MEDS at Port
Current port security solutions are frighteningly breachable. Armed security guards cannot be everywhere at the same time. Security dogs are a continual upkeep and require training as well as not having the ability to make critical, time sensitive decisions and dogs can be lured into submission. CCTV security cameras are effective as surveillance, however not useful if not incorporated into a complete security system. Electric and standard fencing are able to be bypassed and disabled and are useless against water-based intrusion or attacks. Lighting can deter but can’t stop anything. Radar is a useful long-range air and surface based solution but is useless for short range or underwater security breaches. Equipping ports with an advanced detection system can dramatically decrease hostile intrusion or destruction of ports and docked assets.
Don't be on land without it.
- Integrated systems designed to detect intrusion from multiple quadrants
- Systems can be installed while port is in service
- Port Authority assistance with installations cut costs
- System operates from one command console eliminating the need for multiple guards and command stations
- System can provide local and remote reporting and monitoring of individual sectors, off-site facilities and wide area assets in real time.
- Integrated system designed to give advance warning prior to security breach thereby giving time to take appropriate action.
A Closer Look at MEDS Onboard
With day/night and infrared gyro-stabilized cameras and motion detection equipment strategically placed, crews are alerted to the presence of an approaching threat. Bearing and speed data are provided through a radar interface. This is integrated into a security network on board with custom control panels and alert devices placed throughout the vessel. Custom control and monitoring can be satellite linked to corporate security offices, central monitoring and law enforcement personnel.
