Utilities and Critical Infrastructure Perimeter Intrusion Detection

Utilities Solutions 

Concerns over keeping our nation's utilities protected from terrorist contamination and/or destruction have heightened in today's world. Our societies are entirely dependent on the delivery of power and water.  Given the importance of this infrastructure to communities worldwide, it is imperative that necessary proactive measures be made to secure these critical generation and distribution infrastructures from terrorists intending to damage, destroy substations or contaminate a city's main water supply, causing widespread power outages, illness, disruption, and even death.

PureTech’s PureActiv wide area and perimeter protection solutions helps utilities improve the safety and security of generation and distribution facilities and assets with a tangible Return on Investment.  PureTech’s wide-area perimeter protection solutions automate the protection of land and water-side perimeters to help ensure the safety and security of personnel and critical assets. 

By detecting intrusion events at the perimeter, before they result in more catastrophic events, loss of life, and operational downtime, utility authorities and law enforcement can intervene to deescalate situations and quickly return to normal operations.  The PureActiv system provides detection, alerting, and proactive deterring of potential safety and security events, which helps protect lives and critical assets. With 17 years 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 and combine 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 when you need them

Key Automated Detection Capabilities:


  • Person or vehicle approaching or breaching perimeter,

  • Unauthorized water vessel in secure water area,

  • Person in unauthorized areas during unauthorized times,

  • Vehicle and people tailgating through entry points,

  • Vehicle stopped,

  • Person in area around critical infrastructures,

  • Person loitering,

  • Wrong direction of travel,

  • Vehicle and people counting,

  • Unsafe crowding, and

  • Object removed or left behind.​

Key Integrations:

  • Market leading VMS and PSIM systems minimizes IT changes and training,

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

  • Loud hailers and spotlight / lighting systems to deter people from perimeters,

  • GPS for blue-force tracking (people, land and sea vehicles),

  • License Plate Recognition systems, and

  • AIS (commercial ship transponder) for ship tracking.

Other Key Capabilities: 

  • Longest range, Highest probability of detection, with the lowest false alarm rate,

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

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

  • Geospatial map based command and control common operating picture provides optimal situational awareness,

  • Live intruder and event locations displayed on GIS map,

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

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

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