Silicon Valley-based Qylur Security Systems announced Tuesday the commercial availability of the Qylatron Entry Experience Solution — an automated, self-service, security-screening kiosk for sports and entertainment venues, monuments and transportation hubs.
Already successfully demonstrated at Liberty State Park (at the ferry terminal to the Statue of Liberty), a Rio de Janeiro airport and a US stadium, the Qylatron is designed to scan guest IDs and screens bags at high speed, detect multiple security threats, reduce security costs with up to 50 percent less staffing and improve the guest experience.
The Department of Homeland Security recently granted Qylur its Support Anti-Terrorist by Fostering Technologies (SAFETY) Act designation, paving the way for commercial deployments of the Qylatron, the first of which is expected in early 2014.
The Qylatron premiered at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City, where guests were invited to experience the entry solution first hand.
The Qylatron offers comprehensive large-venue security screening, replacing manual-driven alternatives. The Qylatron performs five concurrent bag scans with patented, multi-threat detection that employs the fusion of multiple sensors. Equipped with an intelligent, threat-learning engine and ongoing updates, the Qylatron is able to respond to ever-evolving threats, both locally and globally. In addition, while a typical five-lane, x-ray security checkpoint setup occupies more than 2,500 square feet, a Qylatron checkpoint requires only 450 square feet.
The Qylatron Entry Experience Solution is being released for general availability for commercial deployments beginning in the first quarter of 2014. It is offered under a security-as-a-service subscription model whereby Qylur provides the complete system and a full suite of services, including maintenance, field service and a service for ongoing fine tuning of detection and flow performance.
