GateKeeper CAMS Detects PETN in Air Freight


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 November, 2010  (Technical Article)
Detection specialists comment on the Yemen bomb scare on cargo flight which could have been prevented with Container Automated Monitoring technology from GateKeeper
GateKeeper USA previously announced its CAMS (Container Automated Monitoring System) device has the ability to detect and alert authorities to PETN presence. Had CAMS been deployed, PETN would have been discovered before the packages departed from Yemen.

The technology incorporated within GateKeeper’s CAMS devices, has the ability to detect not only PETN, but also all known WMDs currently in the Department of Homeland Security database. CAMS can scan 24/7 and transmit alerts sensing the presence of as little as nanogram levels of trace material. Since CAMS technology starts to scan immediately even before any cargo container is sealed, an alert for PETN and other dangerous substances, would have been detected and the proper authorities alerted, within moments, thus allowing ample time for those authorities to prevent the flight originating from Yemen.

CAMS technology is 100% American conceived, developed and manufactured, and is currently licensed on an exclusive basis to GateKeeper USA to target the $160 Billion maritime container security sector. “As over 90% of commercial goods are delivered to the US via maritime containers, the security threat to the United States that goes undetected would be reduced significantly with the use of CAMS and the threat immediately reported, should violent extremists choose to utilize maritime channels for delivery of hazardous goods to our shores. This Yemen event further solidifies the need for the immediate implementation of CAMS devices within our supply chain,” stated James Wishart, CEO of GateKeeper USA.
