Personnel Security & Asset Management System
AVANTE RFID based security system and solution for personnel safety and security management have found many applications in critical infrastructures such as utility complexes for water and electricity distribution, nuclear, petrochemical and chemical facilities that must meet the “Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards”, CFATS.
Besides helping to secure critical assets and personnel with RFID based sensors security system, the solution enhances the safety of the personnel working in such environments with real-time location and motion visibility. Ultimate security is achieved by coupling such RFID based sensors with IP-based video analytics and monitoring. The solution is web-based that is further enhanced with GPRS, WiFi meshed network and Satcom communications.

Some or all of the above RFID based security systems and applications are covered by one or more of the following US patents: 7,513,425;7,508,308; 7,501,954; 7,423,535;7,382,255; 7,342,497; 7,319,397;7,158,030; 7,098,793; 7,036,729;6,961,000; 6,943,688; 6,883,710;6,703,935; 6,696,954; 6,657,543; and other pending patents.
AVANTE RFID based Personnel and Assets Visibility System (PAVS-500) for personnel security and assets Management is the state-of-arts access control management solution incorporating the best combination use of active and passive RFID technologies. Each personnel badge consists of both passive and active components. The passive RFID chip provides short-range and secure role-based access management.
The active RFID portion provides the combination of daily nodal short range in-out monitoring of critical access point using low signal strength with read distance of 10-15 ft. This is achieved non-intrusively with non-obtrusive reader-antennae without the badge holders ever having to flash or present their badge. Coupling with suitable software and proper configuration of readers, the system provides the first real-time in-out visibility of personnel within a complex.
More importantly, AVANTE Personnel and Assets Visibility System (PAVS-500) for personnel security and assets Management provides the first ever real-time visibility in case of personal or facility emergency. When a personnel is in safety crisis such as danger in parking lot or having a health crisis anywhere in the work environment, the personnel badge can be used as a “on-demand” badge by transmitting at higher power. This “on-demand” function provides real-time location of the personnel in stress.
In case of a facility based emergency, “upon command” by the first responders, all or specific badges can be triggered automatically to transmit at higher power to provide a real-time locations of anyone remaining in the facilities during evacuation. For the first time, the guess work is eliminated in the evacuation management of the most complex facilities with hundreds and thousands of personnel.
The traditional short-range secure access control passive RFID card is embedded in the access card along with traditional access card reader for traditional access control system application using industrial standard of Wiegand communication protocol. This design allows easy integration with existing electronic access control systems.
For dangerous working environments such as mining, chemical, nuclear, and other safety-first working environment, the RFID based Security System (AVANTE PAVS-500) may be programmed to activate the real-time locating capability and system to operate at all times.
