Protecting critical infrastructure and assets
With this information, asset owners can increase the effectiveness of response mechanisms, such as patrols and helicopter reconnaissance, by ensuring manual inspection is focused on areas of real activity.
Installation is a simple process. After having the fiber buried or attached to a fence using a third-party, our experts are at your service to install the required hardware and calibrate the system to its environment. No certification is required for installation, and no hardware or power is required in the field. All electronics are indoors in a controlled environment— protecting equipment from EMI, RFI and other hazardous environmental conditions.
The system is software based, allowing easy alterations to perimeter adjustments and/or changes to the number of zones being monitored. The system is also easily integrated with other systems and sensors, such as CCTV cameras and VMSS, for a more robust security management solution.
The PIDS system has also proven valuable protecting critical assets in other market sectors, including utilities, industrial, transportation, commercial, and residential.
For measurement, the system utilizes a Coherent Optical Time Domain Reflectometer, or Interrogator Unit (IU), located alongside the processing unit. After injecting laser pulses down the length of the fiber, the IU reconstructs acoustic signals detected from the backscattered light along the cable.
Signal processing software is used to analyze these signal in real time, with a 10m location accuracy.
