CPVAS is a real-time access control security product. The proprietary solution integrates photographic and fingerprinting identification technologies with computer database solutions to enable vessel personnel or other security personnel to track individuals moving through the ports.

Sense is developing a portfolio of technologies and products that focus on the homeland security market, including biometric solutions, micro-sensor identification and RFID asset tracking. It is also developing a line of next-generation handheld explosive and chemical detection devices based on proprietary Micro Electro-Mechanical Sensors (MEMS), tiny "sniffer" chips that can be customized to detect a range of explosives, chemical and biological threats, narcotics or other substances. The Company is developing these products for use in airports and other venues.

The CPVAS system is based on an intranet browser that allows internal users access on site or remotely via a web browser application. Sophisticated, multi-layered security applications provide the hierarchy of authorization processes. In addition, the system is designed to be fully integrated with existing security systems. CPVAS also keeps track of all of the information and can generate printed security reports or others for transmission electronically or via fax. CPVAS is compatible with Windows 2000 or higher and an MS SQL Server database. All authorization requests are routed via the customers' current TCP/IP network, which also significantly reduces operation costs.
