Hi All,

I have this expression in a slide dealing with the interpretation capabilities of an IMINT (Image Intelligence) System.
The meaning of it is that it periodically "goes back", or "looks into" or "visits" each of the components of the system.
What would be the Spanish translation of it?

TIA

    Can you provide one or two sentences from your context where "gatekeeper" is used?
    I suggest that you check again your context.
    In general, "gatekeeper" refers to a a person, device or entitty that controls access to something.
    See applications for this term here: Gatekeeper (disambiguation) - Wikipedia
    "gatekeeper" translates into "portero/guardiián".

    "Portero" and "guardián" end up not fitting well in the more abstract use of access control. I would say "filtro de control de acceso" o "controlador de acceso".

    Yes. I agree that both "filtro/controlador" fit better.
