The EN50155 standard determines the operation, design, construction, and testing of electronic equipment deployed for rolling stocks and railway applications. To ensure reliable performance under the unexpected power anomalies, such as voltage variations, power interruptions, and supply changeover, Lanner’s railway computing gateways have been EN50155 certified and undergone a series of environmental testing.
This innovative solution captures images of the user’s 4 fingertips from a single wave of the hand in less than a second. Its unique dynamic acquisition capability allows subjects to be ‘on the move’ during fingerprint capture. MorphoWave Desktop is therefore unchallenged in a wide range of applications where high-speed enrollment and matching, as well as convenience and security are key requirements. This includes border control, flow management and securing sensitive sites. By vastly reducing capture time to less than a second, efficiency and throughput are increased without compromising accuracy.
Surveon Technology is pleased to announce that the world leading maritime and naval CCTV systems integrator has chosen Surveon as their partner for surveillance application. The weather conditions on the sea are always changing, it can be challenging for the outdoor cameras to be able to function properly and record clear images all the time. Surveon 2MP CAM3371EM can handle harsh outdoor conditions, ensuring video footage can still be available in the environment of temperature from −40°C (−40°F) to 50°C (122°F) and 90%+ humidity.
I have mentioned in this space before that I have the opportunity to travel a lot and that this has afforded me an excellent view into how airports are run. But my perspective is not limited to their inner workings. In fact, from my office here in Montreal, I can see the O6L and 24R runways at the P.E. Trudeau airport. This means that, every once in a while, I get to watch these feats of engineering and technology move through the air. And I am reminded of the incredible precision required to get so many planes safely through take-off and landing every day. At the same time, I also know that any disruption on the airfield —no matter how small— can delay flights or threaten security.
With aircrafts, cargos, passengers, luggage and store operation in one huge area, airport operation is one of the most complex tasks. With so many people and things bustling around, security becomes the top priority for every section from check-in areas, passport control areas to runways in the airport. Surveon airport solutions help the administration bureau to deploy security at the highest level. The complete solutions include wide areas covering cameras with advanced video functions such as WDR, RAID NVR with large extended storage, and the best C/P value VMS with built-in 12 video analytics, keeping airport a safe environment.
Dedrone, the market and technology leader in airspace security, announced that its team of Echodyne Corporation, Squarehead Technologies and Battelle, won first place at ThunderDrone’s “Game of Drones” outdoor demonstration at Nellis Air Force Base and AFWERX enclave, June 18-20. Hosted by AFWERX, Team Dedrone bested five other teams in the last of three ThunderDrone rapid prototyping events focusing on countering small, unmanned aerial drones. Team Dedrone successfully demonstrated the capabilities of a layered detection, tracking, classification and mitigation solution that defends protected airspace against aerial drone threats.
