Don't sacrifice highly trained law enforcement, military or security personnel as exposed targets.
Additional personnel at a security entrance or secured site are required due to the already understood, inability for one guard to "contain projected velocity." Typically and all too late, security personnel react to armed provocation without the strategic advantage of containment. Thus they are a step behind, as it takes the human body 3/4 of a second to effectively react to stimuli.
Even the sharpest of operatives periodically fall victim to complacency and lack of focus. These are but a few reasons, that without the advantage of containment, the first security officer to confront an armed assailant is not only at an extreme disadvantage, but in peril as well.
Conversely, bullet resistant automated security entrances, integrated with screening devices, manned or not, render the same assailant isolated, ineffective and without the element of surprise.
Security personnel recognize that an armed assailant is not deterred by detection. Typically the moment of detection merely becomes the catalyst for the assault to begin.
This is especially so for an organized assault, whereby the first perpetrator, by his actions, activates and identifies security measures for the benefit of a main force. This main group has now gained a tactical advantage as they go unnoticed while they pre-target security forces responding to suppress the immediate threat. The main assault group now has the advantage over the distracted and exposed security force.
By automatically detecting and isolating the first assailant, a proactive security system protects security personnel and denies a broader attack on the entrance from ever occurring.
Isotec Security's deepest concern is that one day the inherent weakness of reactive vs. proactive security will be exploited at very dear cost to the facility targeted, the security personnel charged with its protection and citizenry. Our mission is to insure that does not happen.
