Border Surveillance and Perimeter Intrusion Prevention.
Fotech's LiveDETECT system is augmented to deliver information 24/7 and only reports on actual threats to your perimeters and borders - whether protecting against perimeter intrusions, illegal border crossings, terrorist, or criminal activity.
Getting accurate intelligence quickly and efficiently can be a challenge for pipeline operators.
Fotech’s fibre enabled, distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) technology provides you with a real-time toolset to monitor your pipeline with confidence.
Gain real-time visibility of the integrity and security of your entire cable network.
Whether protecting against copper cable theft, data interception, subsea anchor drag, or locating cable fatigue and break down – optimise your network with technology that reports on integrity issues and actual threats to your cable infrastructure.
Fotech’s DAS technology converts the optical fibres already in place in our cities into millions of acoustic and vibration sensors.
This allows cities to send and receive information with the benefit of providing anonymity to its citizens, but also to monitor city infrastructure continuously – in real-time and on a much more detailed level.
With LivePIPE® smart pipeline monitoring system you can gain instantaneous visibility of the integrity and security of your entire pipeline network.
