TERRAIN SCANNING SYSTEM
Safeguarding large areas
The Oxylus terrain scanning system
In many applications it is necessary to survey very large areas for human activity. When monitoring large areas such as reserves, borders or farm lands, it is difficult to cover the entire area with short range cameras or other detection systems. The Oxylus system is a modern, powerful system designed to monitor large tracts of land for animal and human movement. It includes the following features:
• 360° surveillance
• Thermal and daylight cameras
• 24 hour monitoring
• Accurate geo-locating of target objects
• Low operational cost
• Ease of use
The main objective of the Oxylus system is to pro-actively warn about incoming threats. It is designed to maximise the response time so that the appropriate response can be launched. Traditional perimeter detection only covers a narrow area, and leaves little time to plan a response. Scanning in areas on either side of the perimeter, in addition to the perimeter itself, allows for more time to act on incoming threats.
International border surveillance, as well as fence surveillance is a critical component of securing an area. Some of the challenges include harsh environmental conditions with extreme temperatures, dense vegetation, and large tracts of land into which trespassers can escape. The Oxylus system was designed to deal with these problems, detecting crossings, but also warning of incoming threats and detecting humans that have already crossed and are now hidden in the wider area.
Poaching in game reserves is very difficult to detect and control. Traditional perimeter detection can assist, but in large areas it is equally important to find trespassers once they have crossed the perimeter.
Farm protection is a complex issue as the threats can come over long distances and it is impractical to put short range sensing devices such as cameras to cover the entire area.
