In addition to delineation and surveillance, the PASZ system will be designed to receive, manage, interpret, and disseminate data. Information received through the digital camera system will be interpreted by linked programs, including face recognition databases, license plate databases, vehicle type and color identification programs, etc. When combined with the digital cameras’ imaging functionality, the nature of a hazardous situation can be assessed more confidently and an appropriate response can be enacted.

The PASZ system can be utilized by the military in numerous ways.

  • Checkpoints. Soldiers and marines frequently need to stop motor vehicles to check for potential hazards. In these circumstances, a PASZ kit is deployed to create a lane for vehicle inspections. Using the digital camera system, an operator inconspicuously photographs the license plate and driver to check against known terrorists. The camera is also used to examine the undercarriage of the vehicle to check for improvised explosive devices (IEDs) or other hazardous materials. From the data that are gathered, the personnel onsite determine an appropriate response while remaining out of harm’s way. In this manner, the lives of more American military in the field are protected.
  • Controlling and managing traffic. For any number of reasons, soldiers and marines periodically need to control and manage traffic around a lane due to problems in that lane. By deploying the PASZ system, lane changes are easily accomplished. Personnel remove the delineators from the box, extend them, and connect the retro-reflective, retractable tape from one delineator to the next. In less than a minute, the new lane is created, and traffic can flow again. Furthermore, by having the tape at ground level, motorists are able to process the lane change more quickly, that is, to see the changes in three dimensions, thereby reducing potential secondary accidents.
  • Perimeter security. The PASZ system can protect sensitive areas, buildings, and posts by being deployed as a perimeter buffer zone. An operator/s can then monitor the surrounding environment/environs from a safe distance and respond appropriately should a situation develop.
  • Airstrips. Special operations periodically need to employ improvised airstrips. On those occasions, several kits can be deployed to mark the area and assist pilots in landing their aircraft. (Special lighting can be readily exchanged to accommodate operational needs).

DoriQuest feels the PASZ system will improve the safety and protect the lives of military personnel in harm’s way. DoriQuest would appreciate the opportunity to present the PASZ system to the appropriate managers within the military and security agencies for additional support in research, funding, and development.
