A new-generation scanning system that greatly improves accuracy, efficiency and safety of security screening processes worldwide
SECURITY MARKET IN TRADE AND TRAVEL
Billions of parcels and suitcases travel around the world. 85 billion parcels every year. 2800 parcels every second. And the numbers keep growing fast. But we simply do not know what is exactly inside. Explosives? Drugs?
In the USA every year more than 70.000 people die from opioid overdoses. Of which a large amount is transported via international mail and parcels.
Currently 4 Billion Euro is spent yearly on security in the global parcel market alone, of which 2 Billion Euro is spent on equipment.
The incremental growth of parcel transportation and increased security risks, puts a high demand on the security screening of parcels worldwide. The current screening methods are not accurate enough and inefficient.
This is a very serious threat to safety, health and society.
CURRENT SCREENING PROCESSES ARE INACCURATE
Current screening technologies (mostly based on X-rays and CT-technology) provide limited identification of parcel content. They can only find anomalies and offer inadquate material recognition.
This leads to high (FAR) false alarm rates of 20 to 30 %, resulting in costly human intervention and the use of sniffer dogs to verify what is inside. This process is labour intensive and slow, and leads to high inefficiency and costs.
This limited detection capability also leads to false negatives, meaning that illicit goods are not detected at all, posing a significant threat to society.
SOLUTION: DYNAXION’S NEW-GENERATION SECURITY SCANNER
The Dynaxion scanner can tell you exactly what is inside a parcel or suitcase, even when hidden or packed in metal.
The Dynaxion system goes beyond the current X-Ray and CT technologies. We do not need people to look at images and we do not look at densities. We make spectra and the algorithms define the exact material identification.
Dynaxion can see the difference between cocaine or milk powder, syrup or nitro-glycerine.
Dynaxion makes the world a safer and healthier place.
At the end of 2020 Dynaxion will demonstrate the main functionalities of the scanner with a Proof of Concept system. A full system prototype will be built in 2021. The first commercial product is expected in 2023.
Dynaxion’s primary focus is to detect explosives and illegal drugs in parcels and suitcases. Within this application the focus will be on alarm resolution (the secondary screening process, with high costs and inefficiencies).
Dynaxion sees large potential in scaling up towards LD3 aircraft containers, palletized freight, large mailbags and sea containers.
