CERPAC®
   SUPERVISA®


This product provides new and highly secure documents and cards for the identification and tracking of foreign residents. In addition a central database is deployed to maintain a record of all foreign national movements, whether within, into, or out of the country. This also enables the instant flagging up of all undesirable foreign nationals. CERPAC® combines a tightly linked set of secure, tamper proof documents, backed up by advanced hardware, and reinforced with comprehensive documentation and training.

With CERPAC® , as with our other applications, the emphasis is on modularity and clients-specific requirements. By combining these two approaches, a variety of bespoke solutions can be produced. For example, upon arrival at an airport, a secure strip called Watermark® (on the reverse of the Residence Permit) is swiped through a reader. The card holder’s record then appears on the immigration officer’s computer screen. Each card has a unique number, which is recorded at the issuing station. This number cannot be copied,altered or erased. The examples illustrated are taken from a current live deployment of this product in monitoring all entries into and exits from Nigeria.

 SUPERGATE

The Personnel Monitoring and Control System (PMCS) is an advanced time and attendance system designed to strengthen security within an organisation’s premises in relation to access control.
Benefits include improving productivity, reducing, streamlining procedures, and reducing maintenance costs. This can all be achieved through the countering of payroll fraud, and instances involving so-called “ghost workers” and “buddy clocking”.
 C-VISION®

C-Vision® consists of a set of modules which can be selected according to an individual customer’s needs. The options depend on a unique combination of ultra-sophisticated software and a new generation of
cameras to provide:
Closed Circuit Surveillance (CCS)
This product enables real-time and time-lapse surveillance to be implemented both indoors and outdoors, regardless of weather or light conditions.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)
This technique captures the registration plates from moving vehicles, and decodes them into a manageable format for processing. This technology also works in darkness as well as bad weather, and can cope with speeds of up to 150 kilometres per hour.
Automatic Face Recognition (AFR)
These modules are designed to photograph and digitise human faces in such a way that they can be compared against a set of library images of, for example, known criminals.

Combining all of the C-Vision® modules results in the creation of a exceptionally powerful and secure environment for both people and places.



 CAR TRACKING

One extension of the basic C-BART ® technology is available for interfacing with high or ultra-high frequency chips embedded in vehicles, which can be monitored from either the side of the road or from overhead gantries. When used in conjunction with ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) techniques, this creates a powerful recognition/verification package for stationary, and more importantly, moving vehicles. This can be applied to cars, lorries, buses, railway wagons,
in fact any type of vehicle.

ANPR cameras can tell police officers within seconds whether a vehicle has been stolen, is known to be involved in crime, or is untaxed.

Digital cameras scan and record the vehicle registration marks of every passing car

The numbers are then cross-checked against the central database, to identify vehicles of interest to police officers

If a registration plate is flagged up on the database, the system alerts the operator with both a visual and audible signal. Almost immediately, the operator can then call for police officers to intercept the vehicle and question the driver packages.

Automatic Vehicle Sensing technology is linked to the ANPR system, and uses an electronic black box fitted to all vehicles and then either monitored by satellite or by roadside scanners.

Automatic Face Recognition technology can help to combat fraud and multiple license applications. When applying for the license, face recognition software can be used to compare a digitised photo against images already stored on the central database.

 


SuperVisa® is a new, powerful, and secure type of electronic visa with its own built-in intelligence, and is not dissimilar in appearance to either the US and Schengen visas (the latter used in Europe).

The functionality of SuperVisa ® is significantly enhanced by the fact that the actual visa carries a smart chip and aerial embedded in it. All data relating to a visa holder is stored away electronically in the chip. When stuck into a passport, the electronic part of the SuperVisa ® can easily be read by a so-called “smart” reader. This makes SuperVisa ® very difficult to compromise as the data is also encrypted.
The SuperVisa® platform is entirely modular in design, and can be configured to any specifications; both in terms of the card itself and the electronic components.
This is crucial, as research shows that all future developments in the United States and Europe will have to offer digitised information with biometrics. With visual security components also included during the visa’s manufacture, it means that each SuperVisa ® is essentially a self-contained and completely tamper-proof individual database.

 PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT & CONTROL SYSTEMS

PMCS is an advanced identification system combining smart or contacless cards and biometric technologies for the correct verification of individuals. A “live” biometric image such as a fingerprint scan is captured at the point of interaction. This is compared to a similar image already stored on a database when the individual was initially enrolled onto the ID system. Access is subsequently granted or denied.

Because the system accurately and instantly identifies each employee, no unauthorised person can enter the facility, and all staff movement is fully recorded. This automatically eradicates time disputes, or “buddy clocking”
by other staff members. These records can then be saved, printed, and analysed at any time. The resulting information can also be integrated with most payroll packages, thereby allowing accurate employee payroll data to be worked out.

 ACCESS CONTROL SYSTEMS

Access Control Systems offer secure, convenient and versatile options for managing the movement of people, vehicles and assets into, out of, and around a building or site. They allow access only on the basis of prior authority. Access Control is a thriving sector with plenty of new and exciting technologies. Here is a summary of the main access control devices:

Digital Keypad Systems
These comprise a user terminal with a series of push buttons linked to the lock mechanism via a control unit. The unit is pre-set with a personal identification number (PIN), which unlocks the entrance when the same number is keyed into the terminal.

Token-based Systems
These are designed to allow entry when a pre-programmed card is swiped through a slot in the terminal, or when a pre-programmed token is placed in close proximity to the terminal.

Audio and Video Entry
These systems allow an individual to exercise personal control over access from a secure location. Selected entrances are linked to a central control point by a two-way intercom. A video element can be used to combine verbal interrogation with visual recognition. Access is granted by operating a lock release located at the control point.

Biometric Readers - These deliver very high security standards by recognising the unique characteristics of authorised users. Options include retina, hand, fingerprint patterns as well as voice recognition technology.


 DaVID ®

DaVID ® is the Driving and Vehicle Identification system, with a new, powerful, and secure type of electronic driving licence with its own built-in intelligence. It is based on the evolutionary C-BaRT ® technology platform, already used with the SuperVisa and Green Card/Alien Registration applications. The project involves establishing local enrolment centres as well as regional licence production centres. Driving licences will hold two types of biometric data as well as an individual’s particulars. The licence contains a contactless chip which holds all driving-related data - the information can be updated using a special GPS handheld device. Visual security aspects on the card itself add to the completeness of the application.
