It automatically identifies abnormal behaviour and raises immediate alerts so that a response team can intercept before damage is done.
Industrial Sites are generally very expensive investments with important site security measures being employed to protect their infrastructure. It is paramount that only authorised personnel access the site. Other personnel are potential security risks and need to be detected and apprehended. AdvanceGuard has the most reliable and accurate intruder detection capability. It detects people and vehicles on both land and water, covering all approaches to the infrastructure. A virtual perimeter can be created and any breach automatically alerts the operator. Industrial sites often have a large number of people moving about, so the 'friend' or 'foe' feature can be enabled to identify unauthorised personnel and apprehend them.
Governments invest vast quantities of money on their nation's defence in the form of military equipment and state-of-the-art technology. These investments are contained on military sites that need superior levels of protection due to the dangerous and high-cost paraphernalia they contain. AdvanceGuard provides the best intruder detection ability on the market. It detects people and vehicles on both land and water, covering all approaches to the military site. AdvanceGuard provides optimum security for sites as potential threats are detected prior to intrusions, and the system differentiates between "friends" and "foes" identifying intruders easily.
Energy Generation Sites
Energy Generation Sites are generally very expensive investments, so site security measures are important to protect this infrastructure. It is paramount that only authorised personnel access the site. Other personnel are potential security risks and need to be detected and apprehended. AdvanceGuard is ideally suited for this security application as the system has the most reliable and accurate intruder detection capability. It detects people and vehicles on both land and water, covering all approaches to the infrastructure. A virtual perimeter can be created using the Witness software, and any breach of this virtual line will set off alarms and alert the operator to potential perimeter breaches. The systems automatic superior detection is constant all year round as the performance is unaffected by extreme weather and light conditions. AdvanceGuard provides optimum security for sites as potential threats are detected prior to intrusions, eliminating all damage to high-cost investments.
Oil and Gas
Oil and Gas plants are renowned for political controversy and subsequent activist activity. The challenge is ensuring that unauthorised personnel are not only prevented from entering the site but and incursions that occur are apprehended immediately. AdvanceGuard helps prevent these events from disrupting the production process as the system has very reliable and accurate intruder detection capability. Potential threats are detected prior to an incursion event as abnormal behaviour is identified beyond the perimeter. The massing of crowds would be automatically recognised, enabling defensive action to be considered and implemented before intrusion on to the site has occurred.
Critical National Infrastructure
Power Stations are national assets and their security is of strategic importance. AdvanceGuard is ideally suited for this specific application as the system has a greater capability than other security technologies even in the worst environmental conditions. Designed to help prevent access into sensitive or high-security areas, AdvanceGuard's perimeter surveillance is the first key barrier to prevent intrusion. Any target, be that vehicle or person, can be detected over a wide-area on land or over water. The system can be configured to provide detection well before a breach into a critical zone occurs. The radar operates as an early warning system as its wide-area coverage allows the monitoring of areas beyond the perimeter, detecting potential threats prior to intrusions.
National borders need to be very secure with all movement of people between countries monitored and regulated to reduce illegal immigration. Physical boundaries are normally erected that work alongside manned guard and roving patrols, however, AdvanceGuard eliminates the need for both outdated security measures. Using Witness Software, the system creates a virtual border that can be automatically monitored. Any breach of the line will set off alarms and alert the operator to potential perimeter intrusion. The operators will be provided with the exact number, location and direction of movement of intruders. This improves the response teams apprehension of intruders and reduces illegal immigration numbers.
