Security at Divis Mountian
The Divis Mountain radio transmitter, located above Belfast, Northern Ireland, is defined as Critical National Infrastructure. It is the country’s primary TV/Radio transmitter, and the only one that uses mast stays. A manned guard solution was considered to protect the site but ruled out. The final solution consisted of Navtech’s AdvanceGuard high definition radar security system. The system consisted of three Navtech AdvanceGuard radar sensors, that continually monitor the site in all weathers and light levels. AdvanceGuard detects, tracks and identifies potential threats and records the information to its database. When an alarm is raised, the system automatically positions the cameras to provide complete situational awareness to the operators and enables an immediate response to be deployed.
