Port Security and ISPS Code
New legal requirements of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code, developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), contain a multitude of internationally binding measures to provide better protection against terrorism aimed at ships and port terminals. Ships may be attacked and used for arms shipments or misused as a weapon. Ships and port facilities are exposed to a completely new threat potential since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Our Performance Range
Kaba Benzing and its partners support operators of port facilities, shipping companies, administrations, and authorities to implement the special safety requirements that are written down in the ISPS code.
This ranges from risk and vulnerability analysis up to the creation of comprehensive port security concepts. Kaba Benzing is the specialist in Enterprise Data Collection. This means Time and Attendance, Access Control, and Production Data Collection as well as communications solutions for all current ERP systems.
With approximately 5,900 employees, the Kaba Group is one of the leading providers in the security industry worldwide.
With Kaba Benzing’s network of sophisticated partners for all safety-relevant areas we feature an incomparable offer. Together with system and software providers we offer consulting services, conceive your demands, and realize your project.
Profit from our experience in numerous projects such as Eurogate, Hansaport, Color Line, HDW, Rhenus Midgard, P&O Nedlloyd, and many more.

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.
A warming planet
Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
New technique promises tunable laser devices
Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...
Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
