Institute for the Protection and the Security of the Citizen
Acronym: CI - Supply Chain (ITesT)
TraceTec develops and evaluates new techniques, verifies and tests technological solutions to improve tracing of the Supply Chain of commercial goods, transport and storage of hazardous materials, to reduce risks and increase the security of the citizens.
The main focus of TraceTec is to validate tracing approaches for integrating security in Supply Chains and to test technological solutions with respect to interoperability.
TraceTec develops and tests RFID active and passive smart seals, remote monitoring systems, controlled and secure systems for loading of goods that are crucial equipment used to reduce and prevent diversion.
TraceTec carries out certified tests and vulnerability analysis, essential to qualify the systems developed in house or available on the market, to a common European standard to enable effective tracing throughout Europe and worldwide.
TraceTec gives training to the Custom operators on security equipment to assure continuity of knowledge to the final users.
The same technologies have also been developed to further increase the security and quality of life of the citizen. These projects have reached a state of maturation now allowing technology transfer.
