MilliScan is redefining how security inspection is done. MilliScan recently participated in the Frontex Industry Days held on March 29-30. Its innovative body scanner is gaining traction in the security sector for its AI-powered, millimeter-wave imaging technology that can detect concealed metal and non-metal objects without emitting harmful radiation like X-rays. MilliScan presented its people screening system at the Frontex Industry Days event, which drew the attention of more than 50 professionals from different European customs and border control agencies.
The European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) hosted its Industry Days, an online meeting with 16 industry representatives to discuss innovative technologies relevant to border management. With the increasing role of technology in European Integrated Border Management, Frontex provided a platform for dialogue between the European border and coast guard community and industry, inviting representatives to showcase their latest approaches, technologies, and solutions.
Selected providers and research institutes were given a 40-minute timeslot to present their research and products, including Q&A and open discussions. The event also provided an opportunity for technology providers to present their solutions to some of the key challenges faced by border management.
One of the main challenges discussed during the Industry Days was balancing security and privacy. It is important to balance the need for security with the need to protect individual rights, such as the right to privacy.
The implementation of advanced technologies, such as AI, machine learning, and biometric identification systems, requires specialized technical expertise and resources. This includes training and capacity-building for law enforcement and border control personnel as well as ongoing maintenance and updates to the technology. The use of advanced technologies also raises ethical considerations, such as the potential for bias in AI algorithms or the misuse of biometric data. It is important to ensure that the use of these technologies is transparent, accountable, and governed by clear ethical guidelines.
One of MilliScan’s key objectives is to develop its technology in close collaboration with end users. By doing so, we aim to create products and technology that meet the ever-changing needs of security operators. This approach ensures that the MilliScan’s technology is always up-to-date, making the screening process more efficient and effective for security professionals.
To achieve this objective, MilliScan has been working closely with various government agencies, customs, and border control professionals to gain a deep understanding of their operational requirements.
Frontex assists EU Member States in supporting the development of modern technologies for the border and coast guard community. As part of its mandate, Frontex regularly meets with industry, researchers, and experts from the Member States to provide a platform for discussion and help develop new technologies and innovations related to border control. The Industry Days allow for a transparent procedure of consultations with industry representatives, and Frontex regularly informs about such meetings on its website. The agency has also developed a transparency register to ensure that contacts with the industry are as transparent and fair as possible.
The portability, affordability, and simplicity of the MilliScan body scanner makes it an attractive solution for government agency buildings, prisons, customs, and loss prevention customers who require body scanners for their daily operations.
The positive feedback from Frontex Industry Days further validates MilliScan’s mission of reinventing how security inspection is done. With interest from customs and border control professionals, the company is poised to make a significant impact on the industry and enhance security screening for people and mail.
