ACSD Sensor System Tracks Shipping Containers

The Department of Homeland Security has taken up a scheme for expanding a sophisticated sensor system for checking shipping containers from the storage points to the delivery points in the naval supply chain.

The Advanced Container Security Device (ACSD) is a small entity that can be fixed to the interior portion of a container which verifies all the six angles for any sort of interference or existence of human shipments.

Upon detection of any such sort of interruption the device broadcasts warning information to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection by means of a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System.

The classic plug-and-play system in the device facilitates the easy installation of other commercial and security sensors such as chemical, radiation or biological factor determination sensors using a quality interface.

As many as 40 model systems have already been tested, evaluated and delivered and by the coming financial year the project will implement advanced technologies to overcome the defects that have been identified during the model system testing trials.
