R&S®QPS - solutions for Critical Infrastructure security

Critical Infrastructure entry security

With the introduction of new laws - such as the EU NIS2 policy, the KRITIS law in Germany and Martyn’s Law in the UK - physical security measures are now legally required for critical infrastructures, such as:

  • Power plants
  • Water and waste water systems
  • IT and telecommunications facilities
  • Government administration organizations
  • Financial institutions
  • Municipal waste disposal facilities

This means:

  • Controlling access and monitoring to prevent unauthorized entry
  • Security screening of personnel, including external personnel and service providers

The addition of new security measures can result in:

  • Queuing and congestion at entry/exit points
  • Privacy concerns
  • High staffing costs
  • Psychological impact
  • Operational complexity

The R&S®QPS provides comprehensive screening capabilities while avoiding the drawbacks of traditional security measures. Using cutting-edge millimeterwave (mmWave) technology, it detects all types of objects, regardless of material. It also offers the highest throughput rate on the market, which minimizes queuing during peak time shift changes.

Challenges of CI / Critcal Infrastructure security

The R&S®QPS addresses the numerous challenges associated with critical infrastructure security:

  • Sabotage
  • Terrorism
  • Public disruption
  • Managing peak time shift changes
  • Staffing problems and costs
  • Governmental mandates
  • Variability of objects of interest
  • Non-intrusive, respectful screening of visitors
  • Integration into existing security system
  • Low OPEX

High-performance solutions for critical infrastructure security

The R&S®QPS is ideal for critical infrastructure security. With its high precision screening capability, it detects threats of any kind within a matter of seconds. The scanner lowers operational costs by reducing the need for a large security staff. In addition, its robust design, built-in self-diagnosis capabilities and lack of moving parts result in lower maintenance costs.
