Land and Water Detection

Complex sites, particularly those with areas of both land and water, can be difficult to protect from intrusion. Sites that border or contain bodies of water may lack physical barriers and be unsuitable for conventional perimeter intrusion detection technologies.

Inside and outside perimeter detection, over land and sea

AdvanceGuard detects incursions over land and water. Its high resolution, 360° scanning radar and intelligent threat analysis mean that AdvanceGuard can detect people, objects and vehicles on both water and land.
With AdvanceGuard, you can detect and track pedestrians, swimmers, vehicles and watercraft at distances up to 3 km. With the AIS integration you can easily identify authorised vessels and suppress nuisance alarms. You can also link multiple sensors together, to cover and monitor your entire site, including inside and outside the land and water perimeter.

How does AdvanceGuard’s radar land and water detection work?

When AdvanceGuard detects intrusion, its fully automatic security system will take control of cameras, relays and other sensors, allowing your operators and guards to monitor and track the intruders and their activity. If you think the intruder poses a threat, you can act quickly to prevent disruption; if you think the intrusion is benign, you can ignore, monitor or end it as you see fit.
AdvanceGuard’s radar scans the water’s surface with extreme accuracy, helping to prevent access to sensitive or high-security areas by alerting you to, and tracking, all suspicious activity or unauthorised entry. You can scale and configure the system to provide detection well before a breach of any critical zone


Key features  


Why choose AdvanceGuard for land and water detection?

  • AIS Integration 

Integration with AIS enriches the situational awareness. Security teams can see the exact location of watercraft on their site and know which watercraft they are, providing high levels of information and keeping nuisance alarms from legitimate watercraft to a minimum. With friend or foe, it’s the best system you can have for monitoring inside and outside the perimeter. 

  • Real-time threat analysis 

AdvanceGuard gives you the precise location of swimmers, watercraft, people or vehicles, and tracks them as they move. It identifies their direction of movement and speed, providing accurate data for a fast, appropriate response.

AdvanceGuard’s high-resolution radar differentiates by size and categorises target types. It can filter out authorised personnel, vehicles or boats, to keep alarm rates low while providing reliable detection and tracking.

AdvanceGuard works automatically, directing cameras, relays and other sensors to track threats and leaving operators free to respond effectively.

With AIS integration AdvanceGuard can tell authorised from unauthorised activity; this means it alerts you only to genuine threats, and minimises nuisance alarms.

The system tracks any unauthorised presence in controlled zones on the water or land in real time, enabling a fast response. It can also recall the tracking history, which may be useful for evidence, analysis or training.
