Perimeter Security Enhanced by Lockheed Martin’s VAMS Solutions

LMSSC (Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center)’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC), has exhibited a ground-breaking Versatile Advanced Monitoring System (VAMS), for border security solutions for both commercial and government agencies.

VAMS employs off-the-rack firmware and Santa Clara’s Intelleflex software, along with essentials designed by Lockheed Martin, including altered interrogation protocols and firmware, latest tracking and detection programs and continuous end-user reactions.

Peter Mehring, CEO and President of Intelleflex, said that the ATC has devised an incredible ground-breaking security solution, that complements the novel XC3 products developed by Intelleflex, , while incorporating the vigorous XC3’s capacities, inclusive of a 100 mt. range of response, complying to the latest ISO 18000-6 Class 3 Standards. The need of the day, as far as the US Government is concerned, seems to be security fortifications of border areas, and also vital infrastructures by using a three pronged strategy, of preventing, protecting and being prepared for possible emergencies, such as terror attacks, natural disasters and accidents.

The VAMS system can be easily installed and has an enhanced lifetime period with a two-year battery life. It consists of a group of sensors that trade data with a power resource where the quality of the signal generated is consistent during peaceful environments and turbulent times.

VAMS takes advantage of Intelleflex’s COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) technology, and attains elevated security levels by supplying area protection, outdoors or indoors, at a viable performance-cost ratio. When compared to conventional security systems, this system is  considered superior as it can recognize invasions in 3D, and exactly identify both mobile and immobile objects in spite of them wearing protective paraphernalia and clothing. The sensors identify intrusions that are not normally detectable by conventional models such as infrared, motion, security or pressure cameras, and pass on the data to the command. The sensors can be installed at any place without any limitations. At the point where the intrusion takes place, the contact systems of several sensors in the neighborhood will be impinged on, depending on the position of the trespasser and the sensors, to different degrees. This variation or difference is utilized to establish the location and the number of invasions. The range of detection could be broadened, by enhancing the output power of the antennas to more than one watt, which is normally needed by FCC standards.

In an on the site demonstration, the RF system merges smoothly with a zoom and slew capacity camera, where the information gathered could be studied continuously, and alerts sent out in one or two seconds after the intrusion being identified. In a milieu similar to a control room, the users track the movements in the field, and change to manual option, for checking system ranks and verification of trespassers.
