Rapid Transit Security

Rapid Transit Solutions

The threat to commuter transit systems and the potential loss of lives and economic losses due to service interruptions make it imperative that our country’s metro systems are properly protected from terrorist and safety related events. Transportation authorities are tasked with ensuring safe and convenient travel that is affordable and always available. PureTech’s PureActiv solutions can help transportation authorities improve the safety and security of the rail operations with a tangible Return on Investment. 


By detecting events before they result in more catastrophic events, loss of life, and system downtime, transportation authorities and law enforcement can intervene to deescalate situations and return the system to normal operations with minimal service interruption. The PureActiv system provides detection, alerting, and proactive deterring of potential safety and security events, which helps protect lives and critical assets. With decades of field deployments and continuous innovation, PureTech’s patented AI Neural Net based video analytics provides very high probability of detection with a very low nuisance alarm rate.  Additionally, PureTech’s solutions include integrations with other sensor systems to provide the most effective and affordable safety and security solutions. The solutions scale incrementally so that you only pay for the capabilities you need.

Key Automated Detection Capabilities:

  • Unsafe crowding,

  • Person too close to edge of platform,

  • Person falling off platform,

  • Person on tracks and in tunnels,

  • Vehicle on tracks,

  • Vehicle stopped, person, animal in tunnels,

  • Large object on tracks,

  • Person in area around bridge and other critical infrastructures,

  • Person loitering,

  • Vehicle and people counting,

  • Person and vehicle tailgating,

  • Wrong direction of travel, and 

  • Secure perimeter around service yards, and fueling depots.​

Key Integrations:

  • Integrated with leading VMS and PSIM systems minimizes IT changes and training,

  • Integrated with train control systems for proactive intervention to stop the train,

  • Integrated with multiple sensor technologies (radar, fiberoptic sensors, etc.) for the most cost effective detection coverage,

  • Integration with loud hailers and lighting systems to deter people from entering tracks,

  • Integration with GPS for blue-force tracking,

  • Integration with License Plate Recognition systems.

“It (PureActiv) automates the real-time detection and notification of any object of concern on the rail tracks so risks are mitigated with minimal operational impact.”


PureActiv Railway Intrusion Detection Systems

Other Key Capabilities:

  • Among the highest probability of detection near-zero false alarms,

  • Auto-verify, AI Neural Net verified object classification before presenting to the user,

  • Available for fixed and rapid deploy mobile (truck or trailer) deployments,

  • Automatic drone dispatch to alarm locations for birds-eye live view,

  • PTZ camera lock-on-target tracking of intruders,

  • Built-in VMS option available for both live and recorded video viewing,

  • Geospatial map based command and control software aides in event location awareness, and


  • Push alarm events with images and video to mobile devices.

Need a Rapid Deploy  Solution?

(R-DAPSS) enables airports, borders, military bases, seaports, transit agencies, and utilities to quickly deploy a temporary or permanent high fidelity virtual perimeter system at substantially less cost and time than a hard-wired solution.  The PureActiv R-DAPSS provides the same best-in-class level of perimeter intrusion detection, auto-verification, and automated deterrence as a hard wired-solution.  Security and facility managers can now secure their perimeters quickly without planning and executing a large construction project.
