First of all, Pipeline Security is a persistent surface to air solution for monitoring pipelines in any terrain or amphibiously. This includes desert, prairie, rural areas, coast line, inland waterways, multi landscaped, rugged terrain and large remote regions.
As a result, exploiting a drone's ability to tirelessly loiter for hours at a time, is an important part of our solution. Consequently, tethered with hovercraft, a wide-area camera is capable of capturing a visual record of everything below that moves or changes over time.
The solution is effective because, it is a unique integration of the latest surveillance technologies, the all-terrain capability of hovercraft and the aerial capacity of drones. As a result, the solution is capable of operating in mostly inaccessible high risk pipelines, crude oil pipelines, refined product lines – gasoline, aviation fuel, chemicals etc., gas pipelines, underground power, drinking water.
Furthermore, the issue for drone surveillance is range, especially when operating in harsh terrain. Mobility and persistence, the ability to stay on station for hours while waiting for the opportunity to collect as much data as possible.
Pipeline Security delivers actionable intelligence from remote locations, hence you quickly respond or engage from the surface or from the air. Rather than a traditional surveillance system, fixed cameras, security guards or barriers alone, we offer a continuous and persistent mobile security solution.
As a result, you have increased visibility, therefore heightened awareness, augmenting the ability to respond quickly to any alert, incident or intrusion
The threat of terrorism or vandalism in today's world of intelligence and reconnaissance makes mobile pipeline security a very valuable capability.
Pipeline Security - Difference
Especially relevant to the conditions, the solution operates day and night in addition to being all weather. Pipeline Security integrates hovercraft, drones, tethers, robotics, low light cameras, thermal imaging, sonar, echo, radar, sensors, AIS, VHF, weather forecast, record/backup and replay, therefore provides actionable intelligence.
Furthermore, monitor target areas autonomously with pre-programmed routes, prevent intrusions, theft, tampering, illegal tapping attempts, and unauthorized access along buried pipelines from a few miles to thousands of miles long. In addition respond with an array of non-lethal countermeasures deployed from multiple positions and from the surface to air.
In addition deploy from any terrain as opposed to traditional land based systems, while receiving a live video feed from the areas monitored by the drone, hovercraft, or static surveillance options. The system is optioned base, therefore integrates existing surveillance systems or comes with a fully operational command center.
With Pipeline Security a drone can point its unblinking eye at the ground below, capturing a medium definition image twice a second day or night. If, for example a car driving within the field of view becomes an incident with a passenger shooting a gun out of the window, the system will record it.
Therefore, scroll backward in time, watch the car being driven out of a garage down the street, into the location where it will ultimately stop. That sort of information can alert a response to track or follow the car and ultimately lead investigators to the scene of a previous crime or the perpetrators home base.
