The National Safe Skies Alliance – an independent US organisation that assesses airport security systems – has completed its evaluation of the Singapore Technologies (ST) Engineering AgilFence Perimeter Intrusion Detection System (PIDS).

AgilFence was installed in January 2017 at the Safe Skies Perimeter Test Facility in McGhee Tyson Airport, Tennessee. Tests were carried out under an ISO 9001:2015-approved quality management system.

The PIDS already meets UK Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) standards, and ST Engineering hopes that the Safe Skies Alliance evaluation will pave the way for US airport deployments.

“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,” said Goh Wai Pheng, General Manager, Satcom and Sensor Systems, Electronics, ST Engineering.

“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.”
