Security & Policing has established itself as a platform to launch new products. This year’s new product launches will include:
AMPHENOL – MICRO-SD CARD READER
Amphenol’s rugged Terrapin series is now available with a Micro-SD card reader that combines proven IP68 sealing and ruggedized connector protection for off the shelf Micro-SD cards.
Simply insert the card into the panel mounted reader, fit the cap and lock in place. The card is sealed and protected until removal.
The Terrapin series offer well proven performance in harsh environments and is used extensively for handheld equipment, C4iSR communication, video and data collection devices.
APSTEC SYSTEMS – HSR FOR CUSTOMS
Human Security Radar® HSR™ for Customs is a high throughput people screening system that detect narcotics and currency being carried by couriers through national borders, whether land, sea or air. Fully automatic, real time and without the requirement for additional staff to respond to alerts or manage the system in anyway, HSR offers a great opportunity to significantly improve the effectiveness of Customs operations.
Placed in a customs channel, HSR provides an additional layer of screening that can detect narcotics and
currency being carried on passengers entering or, in the case of currency, leaving the country. It does not require any additional staff and simply slots straight in to any border operation. In terms of behavioural detection, it provides another trigger in an already hostile environment for the
smuggler. It complements but improves operational efficiency.
HSR offers a real time opportunity to identify smugglers who may currently be subjected to an ad hoc approach to screening and a relatively unhindered entry into the country. It ensures that one hundred percent of passengers get screened, allowing intelligence led operations to focus on the highest priority risks. Without requiring additional Customs staff and with a simple response to any alerts, HSR provides a genuine and significant enhancement to border operations. When considering the likelihood of finding narcotics or currency on passengers entering or leaving the country, consider how HSR could fundamentally change border with immediate effect.
ARGON ELECTRONICS UK – RAD EYE RADIATION TRAINING SIMULATOR
Argon’s RadEye™ series radiation training simulators enable high and potentially lethal reading dose and dose rate exercises to take place in complete safety without using harmful ionizing radiation sources. RadEye-SIM responds to safe, environmentally friendly simulation radiation sources that enable you to implement suspect container, vehicle checkpoint, search and survey exercises with ease.

CUNNING RUNNING SOFTWARE – COUNTER DRONE VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENTS (CDVA)
Cunning Running Software Ltd (Stand C90) have launched a Counter Drone Vulnerability assessment service. This assists Police or other security personnel to understand the most likely areas where illegal drone flights might occur so that they can be mitigated by patrols, observation, denial or siting counter-drone equipment. Building up to this launch we have assisted Police at sporting venues, a major defence installation, a commercial harbour and major public events. The service enables forces who are not equipped with our CTS-PRAS software, or do not have the resources to dedicate to counter-drone analysis, to call off our expertise to fill the gap quickly and cost-effectively. All our staff that carry out CDVA are cleared to at least SC, and are from military or police backgrounds. As the threat from drones increases, so will the requirement to plan against and mitigate that threat.
DYNAMIC CROWD MEASUREMENT
Dynamic crowd measurement (DCM) is software to measure 3 important metrics for crowd management and behavior monitoring. DCM measures Crowd density, Crowd flow ( velocity) and Crowd mood as a privacy protected sentiment analysis. (DCM complies with GDRP in the UK) The software can visualize the complex interrelationship between these factors for better resourcing of security and policing services. User cases in Sydney Australia at NYE have shown this software can also provide quantitative evidence why police may need to take actions or why no action was required. This can be installed in existing control rooms and digital cameras above 1080., A dashboard is provided and the raw data converted to various forms of heat mapping to simplify on ground communication.

