Cellular Cargo Bomb Scanner from HSS
Cellular Cargo Bomb Scanner
The Cellular Cargo Bomb Scanner CBS 7.72 Series from Homeland Security Strategies (HSS) scans cargo at airports, marine yards and trucking facilities in an effort to detect bombs, such as those placed on a flight to Chicago by Yemeni terrorists.
The scanner can detect cellular and other signals, including RF frequencies as low as 10 mhz, and up to 8 ghz, says a press release issued by HSS on Jan. 20. It can also scan boats, trucks, warehouses and stationary facilities. When used with an optional reactor jammer, it can defeat a remote trigger before the activation signal is even received, the release continues.
“Inspection of luggage and cargo takes time. X-ray machines take trained people who stay awake,” says the press release. “The Cargo Bomb Scanner is not limited to human error, explosive trace vapors, or images of the package contents. With its optional jammer, it can function instantaneously to block detonation signals directed towards cellular controlled bombs hidden in luggage and packages stored as cargo.
When in scan mode, the intelligent CBS 7.72 will give you the cellular handset number, the telephone numbers which it has called, and the cell or land line numbers which have called this particular handset. It can store up to three million phone numbers. It can be programmed to prevent unauthorized numbers from making or receiving calls, while permitting calls to and from pre-authorized supervisory personnel and ground crews.
HSS engineers have analyzed the photo of the Yemen printer, as it was shown in newspapers and on television. From examining the circuit board, the engineers are virtually certain the attached cell phone was a quad band commercial cell phone, one which works in both Europe and in the United States. They believe the maker of the improvised explosive device (IED) removed most of the phone peripherals, with the exception of the gsm module, in an attempt to elude X-ray or physical analysis of its parts. “This suggests a high degree of sophistication,” observes the HSS press statement.
“The HSS Cellular Cargo Bomb Scanner CBS 7.72 series is a viable answer not only to the threat of cargo bombs, but a whole new dimension of potential threats that can lead to skyjacking or hijacking, even without the presence of a terrorist on board,” the company warned.
