Container Automated Monitoring System Component Proof of Concept


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
GateKeeper USA
: 05 August, 2010  (Company News)
The US takes another step forward in mandating worldwide inbound container inspections with a proof of concept having taken place for Gatekeeper’s CAMS project
GateKeeper USA has successfully completed a Proof of Concept (POC) Demonstration of various components to be included in the Container Automated Monitoring System (CAMS). The POC Demonstration was conducted as a field test, as requested by Phoenix Partners.

'We are by nature careful when evaluating any new technology. We are equally selective about the quality of the mandates that we undertake. With this in mind, I lead our due diligence efforts on behalf of Phoenix. The POC met specific criteria as set forth by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with respect to container security. GateKeeper met both the DHS criteria, and our expectations by demonstrating functionality surpassing them each three fold,' stated Lee Davis, Managing Director of Phoenix Partners.

The POC was conducted in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida under the auspices of Phoenix, a member of Florida's First Responder Community, as well as other members of the Investment Banking community.

“This singular event, in a beta configuration, demonstrates that the current 2012 mandate as set forth within the Container Security Initiative (CSI) and the provision in the 9/11 bill that mandated DHS require foreign seaports to scan 100 percent of US containers for radiation and density is now within our grasp,” stated John Leontakianakos, Senior Vice President of GateKeeper USA.

In essence the POC demonstrated and exceeded criteria set forth by The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), under the original Broad Agency Announcement issued by the HSARPA for an Advanced Container Security Device, (ACSD) among others.

“As Mr Davis stated, the demo not only met, but exceeded provisions as mandated in the 9/11 bill for seaport security as well as Secure Freight Initiative (SFI) under Customs and Border Protection (CBP) which manages the Container Security Initiative (CSI). We are very pleased to have the opportunity to demonstrate our team’s capabilities, are very satisfied with the results and look forward to bringing CAMS to market. For and on behalf of our technology partner CSL, we wish to thank those who participated and were in attendance,” stated Mr Leontakianakos
