Sengex has been awarded a task order under the GSA vehicle from U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) for the procurement of mobile wireless device detection systems
Sengex will provide systems training and support for AirPatrol’s Rapid Deployment System (RDS). This new capability for INSCOM will enable them to achieve on-demand location-based detection of unauthorized wireless devices within INSCOM facilities.
Sengex demonstrated AirPatrol’s Wireless Detection system within South Carolina’s Department of Correctional (SCDC) Broad River correctional facility. This demonstration was designed to show how SCDC can locate a contraband device within a prison population to determine which cell the device is in and provide for continuous monitoring.
While the prison facility is a very challenging environment from an Radio Frequency prospective, Sengex working with AirPatrol and the prison officials was able to demonstrate how the AirPatrol product is able to overcome the environment and provide a much needed capability.
The demonstration showed SCDC officials a capability that can eliminate inmates ability to make unmonitored calls via contraband cellphones that can result in activities that include, managing criminal enterprises, drug deals, credit card fraud, planning prison riots and escapes, while in parallel reducing the risk to employees and public officials’ safety.
SCDC is in the process of evaluating the results of the demonstration to determine the feasibility of its use across multiple SCDC locations.
