TSA and Digital Barriers to deploy passive smart detection technology at US airports

Digital Barriers, a provider of visually intelligent solutions for surveillance and security, has secured a contract with the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to deploy its ThruVis solution for the detection of objects such as weapons and explosives concealed under clothing.

ThruVis is a highly sensitive camera that can be deployed in various settings, including airport terminals, stadia and event venues, to identify potential threats in real time without disrupting crowd throughput. According to Digital Barriers, the solution proved to be 100% successful in identifying suicide vests and weapons concealed under clothing during independent government testing.

The solution also includes automatic threat detection to remove the need for manual camera operation. ThruVis can detect metal or plastic weapons, explosives, liquids, drugs and currency. The solution is portable, requires no infrastructure, and can be set up in minutes. It is also completely passive and non-invasive, revealing no sensitive anatomical details.

Zak Doffman, CEO of Digital Barriers, said, “ThruVis completely changes our ability to protect so-called soft targets from terrorist attack. Now for the first time, after 10 years and tens of millions of dollars in public and private investment, we can genuinely detect concealed weapons and explosives being carried into crowded public spaces, onto transport networks, or into airports. No other technology anywhere in the world can match ThruVis for performance and usability, as has been categorically proven in recent independent testing.”
