ISS (Intelligent Security Systems) announced that its SecurOS UVSS (Under Vehicle Surveillance System) solution was deployed to protect stadiums and other venues throughout Qatar that are hosting matches and events as part of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

In partnership with the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, Qatar-based systems integrator Gulf Networks Security Solutions and a large, on-site technical team, ISS installed 40 UVSS units at vehicle checkpoints for the eight World Cup stadiums in and around Doha, along with three logistics areas and a fan zone to safeguard visitors.

The UVSS units, which are portable, enable security personnel to scan the undercarriage of vehicles for foreign objects, such as explosives or contraband, as quickly as three seconds. The units are powered by NVIDA GPUs and can also be connected to ISS’s licence plate recognition (LPR) technology to keep track of vehicles entering and leaving the venues.

“Having ISS fingerprints on an epic event like the FIFA World Cup, which is being hosted in the Middle East for the first time, makes us extremely proud,” said Aluisio Figueiredo, CEO, ISS in a statement.
