In 1990 Takashi Ueda (the founder of Kaiyosogo Kaihatsu Co., Ltd., abbreviated as KSK) developed a land based infrared camera surveillance system. The product was named the ‘Terrestrial Mounted Model’ and was initially used by the Japanese fisheries patrol.
In 1994 KSK was established to provide advanced vision systems for the Japanese maritime surveillance market.
In 1997 KSK developed a ‘5 axes stabilized enclosure vision system’ for maritime security. This new ‘Stabilized Enclosure Model’ opened new markets for KSK; the Japanese coast guard deployed the solution to detect boats being used by drug traffickers.
KSK’s customers requested a solution that helped them to identify the name of a vessel or locate objects in the dark that could not be detected using IR or thermal technology. During 2003 in response to these requirements KSK successfully developed a ‘laser illumination system’ for telescopic CCD camera systems.
Over the years KSK’s customers have continued to request increasingly complex functionality. As a customer oriented company KSK listened and developed advanced capabilities such as an automatic identification system (AIS) and automatic target tracking algorithms.
In 2011 KSK introduced a ‘passive body scanning system’ which detects objects concealed under a person’s clothing. Using terahertz sensing technology the system can detect weapons, explosives, narcotics and is easily integrated within a security checkpoint.
KSK strives to meet our customer’s requirements by developing new solutions with leading edge technologies.
