Datatag and CESAR Security Scheme unveil groundbreaking technology for Police and Security Agencies

In a significant advancement in the field of asset security, Datatag, the delivery partner of the Construction Equipment Association’s (CEA) CESAR Security Scheme, has unveiled its latest innovation of a RAPID check (Registered Assets Police Information Database) and a cutting-edge ‘Ultra Tag’ RFID transponder. This breakthrough is expected to considerably enhance the security of construction and agricultural machinery across the globe by equipping every police officer with the means to quickly check a machine’s ‘status’ on the secure database and significantly extend the read range of the CESAR system’s RFID transponders to assist police further.

The ‘Ultra Tag’, an ultra-secure RFID chip, is impervious to interrogation and compromise. Its enhanced reading distance, when used with a Datatag scanner, marks a substantial improvement in identification technology. This development is poised to significantly bolster the resilience of tagged assets against theft and tampering.

RAPID, a web-based application, represents a year of dedicated development by the team at Datatag and consolidates data from approximately 625,000 construction and agricultural machines into a single, accessible platform. The database is a huge benefit for law enforcement agencies, allowing all 142,000 police officers in the UK, and countless others globally, to access comprehensive data with just a smartphone. From South End to South Africa, the reach of a RAPID check is truly global.

The system offers a secure amalgamation of police, manufacturer, and insurance data and by simply entering a part of a vehicle identification number (VIN) or any related number, officers can rapidly determine the status of a machine. This feature is particularly crucial in identifying stolen machinery quickly thereby securing recovery
