As an important public facility in Singapore, tight security control was required to safeguard the facility from intruders.
FiberPatrol, which is the Fiber Optic FIDS is a modular fence-mounted perimeter intrusion detection sensor system, that detects and locates intruders using fiber optic technology. FiberPatrol senses and locates minute vibrations in the fence fabric caused by climbing, cutting, lifting, or otherwise disturbing the fence fabric. The 2-year project entailed the implementation of a system capable of generating an alarm within one second from the onset of an attempted breach. This is inclusive of breaches involving aggressive contact with the system, such as an intrusion attempt by quick climbing. The system was applied on sliding gates and drainages which was challenging.
