Mobile Perimeter Security

Mobile Perimeter Security is a persistent surface to air drone and hovercraft solution for monitoring land based terrain, desert, prairie, rural or remote infrastructure facilities. Our solution uses a variety of vision technologies to conduct several tasks including fence patrols, suspect detection and tracking, detection of smoke, fire, gas leaks, etc. Tasks can be partially manned or autonomously, all-terrain and 24/7, day and night.

The Mobile Perimeter Security is a combination of drones, hovercraft, tethers, stations, cameras, sensors and an array of related technologies which deliver actionable intelligence, direct response and countermeasures in normally inaccessible regions. Around the world law enforcement and security agencies are looking for more effective ways to monitor or protect a perimeter, while the defense industry is exploring how this type of solution competes with helicopters performing the same operations.

Mobile perimeter security is designed to provide a cost-effective platform capable of protecting critical infrastructure such as pipelines, wind farms, solar parks and electric transmission lines in remote areas. Surveillance and monitoring of sensitive areas such as ports and airports, UAVs can be used to keep a suspect “in sight” while a pursuit is underway in urban or rugged terrain environments.

Perimeter security is just one unique POD ops application where drones and hovercraft provide surface to air surveillance and response.  Hov Pod offers an autonomous mobile perimeter security solution that can patrol a perimeter 24 hours a day, seven days a week, managed remotely and able to perform multiple tasks on-site.  Having a hovercraft drone stationed on-site, makes the operation mobile on any terrain, charged and continuous and enables fast reaction to any need in the field, day or night.

OPTION 1 Actionable Intelligence - Mobile Perimeter Management

The POD Ops is unique, our solution is designed to monitor the perimeter from the air, on the surface, below the surface or underwater and on any terrain.  We offer multiple tools from wide area cameras installed on drone programmed to sweep search an area, to night vision or thermal cameras that are installed on unmanned hovercraft  USV capable of traveling back and forth from land to sea or drones UAV. 

Listening devices can also be used on our drones or hovercraft, each can be outfitted with sonar and GPS.  Our amphibious hovercraft can utilize single beam or multi beam echo sounders and sonar for sub-terrain monitoring as well as provide surface response or the ability to move from water to land.  

Additional sensors and other equipment can be added to drones or hovercraft to detect gas leaks, thermal energy, or smoke, and with a hovercraft provide surface response and to life safety capabilities. Lighted drones with voice messaging could be used to direct employees or the public to the best exit route in case of a mass evacuation.

Besides locating suspicious activity, the system could potentially be used to “track a target” to an otherwise unreachable location. For example a drone might be utilized to see at night, warn vandals, access a situation before it becomes a threat, engage pirates, follow suspects, even  perform facial recognition.

Option 2 Drones - Mobile Perimeter Security

Drones fly to any way-point in seconds, visually detects humans and tracks them, leading security personnel to suspects in real-time while streaming live video and location to operators in the control room. 

Drones fly a pre-defined route to identify suspicious activities near the facility perimeter. The drone is able to continuously search for moving objects while on patrol, alert and stream live videos in case of suspicious movements detection.

With drones there is real time flight management, flight tracking, planning, and sensor data management and dissemination enabling multiple UAS operators to plan and remotely share video, pictures, and tracks.

Each of our drones have the capability of “looking down” with high resolution video cameras to survey and search an area. Via on-board video recorder or FPV (first person view) technology, we can survey extensive terrain in real time. Once a subject of interest is located, the exact location can be relayed back to the ground crew. On-board video can also be downloaded for post-flight inspection.

Average flight times for these all electric drones is usually between 10-25 minutes giving the pilot enough time with several batteries to scan an area miles in diameter using a zig-zag sweep pattern or expanding spiral search pattern. One drone can search an extensive area in minutes that might take an entire group of ground personnel to cover in hours.

OPTION 3 Hovercraft - Mobile Perimeter Security

Hov Pod All Terrain Hovercraft are extremely useful on areas designed, built, or used for traveling off public roads, especially concrete, gravel roads, unpaved trails, beaches, uneven terrain or any flat wilderness.  Due to inaccessibility there are large remote terrain, amphibious landscapes and marine expansions that are difficult to monitor or secure. Resolving the issues of managing these areas will become more urgent as fishing depletes coastal resources, climate change forces migration and protecting borders rises in importance.

Given the logistical and economical challenges of monitoring monuments, sanctuaries, remote facilities, multi-terrain perimeters or protected areas creates unique security issues. Deploying the right surveillance technologies can increase monitoring capability and guide law enforcement personnel to suspicious activities.  Hovercraft deliver all terrain capability meaning the Hov Pod Military Hovercraft can act immediately taking a direct line for fast response without concern to water depth or other surface limitations in its path.

Hov Pod Hovercraft are well suited for rolling terrains of grasses or grassland and are able to operate on this landscape without affecting natural habitat or ecology. This is important because these rich areas between forest and desert receive 10 to 30 inches of rain per year and the ecosystem is delicate, hovercraft are extremely agile on these delicate landscapes and will not contribute to the erosion.

POD Ops monitoring and enforcement strategies, present some of the most efficient and cost effective solutions for operating in these challenging areas and monitoring human activity.

Option 4 Tethered Drones - Mobile Perimeter Security

Tethered drones are one of the most promising and powerful new technologies for continuous monitoring operations. Tethered drones naturally complement traditional perimeter security operations by helping to ensure that operations can be conducted safer, faster, and more efficiently.

Aerial perimeter security operations are extremely costly with traditional fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. Tethered drone may aid and support search efforts in many situations for a fraction of the cost in risk, and resources.

Once a subject of interest is located, the drone could detach from the tether and track or engage, while the hovercraft  provides surface response. Onboard video can also be downloaded for post-mission inspection. One drone and a hovercraft can search an extensive area in minutes that another crew may not be able to reach or that might take an entire group of ground personnel to cover in hours.

Drone tethered to hovercraft technology is highly deployable. Drones and hovercraft, can be launched in a variety of environments without the need for a runway. A tethered can be stationary or mobile, able perform surveillance around a single perimeter or multiple coordinates and tethered drone perimeter application can operate for extended hours.

Option 5 HoverHome - Mobile Perimeter Security

Drones have distance, flight time and operational limitations due to battery life, maximum remote control range and line of sight restrictions. If the home station is in a static location, operators must ensure that drones stay within remote control range or line of sight and that each drone has sufficient power to get home safely.

Autonomous all-terrain mobile surveillance, security, border patrol or search and rescue operations?

Mobile Drone Station - HoverHome is a mobile all terrain automated battery swap station, that not only allows for operation in remote areas but when a drones battery gets low, our robotic station can land the drone, swap the battery with a freshly charged one, and relaunch the drone to resume its mission. All with or without a pilot or crew on-board.

HoverHome - Mobile Drone Station is expanding the capabilities of commercial drones, by allowing for launching and landing on water, amphibious or hard to reach terrain.
