Protecting critical airport infrastructure has led to increased budget allocations to combat security threats and protect airport perimeters. A proactive approach is being taken to install integrated security solutions that will be interoperable with new, emerging technologies, as well as legacy security systems.
Railway, mass transit, and trucking facilities also have inherent characteristics that make them susceptible and vulnerable to potential attacks. From barrier solutions like bollards and fencing to analytical video and access control, Safeguards Technology can provide an integrated solution to protect your vital assets.
Seaports are also crucial gateways for the movement of international commerce and are vital to the economic success of our country. Ships that ply the maritime domain are the primary mode of transportation for world trade, carrying more than 80 percent of the world’s trade by volume. Vessels, containers, cargo, and commercial vehicles are also potential media for smuggling and infiltration of weapons and perpetrators, as well as potential conveyances of devices for direct attacks on port complexes
Taut Wire Intrusion Detection Systems
An international airport was in need of an advanced perimeter security solution, and with the help of Safeguards Technology – their needs were met. Six miles of our Taut Wire Intrusion Detection System was installed at the airport’s perimeter, providing a formidable barrier with intrusion detection capabilities. In addition to the Taut Wire Intrusion Detection System, a wall map of the perimeter fence complete with active LED zone alerts was installed. Tablet PCs were installed in the security vehicles that circle the airport. The PCs drastically reduced security personnel’s response time to alarms – making apprehension of an intruder much more feasible.
To protect against shutdown of the system due to computer failure, Safeguards installed a hot backup to the Perimeter Control Center which would automatically switch on and take over command of the system, ensuring an always-active and “smart” perimeter intrusion detection system. Safeguards Technology has delivered complex perimeter security system solutions to commercial international aviation facilities as well as products and solutions to smaller General Aviation and Fixed Base Operator’s (FBO) in need of securing their facilities and/or controlling access to their property to insure the safety and security of their customer’s assets while simultaneously providing for the national security of the country.

Intelligent Video Analytics System
Safeguards Technology has provided proven solutions to a variety of maritime security applications. Safeguards and our security partners will continue to work together to improve the existing baseline of maritime security planning efforts. An Atlantic Coast Port Corporation has awarded Safeguards Technology contracts to make two of their port locations more secure by implementing a security upgrade of which included an intelligent video analytics system dependable enough to maintain a high probability of detection during even difficult outdoor conditions. In addition to shifting weather conditions, the naturally occurring movement of sea water would cause a problem for typical motion detection systems. An Intelligent Video Analytics System (IVAS) was selected for its intelligent, 3-D image analysis, reliability, and speedy setup. The system was installed at the sea ports with both wired and wireless monitoring, along with a Security Access Control Portal equipped with Card Readers. The IVAS learned and adjusted to weather conditions at the port, and has reduced false alarms to an acceptable minimum.
