Port Security Application
Every day, millions of tons of freight enter ports all over the world. These bustling gateways to our countries are vital economic engines as well as pipelines for required imports. Hence, the security of ports is paramount to maintaining the safety of goods entering the nation and ensuring protection from terrorist attacks and other criminal activity.
Accipiter® Security Radar information networks provide automated analytical detection and tracking technology that identifies, locks on and follows small, uncooperative targets that may represent a threat, thereby delivering specialized enhanced security. Port facilities often involve wide areas of the marine environment. Accipiter's Total Coverage™ Technology provides complete cylindrical coverage of the entire aerosphere with user programmable scan patterns to support surface and air surveillance. The built-in M3™ multi-radar, multi-mission, multi-user information system combines multiple unattended radar sensors to cover the entire port water surface and eliminate the shadowing of obstructions for target data delivered to security personnel at any location.
Pre-set, automated analytical alerts add to the ease and flexibility of radar use, offering customized, cost effective, user-defined information about behaviour of interest. This means less monitoring effort and greater resource productivity in this critical sector. In addition to offering real-time tactical awareness, Accipiter® radars provide historical target data for investigations, intelligence gathering and security asset allocation decisions.
