Airport Security – Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS)
The AdvanceGuard Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) is ideal for improving airport security due to it’s distributed architecture, which allows sensors to be placed anywhere to ensure that even the most obscured areas on your airport are covered. Matching the range of the sensor to the available line of sight, enables complete coverage that is cost effective and fault tolerant. A distributed architecture of sensors is the preferable solution as it delivers 100% coverage. In addition the system can detect likely threats beyond the perimeter to provide additional advance warning.
AdvanceGuard provides the exact location of any intruders anywhere on your site, both inside and outside of the perimeter, any time of day and in all weather conditions.
As a fully automatic system, operators are alerted with warnings or alarms when there is a potential, or actual perimeter breach. Detecting threats before the perimeter is breached, or reporting suspicious behaviour allows your security team to prevent breaches before they occur. As your operators are only alerted to real threats they remain alert and effective.
All alerts are displayed on a single screen using the witness Sentinel display, giving you full, real time situational awareness of incidents on your site and allowing you to direct your security team to intercept any intruders.
Airports represent a key target for campaigning individuals or organisations looking to publicise their cause and create disruption. Maintaining safety and security is therefore a major concern for airports around the globe.

Security combined with Surface Movement
AdvanceGuard has a compelling feature that makes it unique. The data from the sensors can be split and used for both security with AdvanceGuard’s control application, and for surface movement using the AIRMAX Air Situation Display System from Avibit for tower and approach operations. Avibit is a leading provider of next generation ATC solutions that enhance airspace and airport operations. AviBit focuses not only on the design and development of state of the art software applications for efficient ATC towers, but also on system integration for mission critical Air Traffic Control systems.
