Millimeter Wave Object Detection and People

Con Tecnologa

GEN 2 technology by Brijot Imaging Systems, Inc. is composed of a real-time Radiometric

Scanner that images electromagnetic millimeter wave energy, an integrated full-motion video
camera, on-board computer, and sophisticated, intelligent video detection engine. Using the GEN
2 value-added detection engines capability, your security screeners will automatically be alerted
and can easily pinpoint concealed objects without intrusive, time consuming, personnel- intensive
and potentially dangerous physical searches, while allowing security screeners and law
enforcement officers to perform virtual pat downs from a distance without direct contact. GEN2
provides an effective means to manage threats before they become harmful incidents.
GEN 2 Characteristics and Benefits of Passive Millimeter Waves (PMMW)

GEN 2 Passive Millimeter Wave GEN 2 systems detect both metallic and non-metallic objects as follows:
