JRC’s 3D technologies applied at an Integrated Mobile Security Kit
The JRC as technology provider contributes to the Integrated Mobile Security Kit (IMSK) project with the 3D technologies for change detection and situational awareness. These systems are based on the technologies that JRC has developed for nuclear safeguards applications and were further adapted to the specific requirements of the IMSK project.
The IMSK project is a major research and development project within EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). It aims at developing a security solution for large events requiring temporary increased security, such as Olympic Games or political summits.
IMSK has reached today 19 September an important milestone, as a demonstration exercise simulating an EU Summit takes place in the UK.
In this demonstration, attendees have been able to check the main features of the product: a security system that is mobile and scalable in response to changing threats, it can be easily updated with new and emerging sensors and technology, it is rapidly deployable and detects substances in real time.
IMSK is executed by a consortium consisting of 26 parties spread all over Europe ranging from large, internationally recognised defence companies to small-medium enterprises, universities and operational counter-terror professionals.
