On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Wolf Technical Services has won a $750,000 contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to refine technology to detect whether a vehicle might be carrying suspicious cargo, including explosives.

The Indianapolis company is working on a system that uses sensors to determine a moving vehicle’s weight distribution—calculating total vehicle weight and that of individual axles and wheels.

The sensor system could be embedded in a road or atop it and has particular application at military checkpoints. Currently, many checkpoints have entrances built in a serpentine configuration that slows approaching vehicles and causes them to sway, giving a hint as to whether they’re “anomalously” loaded.

The grant allows Wolf to complete final development and construction of a prototype that will be tested at Camp Atterbury. Wolf officials said the device could have broader application in government and commercial facilities.

Wolf conducts forensic engineering, consulting and R&D, and had landed numerous military contracts over the last 33 years.
