Using fibre optic cables that are often hidden from view, Fotech’s distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) technology monitors international borders automatically, giving users an enhanced understanding of activities as they happen, and gather intelligence on events and patterns in and around borders all around the world.
With DAS, you can detect, locate, and prevent unauthorised border crossings or interference.
Fotech’s LiveDETECT border surveillance technology can be applied to borders of all kinds:
Open Borders: Detect movement in the vicinity of the border using buried fibre optic cables - on one side or in a parallel configuration for enhanced detection information, such as crossing direction
Fenced Borders: With fibre optic cables installed along a fence detect attempts to climb, dig beneath or tamper with the fence
Integrated Fenced and Buried Cables: Maintain continuous surveillance along your border no matter the configuration, or with parallel fibres monitor soft and hard border zones for enhanced visibility of border activities
LiveDETECT® can be integrated with other sensors, such as CCTV, thermal cameras, or infrared sensors for complete protection of borders.
For the most effective response to a threat to a border, LiveDETECT can be integrated with a UAV (drone) system, such that when a threat is detected a UAV can be automatically launched and fly to location to identify further details about the threat, let intruders know they have been detected, warn them away or follow them.
With algorithms optimised for border security LiveDETECT can be further used to provide the location of disturbances on fences, walls, and areas around key assets.
Why send costly security teams to cover more ground than necessary or spend time investigating false alarms, potentially missing critical events along the border? Fotech’s powerful software allows users to confidently track events and activities along a border to within metres and in real-time. Meanwhile, advanced AI is working to minimise false and nuisance alarms, ensuring that only information about the activities that matter is reported.
