Perimeter Security System for Airports and Sensitive Spaces

The FP1100-X perimeter intrusion detection system from Optellios has been tested independently by  the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The report, titled Optellios FiberPatrol FP1100-X Perimeter Intrusion Detection System Effectiveness Evaluation Test Report, is being made available to authorized departments via the TSA ACO-200 Web Bulletin Board System.

Optellios's perimeter intrustion detection system

The solution is a fiber-optic intrusion detection system that will track intruders entering enclosed spaces through the perimeter fencing. It has a long-distance communications fiber optic cable that will help track and identify even multiple trespassers. The system functions even after the sensing cable is cut off , which is an exclusive capability among the current fence sensor technologies. The tests were conducted by the National Safe Skies Alliance, which is an autonomous external NGO that is financed by the Federal Aviation Administration. The NGO, Safe Skies, works for public interest by holding unbiased tests of security infrastructure.

The system was tested continuously on a daily basis over 9 months between November 2009 and July 2010, through all weather conditions prevailing in each season. The system was installed at the test site and then left unattended for the entire period. It will offer cost- effective and dependable perimeter security vigilance for airports and other sensitive spaces.
