Zistos Corporation and Desert Snow – Leaders in Vehicle Search Tools and Training – Working Together To Stop Vehicle Borne Threats to Secure Areas



Zistos Corporation, a leader in the manufacture of video based vehicle search tools that are designed “to see where your eyes can’t go”, is now working with Desert Snow, the leader in vehicle search training techniques.

Zistos Corporation’s professional quality vehicle inspection tools will now be used in classroom and hands-on training by Desert Snow’s equally professional staff.

Zistos_GroupShot - Pole, Trolley, BatonThe key components to a proper vehicle inspection procedure consist of three key factors:  how to “look”, where to “look” and what to “look” for. This combination of tools and training will provide security personnel and law enforcement with the tools, skills and knowledge needed to perform effective and meaningful video inspections of passenger and commercial vehicles. According to Ron Hain of Desert Snow, “Desert Snow’s 25 years of relentless pursuit of Criminals and Terrorists combined with Zistos’ unparalleled detection technology safeguards like no other team.”

In addition to counter drug and smuggling operations by law enforcement, vehicle inspections are also a requirement for many industrial and commercial security mandates such as CFATS (Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards) and CTPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism). There are many similarities in the tactics used both by terrorists and smugglers in perpetrating criminal acts. In both cases there are many instances where a vehicle will be tampered with in order to hide smuggled goods, contraband, weapons or explosives.

The tell-tale signs of tampering are what the law enforcement/security inspection team are looking for. These signs can be subtle and very difficult to observe. There are two different fundamental requirements to perform this task successfully and to help insure detection:

  • A tool is required that can provide clear detailed images in areas that may be difficult / dangerous to access
  • The knowledge of where to look and to recognize a suspicious indication of tampering

The Zistos Corporation – Desert Snow collaboration links these primary requirements and delivers a total comprehensive solution to the end user. A security solution that provides a real potential to thwart criminal acts and to protect the safety and integrity of commercial operations, personnel, facilities and the public at large.
