The level of protection afforded to any given building or area is normally determined by the level of risk from intrusion or other criminal activity and ideally will comprise of several different but complimentary ‘layers’ of protection.

In this respect Perimeter Protection, in its various forms, is the ideal first level of protection; providing both an early warning of attempted intrusion as well as deterring and/or delaying entry of intruders.

Perimeter Protection is applied to the boundary of the property, be it the external fabric of the building or the boundary fence line in open or border areas.

Most situations would benefit from incorporating a KBS Perimeter Protection System in addition to any other security measures involved; however, for high risk and sensitive areas such as airports, military establishments, international borders, power stations, governmental establishments, nuclear power plants, oil & gas refineries, research establishments, embassies, residential establishments of individuals at risk from kidnap or assassination, banks, industrial plants, etc, the installation of adequate perimeter security is vital.

In addition, Perimeter Security can be applied to provide an early warning of intrusion or trespass and to instigate an alarm or audible safety message warning, etc. Perimeter Protection may be part of an integrated security system, i.e. CCTV would provide verification of an alert and radar would track intruders.

Microwave Intruder Detection System

The KBS Microwave Intruder Detection System is a perimeter intrusion detection system consisting of an all-digital transmitter and receiver that create an invisible detection zone that alerts when unauthorized intrusions occur.

Buried Cable – Perimeter Detection System

The KBS Cable Detection Sensor is a covert outdoor perimeter security intrusion detection sensor that generates an invisible radar detection field around buried sensor cables, if an intruder disturbs the field, an alarm is declared and the location of the intrusion is determined.

Targets are detected based on their conductivity, size and movement.

Cables can be buried into a variety of surfaces (ground, grass and concrete) approximately 23 cm below the surface and are completely covert; the cables are robust enough for direct burial in most surfaces.

The terrain-following, volumetric detection field is typically 1 metre high by 3 metres wide by up to 400 metres long.

Systems can be standalone or networked for long perimeters whereby sensor cables are connected together to create a continuous perimeter.

Buried Fibre Cable Long Perimeter Detection System

The KBS Buried Fibre Cable Long Perimeter Detection System uses a buried fibre optic cable and a centrally-located Sensor Unit to provide covert detection of intruders, vehicles, and tunnelling for a perimeter length of up to 72 km (45 mi).

No powered or conductive items are required in the field, making the sensor completely immune to EMI and lightning and impossible to detect through electronic means.

Perimeter Fence Detection System

The KBS Perimeter Fence Detection System is designed for applications where the detection of cutting or climb attempts is required.

The system uses Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms to precisely locate fence climbing or cutting to within 3 meters (10 ft) whilst ignoring harmless disturbances caused by wind, rain or vehicle traffic.

The system’s superior signal to-noise ratio, bandwidth and dynamic range produce superior probability of detection and a very low false / nuisance alarm rate (FAR/NAR )

Fence Mounted Intrusion Detection System

The KBS Fence Mounted Intrusion Detection System provides up to 50 km (31 mi) of protection in perimeter applications.

Its fibre optic sensor technology requires no powered or conductive items in the field, making the sensor completely immune to EMI and lightning and intrinsically safe in the presence of explosive atmospheres.

It will locate intrusions even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions or in the presence of non-localized environmental noise that would overwhelm the location capability of other long-range fibre optic sensors.

The systems resilient design allows detection to continue right up to the point of a cut in the sensor cable.

The system can be used on most types of metallic fences including chain-link, welded mesh and expanded metal. A single pass of sensor cable provides effective protection for fences up to 3 m (10 ft) in height.

The sensor may also be used on palisade-style fences depending on the specific characteristics of the fence.

The system is extremely rugged with built-in self-test, condition monitoring and calibration.

The radar system constantly scans 360 degrees up to 800 metres once a second.

The radar fills a volume of space in which detection data is processed every 25 cm from the sensor out to the 800 metres instrumented range.

If objects are detected in the pre-programmed alarm zones, the system will command the CCTV to focus on those threats.

The system is capable of detecting multiple intruders in different areas simultaneously and can be configured to trigger audible alarms or activate other security equipment. With fully automated detection capability, the system removes any possibility of human error.

Ground & Marine Medium Range Radar

The Radar delivers an improvement in sub-clutter visibility by approximately 30dB against other radar technologies; this means targets with small radar cross sections (RCS) such as soldiers can be detected even in the presence of heavy land clutter.

It provides superior situational awareness through increased probability of detection of small targets and by detecting these targets at greater ranges than other competitor’s radars.

The coherent radar utilises the unique technology, proving low cost, low power consumption, lightweight design, ultra-high reliability, and superior performance.

Key features include jamming resistance, counter surveillance, covert mode and interchangeable dome covers to suit project requirements.

Doppler processing enables detection of extremely small and slow moving targets in poor weather conditions, day or night.

The high performance X-band ground surveillance radar is designed for easy installation on multiple platforms, including vehicles with fixed or telescopic masts, and is display agnostic.

The system provides the user with a discreet means to build the surveillance picture, thereby contributing to overall situational awareness. With 360 degrees of coverage, the radar is one of the most powerful sensors available in its class.

Ground & Marine Radar System

The KBS Ground & Marine Radar System provides the ability to detect small and slow moving targets both on land and over the water.

This allows it to operate in littoral or coastal regions where the radar is searching for targets such as walking persons, canoeists, RIB’s and jet-skis either over the land, open water or in tidal areas.

In addition to detecting small and slow targets the radar can also detect fast moving boats and/or large ships.

The radar’s flexibility allows it to be used for inland water surveillance such as lakes and reservoirs, on the land/sea margin including shoreline and harbour surveillance, and out to open sea for long range surveillance of covert targets.

It will operate in all weather conditions and continuously 24 hours a day making them particularly useful for security applications at night and in foggy conditions.

The radar is typically used with long-range surveillance cameras and thermal imagers, enabling security staff to detect and then identify the intruders or their boat.

Individuals moving throughout a facility can immediately identify their exact location in a crisis via the transmitter carried with them.

A variety of features and system configurations are available to readily interface with any security control equipment or the PAS-120, a complete multiplex system.

The same transmitters and receivers are used in either version.

Pipeline Protection :

Acoustic Fibre Optic Pipeline Security System

Preventing or detecting leaks caused by corrosion, environmental or malicious damage is a major challenge to gas, oil and  water pipeline operators faced with ever tighter regulations worldwide.

Where pipelines run through sensitive areas or over long distances in remote, hostile territory, conventional monitoring and protection methods can be stretched beyond effective limits.

If a pipeline is damaged by a natural disaster, terrorist attack or other interference, significant revenues will be lost and the resulting leakage could be dangerous to the local population and cause environmental damage.

The KBS Acoustic Fibre Optic Pipeline Security System (AFOPSS) is designed to protect gas, oil and other utility pipeline distribution networks and their remote facilities by providing an early warning of leaks, illegal taps, excavations and intruders which could pose a potential threat.

If a pipeline is damaged significant revenues will be lost, damage may also be caused to the local environment and the leakage could be a potential danger to the local population.

More importantly a terrorist attack on an unprotected utility pipeline could have catastrophic consequences.
