ENTRANCE will develop a comprehensive user-based toolbox for risk-based non-intrusive inspection of cross-border freight movements, with particular focus on the EU Customs Union border. Its aim is to enhance border security practitioners’ capabilities to detect a wide range of dangerous and illicit materials with minimum disruption of cross-border flow of goods.
The toolbox will automate risk-assessment and threat detection processes. It will provide a single integrated platform for all risk and threat related data and processes. In order to ensure its feasibility it will be validated at the EU Customs Union border by a series of field trials.
Foreseeable Outcomes:ENTRANCE Toolbox consisting of:
- Automated Risk Assessment, Threat Recognition and Information Sharing Platform (ENARTIS)
- non-intrusive inspection technologies for detecting contraband hidden in high-density cargo
- enhanced relocatable unit for non-intrusive detection of multiple threats
- trans-European network of Radiation Portal Monitors (RPM) with novel high-speed detection technology
