AVIAN Heartbeat Detector™
Penal Institutions | Military Installations | Nuclear Facilities | International Borders & Checkpoints | Other High security facilities
The Advanced Vehicle Interrogation And Notification System detects the presence of persons hidden in vehicles. Using data from special sensors, AVIAN finds the shock wave generated by the beating heart, which couples to any surface or object with which the body is in contact. AVIAN collects the data and analyzes them using advanced signal processing algorithms to detect a hidden person in less than 1 minute.
The AVIAN System consists of an industrial personal computer loaded with specially developed software, a touch-screen monitor and special sensors. The operator uses the touch-screen to select vehicle type prior to beginning the vehicle scan. The processed data provide the operator with a pass or search indication. The completed search can take as little as 14 seconds after the sensors are placed on the vehicle. The system has proven to be 100% effective and reliable in detecting human presence under ideal conditions (protection from moderate to high winds is required to eliminate false positive indications).
AVIAN is a cost effective method to accurately and quickly search large or small vehicles, regardless of contents, for hidden persons. The one screen operation with icons makes training a simple matter that can be accomplished in less than one hour. The computer system requires no maintenance.
The cost of AVIAN is less than the cost of a single corrections officer or portal security guard. It is accurate and reliable and provides the officer with the capability to rapidly search fully loaded vehicles without moving or disturbing the vehicle contents.
