Radar is the latest addition to Secure Engineering’s electronic surveillance system options, and is ideal for large sites, such as airports, chemical plants, power stations, military locations and other critical infrastructures.
Secure recently supplied radar technology to a power station site in Kent. The company in question felt that the system would suit their needs well, as radar offers superior perimeter detection, and a host of other benefits.
Radar works well alongside, or as an alternative to manned guarding. It operates in all weather and lighting conditions, has a 360 degree field of view and very long range. This highly effective solution uses high frequency radar to scan a wide area and will alert when intruders are approaching. Using advanced tracking, it will control CCTV cameras to follow and record their progress across a site. These images can be transmitted quickly via wireless or fibre-optic networks, and recorded for later analysis.
Radar is compatible with thermal, IR, and low light CCTV cameras, making it easy to select the most appropriate technology for the project. Properly designed, radar can also have defined rules, so that when threats are detected, it links to alarms, automatically closes or opens gates and controls lighting to further deter intruders.
Radar can also be utilised on highways, to safeguard the public. If used to scan motorways, this system will quickly alert the authorities if vehicles have stopped in a dangerous place, or if individuals are walking along the carriageway.
Advancements in technology have made radar both a reliable, and a cost-effective choice.
