The General Directorate of Customs is now equipped with a complete system of training in imagery enabling the strengthening of the customs officers’ competence in the field of control and the fight against fraud.
Detection devices such as radioscopic controllers are equipment that is part of the customs officers’ work environment. They constitute one of the main means of detection, in particular as regards narcotic products as for other types of illicit goods such as weapons and explosives.
The General Directorate of Customs wanted to provide Customs officers with a system enabling them, on the one hand, to reinforce their detection skills, thanks to a better reading of the fluoroscopic imagery and, on the other hand, to perfectly master the technology of these equipments.
This mastery is naturally acquired with experience in the field, but the latest technologies, which benefit a fluoroscopic imaging simulator, now make it possible to accelerate learning.
A simulator offers two basic advantages:
- it first authorizes the relocation of the training of the operational workplace
Web technology allows the agent to connect remotely, regardless of where it is, provided that it has Internet access. It is therefore no longer necessary to mobilize the equipment to carry out the training.
- it also increases the frequency of passing suspicious luggage, thus giving the officer the opportunity to reinforce his ability to detect threats he is not accustomed to seeing on a daily basis at his place of work.
The implementation of the LOGYx solution, in 2016, has made it possible to boost the imaging training center that Customs officers now enjoy, both in initial training and in continuing education.
The evolution of threats and regulations are constantly monitored by the LOGYx teams so that the training tool is closest to operational constraints.
The use of the LOGYx training system is a key element in providing effective and comprehensive training in imaging analysis.
