Holographic Scanner for Safe Real-Time High Throughput Screening of People and Their Bags

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - HOLOSCAN (Holographic Scanner for Safe Real-Time High Throughput Screening of People and Their Bags)

Reporting period: 2014-12-01 to 2015-05-31

SME Instrument Phase 1
FINAL REPORT
Part 1a. Publishable Summary


HOLOSCAN proposal won a contract under the H2020 Call DRS-17-2014/2015: Critical infrastructure protection topic 7: SME Instrument topic “Protection of urban soft targets and urban critical infrastructures”. Project aim was is to define a system that will utilize a number of mm-wave transmitters and holographic receivers to cover an area where people are moving or approaching portals. The equipment will be positioned in a specific way to allow capturing images from different angles. The acquired images are processed either in the capturing device or in a central location to identify possible objects of threat and this response is planned to be automated.

Conclusions of the Phase 1 Project are:

• Four possible commercial scenarios and therefore potential HOLOSCAN systems have been identified;
• Large-scale scenario for mm-wave antenna array panels was show to be feasible in a theoretical study;
• An experimental holographic scan using IDEAS patented set-up could identify “knife-like” or “gun-like” objects when they are wrapped in cloth (“concealed”);
• Freedom to Operate in HOLOSCAN Phase 2 was confirmed, NO-GO Areas were identified;
• Market and Industry analysis was performed, three market areas was identified and strategy to enter all three has been developed;
• Compliance with regulatory issues has been confirmed;
• Strategies for operation and financial management have been identified;
• Initial dissemination efforts have been carried out.
