Customs authorities today are moving to systems that are more automated and integrated into the logistic flow where novel risk-assessment, Automated Threat Recognition (ATR) and Non-intrusive inspection (NII) techniques play an increasingly important role. ENTRANCE will represent an important and innovative step forward by taking a comprehensive approach where technologies are developed beyond the state of the art and combined to leverage their complementary strengths.
ENTRANCE will implement self-contained technology components that can operate as system nodes that are compatible with a complete range of applications. These will include the control of maritime containers at ports, vehicles of all types at land borders and freight train controls on the railways.
Examples of such system combination include:
ENTRANCE will develop a beyond the state-of-the-art integrated Toolbox for risk-based NII of cross-border cargo, which will enable more efficient detection of a larger number of threats and illegal goods, with higher levels of automation and minimal disturbance of flow.
