Alexandria, VA / Singapore, September 26, 2018 – ST Engineering today announced that its award-winning perimeter intrusion detection system, AgilFence PIDS has completed testing and evaluation by US-based National Safe Skies Alliance, Inc. (Safe Skies). Safe Skies is an independent, third party non-profit organisation funded by the Federal Aviation Administration that works with airports, government, and industry to maintain a safe and effective aviation security system. Safe Skies conducts rigorous and thorough evaluations to detect threats and nuisance and false alarms, and documents the reliability and maintainability of security systems within active airport operational and environmental conditions. Evaluations are performed under an ISO 9001:2015-approved Quality Management System.
The AgilFence evaluation report, entitled ASSIST PTF: Evaluation Report – AgilFence Fence-Mounted PIDS, document number SSDA 18-028, is available for distribution to qualified airport personnel at US commercial-service airports. Parties interested in obtaining a copy of the evaluation report may contact firstname.lastname@example.org with their request.
“We are proud to have completed the rigorous testing process with USA National Safe Skies Alliance at the Safe Skies Perimeter Test Facility,” said Mr Goh Wai Pheng, General Manager, Satcom and Sensor Systems, Electronics, ST Engineering. “A combination of advanced optical fibre sensing technology and proprietary signal processing algorithm makes AgilFence unique in providing very high levels of detection accuracy without the traditional compromise of dealing with numerous false alarms in complex and challenging environments. The ease of installation onto existing fences, and highly resilient and scalable architecture also reinforces its effectiveness as a wide-area perimeter protection solution for various key infrastructure and high value assets.”
Since its launch in 2011, AgilFence PIDS has been vigorously field-tested and deployed by global security agencies for the protection of high-risk critical national infrastructures, including national airports, gated residential estates, mass rapid transit and train depots, bus depots, military bases, oil and gas pipes, telecommunication sites, as well as water and electrical sub-stations. Notable deployments included the Singapore Changi International Airport as well as Eco Glades’ gated residential development in Malaysia.
AgilFence’s state-of-the-art technology has won several international awards and endorsement, such as by the Center of Protection for National Infrastructure (CPNI) of the UK government in December 2016 for its use to protect critical national infrastructure, covering Communications, Emergency services, Energy, Financial services, Food, Government, Health, Transport and Water sectors. AgilFence also won the Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award 2013 (Technology Innovation) from The Institution of Engineers Singapore, as well as the ASEAN Outstanding Engineering Achievement Award from the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisations.
