AWIMS, is an inventory control, security and awareness system for units of different sizes and capacities. With a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) base and software developed completely by ATEL engineers, it is a system that shows when and by whom weapons in the inventory are taken.
Personnel may only take weapons that they have been authorized to remove from the armory. If the weapon is not returned at the time and date specified to the personnel, AWIMS informs the authorities in various ways.
The number, type, serial number and other information of the weapons in the armory can be tracked and reported if requested by the user. Information on the personnel and weapon and the reason the weapon was taken is tracked continuously. Also by warning personnel of weapons that require servicing, weapons maintenance is conducted without flaw.
With the information gathered from closed circuit cameras and previously attached RFID tags not only will unwanted events be preventable but malevolent acts and mistakes can be averted.
