Friend or Foe Radar Detection

AdvanceGuard gives you accurate, reliable, future-proof surveillance – but did you know if you add Navtech’s unique ‘friend or foe’ software to an AdvanceGuard system, you can instantly differentiate between known and unknown people and vehicles? With its user-friendly and highly-specific identification, friend or foe radar software gives you full situational awareness at all times and in all light and weather conditions.

Friend or foe radar target classification

On complex sites, friend or foe’s ability to tell authorised from unauthorised activity can prevent safety breaches and reduce nuisance alarms. This unique feature is fully configurable and adaptable to your site’s needs – you can change the settings to prevent alarms being triggered by your own or authorised staff and vehicles. The alarm is only raised when genuine threat occurs, and your operators can respond quickly and confidently.

How does AdvanceGuard’s friend or foe solution work?

Critical Infrastructure perimeter protection

GPS trackers, added to authorised vehicles and personnel, are integrated to AdvanceGuard, allowing the system to accurately pinpoint their location and marking them as friends. Whenever the radar detects movement, it provides real-time location data to the operators, who can quickly and easily see whether a target has been tagged as ‘friend’ or ‘foe’.

AdvanceGuard’s intuitive, user-friendly interface makes friend or foe even more effective because the target categories are easy to see. 'Friends' are shown clearly in green, and do not trigger an alarm when they are undertaking authorised activity. When unauthorised presence or activity is identified, the target is shown in red, an alarm is raised, and operators can act swiftly with precise, real-time location tracking and data.

AdvanceGuard with friend or foe can track intruders whether they are on foot or in vehicles, and can follow an unlimited number of targets simultaneously.
