San Diego, CA, USA – 10/13/20 – Tek84 is pleased to announce that it has received the 200th order of its revolutionary whole-body scanner, the Intercept. The recent order from the Suffolk County Jail, New York, marks a milestone in Tek84’s prolific growth since entering the correctional market in 2019.
Dr. Steven W. Smith, the CEO and CTO of Tek84, remarked: “We have been at the forefront of body scanner innovation for three decades. We designed the Intercept scanner to be an ideal fit for the threat-detection needs of jails, correctional facilities, and critical government infrastructures such as border crossings and military security operations.
Made in the USA, the patented Intercept is a breakthrough in body scanner technology. Unlike airport body scanners that only look under the clothing, Intercept also detects threats concealed within the body, solving critical problems for high-security facilities. A quick 4-second scan provides safe and high-resolution screening of the whole body, both inside and out. Intercept uses a unique proprietary vertical scanning technology that allows persons to remain stationary while being screened, unlike previous generation body scanners that move the subject on a conveyer belt or platform.
Featuring a compact 34″ x 72″ footprint, Intercept ships fully assembled and rolls to the final site through standard doorways, perfect for challenging locations with small rooms, low ceiling heights, and restrictive access. The mobility and size of the Intercept offers flexibility and quick two-hour installation.
Multiple Intercepts can be networked both locally and remotely to provide a turnkey solution for the most challenging security environments. Standard features include an integrated camera for positive I.D., advanced software tools for displaying images and managing records of scanned persons, and exceptional operator training from Tek84’s senior instructors. Optional features include barcode and biometric identification, customization for local requirements, and non-contact thermal scanning to detect fevers, helping to avoid the spread of viral and biological pathogens.
