Magal Security Systems, Ltd. announced today that it has received an order to secure 200+ km of buried pipeline with its fiber optic sensor system.
The system is based on Magal's state-of-the-art COTDR long range fiber solution, which uses standard single mode communication fiber to detect any attempt to dig close to the pipeline - be it for terror or criminal tapping.
Saar Koursh, CEO of Magal S3, commented: "I am very proud of this order as it is a major win for our fiber business, resulting from many demos, trials, proofs of concept and smaller projects. We have managed to mature our solution, extend the maximum coverage range and put ourselves ahead of the competition."
"We are now successful to expand our business into a new market for Magal, pipeline security, alongside with a few prestigious other technology players. This is an emerging market with a potential size of tens of thousands of kilometers", added Mr. Koursh.
