DURATION: 1 October 2020 – 30 September 2023


FOCUS AREA: illicit materials, non-intrusive inspection, passive detection, artificial intelligence, deep learning, risk assessment, image indexing, data fusion

ENTRANCE will develop a comprehensive user-based toolbox for risk-based non-intrusive inspection of cross-border freight movements, with particular focus on the EU Customs Union border. Its aim is to enhance border security practitioners’ capabilities to detect a wide range of dangerous and illicit materials with minimum disruption of cross-border flow of goods.

The toolbox will automate risk-assessment and threat detection processes. It will provide a single integrated platform for all risk and threat related data and processes. In order to ensure its feasibility it will be validated at the EU Customs Union border by a series of field trials.

Foreseeable Outcomes:

ENTRANCE Toolbox consisting of:
  • Automated Risk Assessment, Threat Recognition and Information Sharing Platform (ENARTIS)
  • non-intrusive inspection technologies for detecting contraband hidden in high-density cargo
  • enhanced relocatable unit for non-intrusive detection of multiple threats
  • trans-European network of Radiation Portal Monitors (RPM) with novel high-speed detection technology

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 883424
