GE Security to Submit CommerceGuard for Test and Evaluation by CBP

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

GE Security, Inc.,  announced plans to submit its CommerceGuard container security solution for participation in the next phase of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) testing and evaluation of conveyance security devices (CSD). 
CommerceGuard is a solution for global supply chain security, currently helping to protect intermodal shipping containers while they are in-transit by adding intrusion detection to other security measures already in place in the supply chain.  Test and evaluation is an important step forward on the path to better protecting seaports and the entire global supply chain with the critical security layer CSDs can currently offer.
According to the Department of Homeland Security’s original synopsis of its request for information about conveyance security devices, “CBP is interested in understanding and testing the current state of the art in those CSD Systems offered as existing commercial products.  The intent is to obtain mature CSD Systems to be tested in laboratory, field and under operational conditions in order to evaluate system readiness for operational deployment…”
The CommerceGuard container security device is mounted inside a container as it is being stuffed for shipment in order to monitor for, and report on, potential en route tampering.  While in transit, the devices communicate securely with fixed and handheld readers. The readers forward encrypted security and tracking information wirelessly to the global CommerceGuard Information Network where it is accessible by authorized shippers and officials such as customs officers.  Automated tamper alerts are routed to appropriate authorities when warranted.
