Sentinel is a software designed to organize the security of a public place and prevent vehicle ramming attacks used by terrorists. It is based on a geographical map where the user can place movable equipment and measure the speeds reached by hostile vehicles.
The use of vehicles as weapons in terrorist attacks has been a concern, and vehicle ramming attacks can have a devastating impact in crowded places with low levels of visible security. Sentinel aims to address this threat by providing a tool for security professional and event organizations to plan and implement measures to mitigate the risk of vehicle ramming attacks.
By utilizing a geographical map, users can strategically position movable equipment, such as barriers or obstacles, in order to create a secure environment. The software allows users to measure the speeds reached by vehicles, helping them assess the potential threat and plan appropriate countermeasures.
It's important to note that a mitigation strategy for vehicle ramming attacks cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach. Each location has its own unique physical constraints and functional demands that need to be considered when designing security measures. Sentinel aims to provide a flexible and customizable solution that can be tailored to the specific needs of a given location.
