Evolv Edge is a walk-through security screening solution that allows individuals to be checked for weapons and other dangerous items without stopping, emptying their pockets or being visually searched by guards. The Evolv Edge can automatically scan up to up to 950 people per hour. To do this, the technology employs a multi-sensor approach to screening a person, including active millimeter wave, passive magnetic sensors and optical sensor technologies. Millimeter waves transmitted out toward a person, penetrate clothing, bounce off the person’s skin and are sensed by receivers in the Evolv Edge. If there is an explosive device, or a sufficient amount of any dielectric material on the person, the millimeter waves are transformed by that material, producing detectable signatures on the data. Evolv Edge can map these signature disruptions to locations on the person and generate localized suspicious areas when an anomaly is present. Evolv Edge completes its scan in seconds, detecting a variety of concealed metallic and non-metallic mass casualty threats, including person-borne improvised explosive devices (PBIEDs), suicide vests and belts, as well as firearms and other weapons. The potential threat is highlighted on an image of the person being scanned so that guards make fewer mistakes and can process people more efficiently and less intrusively. This approach optimizes throughput and labor while improving the overall security posture. Evolv Edge is self-contained and relocatable, and is suited for use at non-traditional checkpoints in high-traffic areas.
