Border Security Monitoring
Protect your borders cost-effectively
Technical limitations and environmental factors can impact the performance of many border security systems—leaving them vulnerable to infiltration. Protect your borders cost-effectively with a fiber-optic Linear Ground Detection System (LGDS) that utilizes smart technology to identify multiple threats reliably and in real time.
Advanced Border Security with Linear Ground Detection System
The OptaSense LGDS converts a standard telecoms fiber-optic cable into an array of distributed sensors capable of detecting changes in pressure, temperature, stress and acoustics. Using advanced algorithms, this system can classify and locate activities such as people, vehicle movement, low flying aircraft, digging, gunfire and many other events.
With this insight, agents and field patrol gain a complete picture of the location, scale and type of threat detected—enabling rapid, more informed decisions that result in faster, more efficient responses.
DEPLOYMENT OPTIONS AND APPLICATIONS
This deployment enables the detection of surface activity such as:
- Personnel (10ft range)
- Vehicles (20ft range)
- Manual digging (30ft range)
- Shallow tunnelling (20-30ft range)
This deployment enables the ability to detect physical interference with asset, such as climbing, sawing, cutting and other tampering.
This deployment enables the ability to detect deeper tunnels, with fiber cable depth dictated by desired detection depth and geological conditions. Specialized optical units and fiber optic cables can extend detection ranges.
