Detection Physics

Optosecurity detection algorithms leverage to the utmost the RAW data generated by the X-ray machine to obtain highly accurate results and resolve potential ambiguities.

Liquid Detection

Optosecurity uses proprietary analysis of physical properties as well as 3D reconstruction and X-ray simulation to resolve ambiguities between materials that are very similar, often within ranges that challenge the resolution of the X-ray machine.

Firearm Detection

Automating firearm detection represents a significant innovation and improvement to existing methods used at security checkpoints today.

Material analysis is used to select regions of interest within an image based on specific material classifications. Additionally, analysis of the physical composition identifies and strips out the benign objects while enhancing the image of any potentially dangerous items. Image features are then compared to known features of the reference threat database developed by Optosecurity

Optosecurity proprietary threat database houses geometrically corrected images, representing up to 46,000 distinct views of a single threat object along numerous planes. This threat library, which was generated using proprietary image capture methodology and selected firearms from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) national gun collection, is believed to be the largest set of X-ray images of handguns in the world. Custom search filter methods make it possible to detect practically any type of firearm within five seconds.
