Smiths’ iCMORE Weapon Detection Capability

Smiths Detection has added weapon detection to the iCMORE family of object recognition algorithms. iCMORE offers automatic detection of a list of dangerous, prohibited and contraband goods and now offers automatic detection of handguns (pistols, revolvers), gun parts, flick and fixed-blade knives (min. length ~6cm). It is available for the HI-SCAN 6040aTiX and HI-SCAN 6040-2is scanners. A weapons algorithm for the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX has also been developed and is now ready for trial. The weapons kit is offered as an option on new systems or as an upgrade. Potential threats are framed and shown on the main system screen in tandem with the images from the explosives detection scan. The supplementary function does not affect any regulatory certifications or approvals. iCMORE’s deep learning algorithm used a library of images from customers to develop its weapons detection abilities.
