Eurosatory 2018: Fibre-Optic-Based Border Protection System in Europe

LIGHTLINE detects multiple threats, humans and vehicles, with an extremely low false alarm rate

DSIT Solutions Ltd. recently announced completion of the underground installation of its LIGHTLINE fibre-optic-based border protection system along dozens of kilometres in two border areas in Europe.

According to Mr. Dan Ben-Dov, DSIT’s VP Sales and Marketing, “one of the burning issues in Europe today is border protection. The ability to monitor and control long borders with a network of cameras is extremely challenging, even if there is a sophisticated and advanced command and control system. The system that we developed provides significant advantages for border protection. It can precisely determine if and from where a potential threat is approaching, and rotates the closest camera in that direction. Our system requires almost no maintenance or infrastructure and has an extremely low false alarm rate.”

Developed in collaboration with Tel Aviv University, LIGHTLINE is a fibre-optic-based sensor solution for border protection and diverse Homeland Security (HLS) applications. Placed below ground, every movement near the protected area is detected, with its precise location displayed on a map. The solution is capable of accurately locating multiple simultaneous intrusions along the fibre, in real time. It has an intrusion detection accuracy of 2m (software selectable), as well as a footstep detection and classification, and a vehicle detection and classification range of dozens of meters from the fibre-optic cable.

Mr. Ben-Dov continued: “The system is already working and functioning exceptionally well in locating threats approaching the fence in its 2 locations in Europe.”

Eurosatory 2018 is showcasing the future of innovation across the land forces sector and MONCh (Moench Online News Channel at www.monch.com) brings together key developments from the show.
