Description: Active Media hired Digital Hyper Studios to create a corporate style video illustrating how GateKeeper Security’s product worked. This was more of a corporate animation to showcase the design of GateKeeper Security system. The idea was to show a scenerio in how their product would be used. We showcased one scenerio where the driver of the vehicle passed inspection and a second that failed inspection. Here is a snippet of info from Gatekeepersecurity.com and our video can be found on their site as well.
One of the biggest threats around the world is when terrorists use vehicles, especially “trusted vehicles” to smuggle weapons, explosives, contraband, etc. into secure facilities of all kinds. “Trusted vehicles” belong to employees, regular suppliers and frequent guests who are known to the facility and therefore “trusted.” Terrorists know that these trusted vehicles and drivers often do not undergo the same rigorous inspection that all other unknown vehicles must go through before entering a secure facility. All a terrorist needs to do is to know where a trusted employee lives and parks their vehicle. Then the terrorist can attach contraband to the undercarriage and later have an accomplice inside the secure area remove the contraband after the vehicle has cleared inspection and entered the secure facility. Over time, the terrorists inside accumulate the weapons and/or aggregate enough small quantities of explosives into much larger devices capable of catastrophic destruction. If a vehicle is stopped because contraband is discovered, there is no one to point to because the trusted employee was not involved. All the terrorist has lost is a small amount of explosives or a weapon, etc. Secure areas could consist of places such as government offices, hotels, refineries and chemical plants, or transportation centers such as airports, rail and bus stations, etc. All of these “secure areas” generally have one thing in common: a labor force to assist with general duties such as cleaning, trash removal and receiving of goods, etc. (i.e., people with plenty of ability and time to access parking lots to remove contraband and store it).
Gatekeeper’s technology can automatically identify weapons, explosives and contraband planted on the undercarriage of a vehicle alerting the security forces to the threat and denying entry to the secure facility until the threat is removed.
