Newtown, PA (January 31, 2012) – Optellios, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of advanced fiber-optic sensing and security systems, announced today that it is scheduled to deploy several intrusion detection systems designed for perimeter security applications. Powered by the FiberPatrol X sensing technology, these systems will use a single fiber-optic sensor cable that will be either fence-mounted or buried in ground along different parts of the same site perimeter. Fence-mounted parts of the sensor will detect and locate intruders trying to breach the fence, while in-ground segments will alert security personnel when someone crosses over the invisible sensor line.
“Optellios has developed and delivered a unique ability to identify and locate disturbances of dramatically different nature with a single perimeter sensor“ said Brian Freeman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Optellios. “With our advanced sensing technology, it is now possible to secure a complex perimeter with a single intrusion detection system that provides better performance and detection capability with a significantly lower cost of ownership than a multi-processor alternative,” added Mr. Freeman.
The mixed-application perimeter security system, FiberPatrol FP4100-X, is designed to interrogate every point along its fiber-optic sensor cable independently, which allows different detection methods to be applied to fence-mounted and buried parts of the sensor. Mixed-application systems may also incorporate wall-mounted sensor segments. The FP4100-X systems will be deployed at several mission-critical sites in the US and internationally and is a significant addition to the existing FiberPatrol suite of products.
The projects involved with the awards include oil and gas, petro-chemical, power generation and military facilities. Freeman explains that “Each installation brings with it a unique set of challenges ranging from the nature of the threats to be detected, environmental conditions and integrations to existing security systems. Because FiberPatrol is designed with these issues in mind we can provide a solution to meet the specific needs of each site. The FP4100-X makes the task of meeting these challenges easier to manage and maintain. ”
The FiberPatrol systems from Optellios feature long range perimeter capability, immunity to cable cuts, and the ability to detect and locate multiple simultaneous intrusions. Based on an open architecture, the FiberPatrol® systems also integrate easily with other security components such as access control, video management, and command and control systems.
