PipeGuard provides a solution for securing buried assets, gas and oil pipelines and infrastructure of buried communication lines such as fiber optic cables.
PipeGuard utilizes an innovative and unique technology to guard buried pipelines, regardless of pipeline length, with the ability to detect potential attack and alert authorities before potential harm or damage occurs. Its target market includes Oil & Gas companies, owners and operators of pipelines or communication cables and governmental agencies dealing with security and environment.
PipeGuard combines well proven sensors - geophones, with advanced edge of technology recognition algorithm capabilities based on the analysis of seismic signals, thus effectively filtering out false alarms. Using state of the art communications, only predefined signals are transmitted to the control station.
PipeGuard is suitable for all pipes or cables, from existing and operational pipelines, to new pipelines under construction. The system can easily be integrated into a full turnkey security solution, including perimeter protection, ground or air patrol and others. By answering the challenge of securing pipelines, Magal offers a total security solution for the Oil and Gas industry - from the oil field to the refineries.
So, basically, after a bomb goes off and blows up the pipeline, a signal is sent to an office somewhere. Not trying to be flippant be it seems impossible to guard a pipeline. By the time a signal has been received the damage is already done, no?
The unique capability to sense, analyze and identify a real threat immediately as it is introduced, enables the controller to take action and guide the closest response team to the accurate location of event. In most cases, the system will notify the controller as early as the saboteur is organizing himself in the vicinity of the pipe by for example unloading heavy equipment from a truck. In most cases, this will leave the pipelines security team about 30 minutes to react before a contact with the pipe is made by the intruder.
Yes , that is correct. A big bomb blows up there shit and then it goes flying everywere! Then they send a little signal telling them, "hey assholes you just lost another pipline!!!" So yes, that is about right...LOL
