Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) Virtual BoothContains 1 Component(s)
Welcome to the Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) Virtual Exhibit Booth.
Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) is a security technology manufacturer based in Boxborough, Massachusetts to address current and future threats to aviation and checkpoints. Our DETECT™ 1000 Computed tomography-based x-ray systems provides an excellent platform to address both current and future threats. IDSS currently has the DETECT™ 1000 checkpoint system which is currently being deployed, with additional systems in development for hold baggage and cargo applications. In a post pandemic environment, the use of CT technology at checkpoints minimizes the handling of bags and articles through the ability to conduct virtual screening and searches of bags and articles. The implementation of CT technology offers enhanced security for explosives detection and the development of Artificial Intelligence algorithms for the detection of Prohibited Items and Narcotics continue to enhance the capability of the CT systems for years to come in a variety of applications. The key features of the DETECT™ 1000 with its high-resolution images and ability to address current and future needs yield the most effective long-term CT based platform.
Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) was founded in 2012 and is focused on the development, production, deployment and support of advanced Computer Tomography (CT) based security solutions. IDSS is headquartered with development and production facilities in Boxborough, MA.
IDSS customers include airports, the TSA, airlines and government agencies requiring advanced technology for automated explosive and contraband detection. We currently are deploying our DETECT™ 1000 Checkpoint System which is both TSA and ECAC C3 Certified. IDSS is also developing additional security systems for Hold Baggage, Air Cargo screening and continued advancements in algorithm development for explosives, prohibitive items and narcotics detection. IDSS also won the US DHS Opioid Detection Challenge through applying the DETECT™ 1000 imaging system with Artificial Intelligence driven algorithms to provide the best system capability and maturity to the problem of narcotics detection in parcels for use in not only in postal rooms but also in airport and customs environments.
Integrated Defense and Security Solutions (IDSS) was founded in 2012 specifically to develop high performance, next generation scanners to transform threat detection and security capabilities world-wide. Our systems are solutions that automate and optimize security and operations through Computed tomography-based x-ray systems which allow for the virtual searches of items being scanned. The DETECTTM 1000 was developed for high security checkpoints with aviation, narcotics and infrastructure applications. Additional systems are being developed for applications in hold baggage and cargo.
The DETECTTM 1000 generates high resolution three-dimensional images of the item while analyzing its contents with dual-energy volumetric material measurement techniques. The superior imaging performance of the DETECTTM 1000 combined with our team’s extensive experience in developing threat detection algorithms allowed us to exceed detection requirements while maintaining a low false-alarm rate.
The DETECTTM 1000 high resolution images allow for optimum assessment by the algorithms and the operators, in addition to supporting the effective segmentation of objects and accurate measurements of those objects. The lower the resolution the less accurate the measurements. Performance should not rely on Material Density alone for identifying whether an object is a threat and have at least one other technology to facilitate more accurate measurements. The DICOS-2 image standard provides for an open platform for the bag images which allows for ease of working with 3rd party providers to ensure the optimum performance for our customers.
The ability to incorporate orthogonal discriminators such as dual energy allows an automated detection system to optimize performance for detection and low false alarms.
The DETECTTM 1000 has a throughput capability of greater than 500 bags per hour while maintaining radiation safety limits (continuous operation excluding any operator review) to support operational needs. The ability to meet throughput needs while meeting radiation safety requirements is important for the safety of both the operators and passengers without additional tunnel length or increasing the spacing between parcels. The throughput combined with the low false alarm rates allows for optimum operation performance. The DETECTTM 1000 can be configured in various forms including stand alone for those sites with limited space, integrated with our automated diverter for those sites that need to automate the search station and a complete integration with an automated tray return system for those sites without space limitations.
The DETECTTM 1000 has passed both the TSA cabin baggage certification and ECAC C3 cabin baggage test.
Computed Tomography x-ray technology is also being applied to non-intrusive detection of narcotics in stream of commerce mail. In the US DHS Opioid Detection Challenge, IDSS’s CT team took first place in exceeding requirements for non-intrusive detection and false alarm performance. The DETECTTM 1000 imaging system with Artificial Intelligence driven algorithms provided the best system capability and maturity to apply to the problem of scanning parcels for drugs. IDSS anticipates further developing this capability for use in not only in postal rooms but also in airport and customs environments.
Computed tomography-based x-ray systems provide an excellent platform to address both current and future threats. IDSS currently has the DETECTTM 1000 checkpoint system which is currently being deployed, with additional systems in development for hold baggage and cargo applications. In a post pandemic environment, the use of CT technology at checkpoints minimizes the handling of bags and articles through the ability to conduct virtual screening and searches of bags and article. The implementation of CT technology offers enhanced security for explosives detection and the development of Artificial Intelligence algorithms for the detection of Prohibited Items and Narcotics continue to enhance the capability of the CT systems for years to come in a variety of applications.
