According to a UN report, Maritime transport is essential to the world’s economy. Over 90% of the world’s trade is transported by sea, and it is by far the most cost-effective way to move mass goods and raw materials around the world.
Being a primary entry point in any country or city seaports warrant special attention when it comes to security.
The most common security solution for ports’ perimeters is a mix of indicative fences and video analytics which incur high installation and maintenance costs and generate a multitude of false alarms. These solutions are also not functioning in some conditions, such as heavy fog or rain.
Minimum Installation. Maximum Coverage.
Twenty Magos SR500 radars cover the perimeter of over 8KM.
The radars detect up to 500m and cover 120˚ in azimuth and 30˚ in elevation giving best in class coverage of 60+ acres with a single sensor and no blind zones underneath the radar due to the wide elevation coverage.
Seven PTZ Cameras with laser illumination are auto-cued to all radar detections via Magos MASS control software.
MASS Software integrates the radar’s detection with the PTZ cameras to follow the detected targets and Video Management Software (Octopus PSIM and Symphony VMS in this case). Anytime a target is detected within an area of interest MASS generates an event in the VMS. MASS also integrates Magos’ breakthrough deep learning classifying to filter nuisance alarms.
Conclusion & Advantages
Full Coverage for Critical Areas
The Past Condition
Over 110 fixed FOV VMD cameras were installed in the perimeter. The cameras have limited capabilities in bad weather and lighting conditions, therefore are less reliable. As their cost includes installation, maintenance, and commissioning it could exceed hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The New Solution
Only 20 Magos radars were needed to replace the cameras. The radars operate in all weather conditions, providing extensive coverage of critical areas with a low false alarms rate and a fraction of the cost of any other perimeter solution.
