What is ARGON ?

ARGON is a passive terahertz camera solution for people screening. It detects contraband on moving subjects with real-time video feed, large field of view and advanced Artificial Intelligence. The solution is ideal to be utilized in urban crowded places for people protection, as well as for retail loss prevention.

ARGON’s super sensitive sensors create an image of the persons walking by with hidden items they are carrying under their clothing. The system’s visual camera helps identifying each person.

Digitalizing security with ARGON provides significant cost savings. It screens up to 1800 people per hour, with reduced need of security personnel. ARGON solves the problem of conventional physical security.

How does it work?

People walking by ARGON are screened in real time. No need to stop. Allowing people to walk by at a normal pace means remarkable efficiency rise at checkpoints. This helps avoiding queues – which are of concern at the time of pandemic. It’s fast throughput helps to avoid contagion at checkpoints by minimizing contacts. ARGON is Post-COVID secure creating socially distanced security. Look at the new capacity in fever detection too.

The device screens for metals, plastics, liquids, drugs and currency. ARGON is intended to detect large items, such as guns or bottles. It can be optimized to detect objects as small as 2.5 x 2.5 cm.

It can be fitted into the interior unnoticeably, even be hidden from sight as a completely covert operation. Thus, it doesn’t draw unnecessary attention or clash with the interior design.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Automated Anomaly Detection

ARGON supports ubiquitous security. Make it part of building automation with Artificial intelligence – profit the efficiency of digitalization.

Well trained Artificial Intelligence can outperform any human operator saving a lot of manpower and reducing costs.

ARGON has automated anomaly detection. This well trained Artificial Intelligence can outperform any human operator saving a lot of manpower and reducing costs.

It is safe for using throughout the day. The technology is completely safe for people, it does not emit anything. ARGON’s technology is 100% radiation free. Privacy is guaranteed. The thermal screening is discreet, it reveals no anatomical details. Also, ARGON enables socially distanced security. Read more about technology!

ARGON in a nutshell

  • ARGON is the world’s leading dynamic security screening solution.
  • Superior in passive submillimeter-wave camera technology
  • High throughput walk-by screening capability
  • Multiple people screened simultaneously
  • Concealed contraband exposed accurately
  • Real-time video imaging
  • No sensitive and anatomical details revealed
  • Easy-to-use graphical user interface
  • Safe for all day use. The technology emits no photons and thus is completely without health or privacy issues
  • Non-intrusive. The solution is inherently discreet.
  • The solution can provide ubiquitous security screening. The device can be shield and hidden in architecture if desirable.
  • On-board AI (artificial intelligence) with documented hardware&software interfaces, the ARGON solution can be made part of smart building automation systems.
  • Ideal for all urban crowded places, solving the problem of conventional security check-points getting congested e.g. at mass transit stations, or any building interiors, entrances and exits.
