Helping to establish the highest levels of site safety and security for end-users, Hikvision, a supplier of innovative video surveillance products and solutions, has launched a new range of fixed and portable Under-Vehicle Surveillance Systems (UVSS).

Under vehicle surveillance

Fully digitally based, the UVSS have been specifically designed to scrutinise the undercarriage of vehicles - offering a fast and effective means for security personnel to examine moving vehicles, and all with minimal disruption to traffic flow.

To address differing application requirements, Hikvision has independently developed two types of UVSS, one fixed model and one portable. Both models can accurately capture an image of the underside of a moving vehicle, to provide highly detailed, critical security monitoring.

Crime prevention

Easy to install, the new Hikvision UVSS can be used to automatically screen every vehicle entering or leaving a site, with popular applications including prison ‘mantraps’, customs border checkpoints, secure car park entrances, and many more.

At crowded airports, high-volume venues, large-scale events, public places, and high security facilities, it’s well known that criminals may attempt to use vehicles for a wide range of nefarious purposes – such as hiding or smuggling illegal items. In this scenario, UVSS can be deployed to quickly and accurately identify hidden threats, contraband, or the smuggling of persons.

Fixed and portable models

For fixed applications, the Hikvision MV-PD-030001-02 under-vehicle surveillance system can integrate with existing security system to provide automated display and video storage of the underneath of cars and heavy vehicles.

Both UVSS model versions display a super-wide field of view and can be relied upon to effectively prevent the intrusion of hidden under-vehicle bombs

Providing flexible location under-vehicle surveillance, the Hikvision MV-PD-030001-03 ‘all-in-one’ portable UVSS provides the same automatic collection of underside vehicle high-definition images, display and storage as the fixed model. Comprising ANPR camera, display equipment, and auxiliary control equipment, the portable UVSS model is the ideal choice to secure public venues, hotel entrances, and other temporary application under-vehicle chassis surveillance needs.

Weapon and bomb detection

Both UVSS model versions display a super-wide field of view and can be relied upon to effectively prevent the intrusion of hidden under-vehicle bombs, weapons, biochemical dangerous goods, and unauthorised people, entering or exiting restricted places. Multiple modules combine to form each UVSS, making the configuration of customised solutions simple. Providing a high-level of access security, the systems can be integrated with rising barriers, rising ramps, traffic lights and existing security control room equipment.

Featuring Hikvision industrial-grade high-definition camera imaging, the new UVSS offer security personnel robust search functionality to easily identify vehicles by licence plate number or time of day. The system can be used as discrete vehicle chassis detection equipment to perform security and safety inspections on the underside of vehicles at entrances to airports, harbours, embassies, police stations, warehouses, petrochemical facilities, military facilities, arenas and many other security critical sites.
