The Camero Company of Israel, part of the SK Group, is introducing its EasyCheck system. EasyCheck enables real-time detection of objects that are concealed under clothing, whether metallic or not.

The system’s primary applications are the prevention of terror, smuggling, theft and drugs. Objects that are detectable by the system include explosives, weapons, illegal drugs, liquids, powders, gels, and other unauthorized items – whether or not they contain metallic components. Since large numbers of people can be checked in a short period, the system can be deployed in airports, stadium entrances, mass transportation facilities, office buildings, and other venues.

The system detects objects automatically, thereby obviating the need for visual identification by the inspector. Any threats identified by the automatic detection mechanism are presented on a model of the human body, thus avoiding the problem of privacy rights. Moreover, images of people are neither displayed nor saved by the system.

The structure of the system and its unique algorithms enable full coverage of the human body while passing through the system. The automatic inspection covers 360 degrees around the body. EasyCheck’s unique features allow people to keep all their clothing on during the inspection – including coats, jackets, leather items, etc.

Camero has developed a novel approach, based on arrays of broadband radio sensors (Ultra Wideband – UWB) and micro power for high-resolution 3D imaging. The relatively low frequencies at which the sensors work enables a high level of penetration, thus supporting applications in which the company is involved – imaging through walls and under clothing.

According to Camero’s CEO, Amir Beeri, "The system provides the highest level of security while being simple and convenient for both the people being checked and the inspector." He added that a few weeks ago, the first EasyCheck systems were sold abroad.
