Vehicle-Based Threat Detection System for Stand-off Protection against WMD’s and Explosives in Air Cargo

Spring 2020, Santa Rosa, CA. — The Cameron Group, Inc., team has addressed current risks during loading of aircraft cargo such as uncontrolled personnel, open-air screening, screening via paperwork alone, and bypassed screening. The resulting program is bringing Cameron’s patented Vehicle Based Threat Detection System (VBTDS) to fruition with the US Government for the safety of all our people.

The VBTDS can detect the presence of Weapons of Mass Destruction — nuclear weapons or radiological materials, chemicals, biologicals, or explosives — in contraband aircraft cargo, long before the cargo endangers US airspace, achieving true Threat Standoff.

The VBTDS consists of an automated, secure, Vehicle-Based system of sensors and countermeasures that achieves low false detection rates and that easily deploys to the fleet of cargo and passenger aircraft that visit U.S. airspace. This dramatically increases screening comprehensiveness and allows aircrew and authorities to take action early in threat scenarios.

We advocate taking action to reinforce the Global Nuclear Detection Architecture through strengthening the Air Cargo Advance Screening system (ACAS) run by DHS and TSA. See here
