Canada,Sweden,United Kingdom : NAVTECH RADAR keeps airport costs down with its security software system.

Advance Guard radar-based perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) installed at 16 major European airports, Oxford, UK Navtech Radar believes it attained the balance between technology and guard service, who indicated that all of the Navtec systems are compliant with the standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ISAC) security manual 8973.

Security breaches result in huge losses due to the evacuation process or temporary closure of an airport especially in commercial airports that are very expensive and difficult to secure, in adverse weather conditions. The frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) 76GHz technology, with radar design and the ability to operate 24/7 in all weather conditions.

The Advance Guard system enables low installation and the overall cost of ownership that is competitive compared to traditional fence detection systems, and the radar surveillance technology can deliver cost-saving by re-addressing the balance between technology and manned security guarding by offering 360 degree radius detection with a range of up to 1,000 meters.

Multiple overlapping sensors can be networked to offer site wide security coverage, controlled and monitored through a single PC running Advance Guard s sophisticate physical security information management software.

Navtech s technology, Fernando Garcia Rodrigues, Facility and Security Project Manager of the Valencia Airport said, we had a number of main issues we wanted to address with the new wide area surveillance solution. We needed to detect intrusions to the airport area, follow intruders once inside the airport, and avoid expensive civil work. We had to cover a huge area but had no tube bank or any other canalisation available for cabling as well as minimize communication and power costs. We further wanted to have the same alarm rate and response in any weather or light conditions and present a friendly and easy-to-use system for the operators. Now, we have a solution with a very low false alarm rate, we can distinguish between friend and intruder and in the latter case follow the intruder -- which makes it much easier, and faster, to direct the intercepting security patrols.

Navtech Radar is a precedes in its design and manufacture of high accuracy, cost-effective security and safety systems, which combines the company s long range millimeter wave radar technology and the sophisticated witness analytical software.
