Cargo Security<div class="body"> <p> <span style="COLOR&#58;rgb(255,0,0);"> <strong>LoJack Supply Chain Integrity</strong> </span> of Forney, Texas, has launched its next-generation cargo protection system. The LoJack SCI InTransit solution provides around-the-clock visibility for shipments as they move through the international supply chain, regardless of transportation mode. It uses a combination of GPS, cellular GPS, DGPS, and radio frequency to ensure continuous tracking. Customers have the option to integrate satellite communications technology while at sea or on railways for coverage in remote locations. Users can set parameters and receive alerts in the event that challenging conditions (such as humidity, tampering, or intrusion) oc­cur. The solution enhances a company’s participation in the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-T­PAT). Customers configure the solution by selecting the transportation modes and sensor applications that meet their needs. Purchase and lease options are available. </p> </div>
Liquid Identification<div class="body"> <div class="thumbnail"> <img title="" alt="" src="http&#58;//" width="144" height="202" /> </div> <p> <span style="COLOR&#58;rgb(255,0,0);"> <strong>Link Microtek Ltd.</strong> </span> of Basingstoke, United Kingdom, has introduced a new liquid-identification system. The EMILI 1+ uses microwave sensing to instantly identify whether the contents of a bottle are inflammable, corrosive, explosive, or harmless. Originally developed by Germany-based <span style="COLOR&#58;rgb(255,0,0);"><strong>Emisens</strong></span>, it is a multimode sensor that emits an evanescent micro­wave field that penetrates a bottle and enables the dielectric permittivity and ionic conductivity of the liquid to be measured and the type of liquid to be identified. The process takes less than one second. It works with plastic, glass, and ceramic bottles, and can be used as a standalone system or in conjunction with existing x-ray scanners. The system could be used to identify liquids at airports or to check for alcohol at security checkpoints at public events. </p> </div>
Secure Data Storage<div class="body"> <div class="thumbnail"> <img title="" alt="" src="http&#58;//" width="144" height="100" /> </div> <p>Amsterdam-based <span style="COLOR&#58;rgb(128,0,0);"><strong><span style="COLOR&#58;rgb(255,0,0);">Gemalto</span></strong></span>has earned FIPS 140-2 level 3 certification for its Smart Guardian FIPS encrypted USB drive with personal identity verification (PIV) integrated authentication ability. The secure storage device is a smart card-protected flash drive that meets the U.S. military 810-F environmental standard and is now available to secure the mobile data of U.S. government employees. The device provides data-at-rest protection for all information on the device without impacting user productivity, and the PIV integration offers the convenience of having to remember only one PIN. Agencies can strongly bind the SG FIPS to their employees’ government-issued PIV credential so only the authorized user can access the data. Tampering attempts will result in destruction of the smart card crypto module rendering it useless to intruders. Manufactured in the United States, the rugged, waterproof unit operates on multiple operating systems including Windows and Mac OS. </p> </div>
