Vehicle Inspection System Unveiled
Edited by Robert H. Williams
A remotely operated under-vehicle inspection system that offers
true-color imagery and up to 12-times magnification has been developed
by Northrop Grumman Corp. The system also provides database search
functions, and is geared to seek out and identify hidden contraband
UVIS, as it is called, can perform trend analysis and produce a
history of every vehicle that is inspected. “The ‘hit
list’ functionality automatically signals the user if a vehicle
is on a criminal watch list,” explains a spokesman.
The stand-alone inspection system also has been designed to permit
an operator to be separated from the scanner by as much as 500 feet.