ISTORAGE – CLOUDASHUR – HARDWARE ENCRYPTION MODULE
Over the years, cloud has become of great value to an organisation’s IT infrastructure. So, how can an organisation shield their invaluable data from hackers gaining access, by taking advantage of security vulnerabilities to infiltrate the cloud? In response to this conundrum, iStorage has arduously worked to provide a solution.
In June 2019, iStorage launched cloudAshur – an ultra-secure PIN authenticated, hardware encrypted, cloud data encryption module. Using a hardware-based AES-XTS 256-bit encryption key that is securely stored on the cloudAshur device, it encrypts all data in transit and at rest. The device uniquely offers 5 factor authentication and grants the user full and secure control of the encrypted encryption key, hence protecting the data even if the cloud account is hacked.
cloudAshur allows users to:
• ENCRYPT data to ensure the ultimate lockdown of data stored both in the cloud and on-premise.
• SHARE encrypted data with authorised users in the cloud as well as via email and file transfer services in real-time (iStorage patented KeyWriter Software)
• MANAGE and monitor cloudAshur devices centrally (cloudAshur Remote Management Console).
Compatible with both PCs and MACs, cloudAshur works with numerous cloud providers including Amazon Drive, Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, iCloud and many more.
Visit Stand B96 to see learn how cloudAshur could work within your organisation and to learn how to secure your data in the cloud.
KINESENSE – KINESENSE DEM
Kinesense’s Digital Evidence Management (DEM) solution for police is designed to make assets and evidence management even easier. What makes the Kinesense DEM unique is that in addition to storing and securing all digital files including documents, audio, images, etc, it is designed to efficiently support ALL video, from CCTV, mobile phones, covert or body worn cameras. Securely store, quickly retrieve and share important assets to eliminate investigation delays and costs typically associated with the physical transfer of data between colleagues and the prosecution service.
Eliminate the costly physical transfer of video assets & evidence
With the Kinesense DEM solution, users can import video and all media files, add metadata and a reference to a case and share with colleagues and prosecutors alike. Users can log on to the system to search for videos using key metadata tags.
Users can review assets uploaded and bookmark key sections of videos and assign tasks or request feedback from colleagues. DEM logs all user access, enables assets to be shared on a restricted or open basis (subject to permissions) whilst the Dashboard gives Management full visibility.
Securely archive digital data
We have built the solution so that it can be hosted on the cloud (or on-premise) and being delivered as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution means that the cost of entry is not prohibitive and expansion is more cost-effective and flexible. Most importantly, all assets including video are tracked and any actions take by personnel are logged ensuring a complete evidential trail.
THE LAVA GROUP – SMART HATCH
An on demand smart glass solution for observation, specially developed to enhance the safety and privacy of those living and working in a custodial environment, Smart Hatch is the first and only auditable obscured controlled panel that can be retrofitted to prison observation hatches or installed as part of a new build.
Prison Services have a responsibility to provide a positive duty of care to protect prisoners from personal injury and harm, including abuse and neglect. The current standard of care is to risk assess prisoners, observe and manually document that they are safe, and at regular intervals.
Despite the best efforts these established observation protocols are open to abuse, affecting sleep patterns and interfering with prisoner privacy; negatively impacting on the relationship between staff and prisoner.
Given the rise in prisoner litigation, the need for accurate and reliable records of cell observations and engagement by prison staff has never been greater.
Switching electronically between obscure and clear when activated prevents unauthorised viewing and reduces incidents of:
- Sleep disturbances caused by hatch noise
- Abuse and accusations of the frequency of observations
- Observation hatches left open or un-monitored
Ultimately this leads to fewer complaints as the systems audit trail provides transparency of prison observation procedure for both staff and prisoners. The system is currently supporting cell observations and is installed in several Secure Training Centres (STCs).

PANOPTECH – MIX
As mobile application usage becomes even more prolific within organisations, individuals are increasingly using personal messaging applications, including WhatsApp and Signal, to communicate in a business context. These 3rd party applications offer the ability for individuals and groups to quickly share information and enhance business performance. This in turn increases the vulnerability of an organisation to the risk of data loss. The organisation is no longer in control of the security of its data and has lost its ability to audit content being shared both internally and externally.
In deploying a self-hosted and managed messaging application, the organisation lowers the risk of any data breach and increases accountability and audit capability of the content being delivered across the application. Panoptech’s mix product offers an organisation the ability to take control of content as well as enclosing and securing the network on which the application is deployed. mix can sit on a corporate network, allowing desktop and mobile users to interact, sending messages with managed content, including documents and images, securely and with a full audit trail.
PELA SYSTEMS – PELAMESH
PELAmesh is a portable sensor integration platform allowing users to view live data from multiple remotely deployed sensors, securely and wirelessly transmitted to a command unit in-field.
What is PELAmesh?
PELAmesh is the integration of two critical aspects of information management – processing and communication. Using our patented technology, data is instantly processed and transmitted using our unique combination of hardware, encryption and software, to deliver live data to the operator via a visual display.
Current methods require specialist operators to carry handheld sensors into highly contaminated environments to accurately detect, identify and monitor, via the small read-out on each handheld sensor. PELAmesh connects to each of the sensors, instantly sending this data to the command point, often within a safe cordon, allowing the operator to work in a safer environment.
Deploying PELAmesh is quick, simple and easy, as it is made up of two key elements – CAN and Commander. PELAmesh CAN connects locally to the sensor, instantly transmitting data. PELAmesh Commander is fully operational in seconds thanks to solid state, fully integrated hardware and software. Using the built-in or remote display option, the operator can see PELAmesh CAN and Commander locations at a glance, selecting each PELAmesh CAN to view more detailed data, or use the overview function to see the entire scene.
PELAmesh products are COTS, with variations available depending on application. PELAmesh CAN is available in standard duration – 12-14 hrs on single charge, or extended duration – 24+ hours, including connectivity to external, sustainable power sources (solar, wind & generator).
