Third Eye™ Perimeter Protection & Intrusion Detection
The third eye, a mystical concept of an invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight.
Designed to protect defence bases and sensitive government infrastructure, ADOR's Comprehensive Perimeter Protection and Intrusion Detection system employs a host of sensors to allow cameras to make autonomous decisions of where to pan, tilt, zoom and focus.
It then uses software to then analyse the potential threats to decide if the threat is hostile, allowing personnel in a command and control room to make rapid and informed decisions to authorise a proportional level of response. Solutions can distinguish between humans and vehicles.
A typical control room could have as many as 200 screens monitoring various cameras, through a comprehensive perimeter protection system. Inputs from multiple sensors, devices and cameras are used to analyse alarms, make a threat level assessment and alert security teams.
The system includes passive and active imaging, radar, underground sensors, underwater sensor, drone based cameras and optical fibre sensors.
A perimeter protection and intrusion detection system will typically include:
Digital High definition Video Cameras
These cameras are typically linked so that a seamless handover occurs from one camera to another when a subject moves outside its pan, tilt or zoom capability (i.e. a set of cameras all talk to each other autonomously knowing where to look and when). Unlike analog cameras, such cameras may or may not have edge analytics based on the level of sophistication demanded by the mission.High definition cameras, including those that can see in full colour in zero lux at night are manufactured by ADOR in India.
Optical Fibre Cables
An detection system which utilises fibre optic cable as the waveguide sensor, integrating weather-protected fibre optic cables along the complete perimeter fence or underground along a fence of a base or critical location. Using an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer, the condition of the fibre cable is monitored continuously. Any breakage, tension, vibration is recognized immediately due to the change in light transmission creating an alarm pinpointing the exact location along the fence.
An unattended sensor could be an underground vibration sensor, an underwater movement sensor or any sensor that passively monitors a given location / area and creates an alarm when a change occurs, allowing cameras to focus on the area and run software algorithms to determine the threat.
In addition to the integrated equipment above, a high level perimeter protection system will often employ radar to detect movement close to the perimeter fence or inside a particular perimeter area, identifying movement of objects and informing cameras where pant, tilt, zoom and focus. Radar systems can also be integrated using RFID to deploy Identify Friend or Foe (IFF) technology as well and can function under extreme weather conditions of fog and snow.
Electro Optic (E/O) Sensors
An EO sensor is an integrated day night and Thermal Cameras with Pan, Tilt and zoom system. These are capable of long distance Detection (over 20km), Recognition and Identification ranges. These are capable of distinguishing between Vehicles and Humans.
Long Range Cameras
Depending on the size of the base and the terrain – sometimes a long range camera which can see 5 kms in the day and 3 kms at night or 1 km in fog maybe deployed as well. Such cameras in essence act as heavy duty binoculars and are triggered when any of the sensors above have detected a threat, proven as not a false alarm and the threat is in an area not very well covered by existing cameras. Ideally located on high points such as an Air
Traffic Control (ATC) Tower
These cameras provide maximum visibility in adverse conditions from a high vantage point. Ador manufactures long range 5km cameras in India.
These solutions use Radars to detect Drones, UAV’s, Low flying objects, etc and automatically focus the EO sensor tracking the target, . Solutions provide needed inputs for interface with weaponry systems for action.
