The vehicle scanning in a new four lanes is to monitor the Sussex airport’s traffic, including staff, maintenance and catering vehicles. It’s replacing the ‘mirror on a stick’ approach, the firm adds.
VehicleScan delivers colour images of the underside of a vehicle with millimetre-scale detail, the makers report. Using Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), the product will cross check each vehicle against the airport database to ensure all vehicles are approved to access the airfield. ANPR will also enable Gatwick to report on vehicle queue times, which can then be used to improve efficiency of staffing rotas, as well as better understand who is on and off site.
Chemring also offers CCTV, standalone ANPR, and site access control equipment. Visit www.chemringts.com.
