Research Institution
Naval vessels docked at foreign ports are highly vulnerable to security risks ranging from attempted illegal boarding to direct attack from land or sea, and cannot have permanent security systems available in each port. A means is needed to provide simple, reliable, portable, rugged perimeter security in these conditions. International Electronic Machines Corporation (IEM), leveraging our work on multiple security, smart sensor, sensor fusion, and rugged monitoring and measuring projects for agencies ranging from the United States Marine Corps, NASA, the U.S. Department of Transportation, New York State, and others, will develop a Portable Intelligent Perimeter Sensor System (PIPSS) to automatically and reliably detect any attempts at intrusion from all directions, alert all appropriate locations to such attempts, perform equally well in all weather and lighting conditions, have no personnel requirements other than for setup, takedown, and alert response, require no more than one or two crewmen and an hour for setup, function for long periods without maintenance, be able to accept, use, and combine data from both built-in and third-party sensors, be expandable, adaptable, and customizable to meet the security demands of all sorts of vessels in different settings and mission profiles, and be highly affordable (<$4,000 per unit).
