning of a person. On full duration of scanning and result output in 7 seconds ProVision 2 capacity is 200-300 man/hour.
A scanner does not display or store the image of a scanned person. Suspicious areas are marked on a dummy which is the same for all scanned people and displayed on operator’s screen without analyzing the images compared to X-ray TV scanners which significantly reduces human factor. Other image forming technologies receive during scanning only one view in one direction and for full coverage several scans are required. Time required for correct position of a person, scanning and image analysis significantly reduces capacity.
Network operation provides additional level of privacy protection because the operator who analyzes the image does not know which portal it came from. Depending on availability of free space the operator’s workstation can be directly near the system or at a distance from it.
