Passive Scanning Technology™

Defense Technologies International Corp.'s subsidiary - Passive Security Scan Inc. - has the exclusive world-wide license to the Passive Scanning Technology™. Passive Security Scan Inc.’s technological breakthrough in walk-through security scanning, will transform security protocols for educational, institutional, public, and government facilities in the USA, and the world. Passive Security Scan's Passive Portal™ is proudly manufactured here in the USA.


What is Passive Scanning Technology™?

Our patented Passive Scanning Technology™, (US Patent 7408461), non-invasively detects weapons and contraband by reading subtle changes in the Earth’s magnetic field.

Traditional metal detectors are "active-sensing". Meaning, they emit potentially harmful radiation that may cause damage to our bodies with prolonged or frequent exposure. Instead of using x-rays or other forms of emissions, the sensors inside in the Passive Portal™ read variations in the Earth’s magnetic field and alert users when firearms, knives, and other weapons are present during screening.

The Passive Portal™ represents a major breakthrough in weapons detection technology. This superior system provides many advantages over standard metal detectors:

Passive Scanning Technology™ is a zero-emission technology. Simply put, this means there is no potential for cancer and other inherent health risks associated with ionizing radiation.

At only 28 lbs, the Passive Portal™ is so light that it can easily be moved by a single operator; a design that makes it easy to transport, store or install outside at a football game or other events.

Our extensive, in-house testing shows a near 99% threat detection accuracy.

Colored LEDs and an audible alarm clearly alert security and staff members. The Passive Portal™ can be configured to verbally locate potential threats.

At less than 2 inches thick, the Passive Portal™ features a non-intimidating, new-age appearance, unlike that of standard metal detectors.

Because this new technology uses very little power, it can run on its built-in batteries for approximately 12 hours of operation, or when connected to a 110/220-volt power outlet, the system can be operated under AC power with its included power supply.

The Passive Portal™ can scan up to 1200 people per hour. This is 3 seconds per scan! With Bluetooth connection to the optional interactive tablet, the potential threat is approximated to a specific area of the body- dramatically speeding the threat assessment process.
