30 October 2018 – today Apstec Systems® (Apstec®) announced that Human Security Radar® (HSR™) The First Fully Automatic Real-Time Mass People Screening Solution received tremendous interest from potential customers and partners during the SEECAT exhibition in Tokyo October 10-12, 2018.

The Special Equipment Exhibition & Conference for Anti-Terrorism event (SEECAT) in Tokyo, Japan is the premier event in Japan dedicated to counter terror technologies and innovations.   Terrorist incidents involving the combined use of firearms and explosive devices have highlighted the increasing unpredictability of terrorism while exposing the serious shortcomings of existing security measures. To stay ahead of these security challenges, society needs innovative solutions that address the significant gap in current capabilities.  With Japan hosting a number of major events in the coming years, including the 2019 Rugby World Cup, 2019 G20 Summit and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics the interest in finding innovative technologies to combat terror and improve security for public places is very strong.

HSR ® The First Fully Automatic Real-Time Mass People Screening Solution provides seamless security for protecting public places from terrorist attacks. The fully automatic walkthrough system uniquely combines unparalleled high throughput, speed and accuracy to deliver the most effective mass people screening solution on the global market. HSR simultaneously screens multiple subjects in real-time for explosive devices and firearms hidden under clothes and in backpacks without the need for an operator to inspect suspect materials.

“We are seeing tremendous interest in HSR’s unique capabilities from the Japanese market as a potential technology to help them meet the challenges of ensuring public safety during the upcoming globally significant events.,” said Johan Adler, Apstec’s Head of Asia.
