Tallinn and Bangkok, June 29, 2017 – today Apstec Systems™ (Apstec™) and Teletrol-One (TL1) announce that TL1 has become an official channel partner for Apstec. The partnership enables the companies to deliver Apstec’s game changing scanning and detection solution Human Security Radar® (HSR®) to customers in the Thai market. This will dramatically improve security in crowded places, contribute to the fight against terrorism and help make the world a safer place by protecting vulnerable crowded places from today’s threats.
The security of crowded places is fast becoming an issue of great concern throughout the world with the regularity and proximity of terrorist incidents a constant reminder of the threat posed by extremism. For over a decade parts of Thailand have been regularly subjected to indiscriminate terrorist attack, including bombings and shootings, resulting in over 6,000 deaths since 2004. The Global Terrorism Index 2016, which measures the impact of terrorism, ranked Thailand as the 15th most affected by terrorism. The need to employ a concrete solution to secure public places is clearly evident and highlights the ongoing and significant challenge faced by Thai authorities.
“For a long time we have been looking for a safe security scanner that combines the best of existing millimeter based scanners and x-rays”, said Chanyust Jantunyarux, CEO of TL1. “We were very pleased to learn about the Human Security Radar and Apstec’s technology when visiting their laboratory. As a result, we immediately started exploring cooperation with Apstec for the Thai market. Regrettably, Thailand requires the Human Security Radar in many public places and we are very pleased that we have found an answer to Thailand’s security woes”.
Apstec is a leading innovator specializing in the development of technology for the detection of weapons and person-borne improvised explosive devices (PBIEDs). Apstec’s HSR delivers cutting-edge technology with the capability to dramatically improve the security of vulnerable crowded places. The fully automatic walkthrough system is the groundbreaking innovation that extends secure perimeters without causing delay to intensive people flow. The maturity of the technology – in development since 2005 – and the completion of numerous successful trials that have demonstrated an exceptionally high accuracy rate and unparalleled throughput with the capacity to screen up to 10,000 people per hour make HSR a unique and compelling solution to one of the most significant security challenges of the modern era – improving security of vulnerable crowded places for terrorist attacks.
“We are extremely pleased to announce our partnership with Teletrol-One and to introduce Apstec’s Human Security Radar to the Thai market”, says David Kellermann, Chairman of Apstec's Board. TL1’s long history of delivering robust solutions to customers in the Thai market combined with their excellent local sales, delivery and service capabilities were the reasons we were so keen to work with them and make a contribution that would enable organizations and authorities in Thailand to address security issues in crowded spaces”
