“At AKBA Technology and Defense Industries, our primary objective is to bring this system to Turkey for the continued existence and security of our country. We believe that Human Security Radar will deliver a new dimension in fight against terror”, says Sirzat Balin, Co-Founder of AKBA. “AKBA’s goal is to bring the new generation security solutions to our country. Essentially we strive to provide and produce tailor-made solutions for the requirements of our customers in the public and private sectors by bringing niche security and defence technologies to our country, particularly in the protection of border regions, pipelines, refineries, and similar critical areas”.

Apstec is a leading innovator specializing in the development of technology for the detection of weapons and person-borne improvised explosive devices (PBIEDs). Apstec’s HSR™ delivers cutting-edge technology with the capability to dramatically improve the security of vulnerable crowded places. The fully automatic walkthrough system is the groundbreaking innovation that extends secure perimeters without causing delay to intensive people flow. The maturity of the technology – in development since 2005 – and the completion of numerous successful trials that have demonstrated an exceptionally high accuracy rate and unparalleled throughput with the capacity to screen over 10,000 people per hour make HSR™ a unique and compelling solution to one of the most significant security challenges of the modern era – securing vulnerable crowded places from terrorist attacks.
